Canada occupies half of the North American continent and is the second-largest country in the world, after Russia. Moreover, everyone knows that it is a very cold country, north of the USA and that its national symbol is the maple leaf, but, in addition to this, there are many interesting curiosities about Canada that many do not know.

One of them is that there are more lakes in Canada than there are in the rest of the world, counting also the smallest ones. In this regard, it is that Canada collects 20% of the world’s fresh water and therefore is an important resource for this country.

An example lake is Peyto Lake located in Banff National Park; it seems to come out of a fairy tale for its particular color caused by the presence of melting ice that feeds the strong turquoise tonality. This lake is not the only turquoise lake inside the park, but there are other smaller ones like the Bow Lake.

Another curiosity a little strange and funny is the presence of dangerous geese described as their worst nightmare. This because they are indeed extremely rude and aggressive creatures. They throw themselves into a rage towards the unfortunate. Meeting them in flight then, while migrating, is not a pleasant thing, in fact, they are responsible for several “Bird strikes” that damage aircraft engines.

Canadians even make fun of themselves for this, in fact it is also born a very funny meme…

Another interesting curiosity is about the sovereign of Canada that is Queen Elizabeth II. Canada is, in fact, still part of the British Commonwealth and recognizes the Queen of England as Head of State. So don’t be surprised if you see the face of Queen Elizabeth on the coins.

Also, in Canada there are numerous special activities such as edge walk that you can do from the tower of Toronto. You get the most amazing view, and even though the entire experience is expensive, you get some amazing photos of the enter experience. You honestly feel very safe and secure the entire time, and the rush of adrenaline is fantastic. It really is a once in a lifetime experience!
