Explore these 7 UNBELIEVABLE Natural Wonders While You Are in North America

Authored By Jean-Francois Brouillette

North America is a beautiful continent that deserves to be explored; and not just its cities and nightclubs. During your exchange in Montreal make time to explore some of the beautiful natural wonders in Canada and the United States. Here are 7 natural wonders you should start exploring while you’re on exchange in Montreal.

1.) GRAND CANYON

Founded on 26 February 1919, the Grand Canyon is roughly 4,926 KM2 in size. Discover the layered bands of red rock from millions of years of erosion. During your time in the Grand Canyon visit Desert View Watchtower, Mather Point. Experience the Grand Canyon on our Californication trip this May.

 

2.) NIAGARA FALLS

Feel the mist and hear the roar of the water as over four million cubic feet of water rushes over the edge and falls 167 ft to the rocks below. Ride the Maid of the Mist to get a closer look, or discover Niagara Falls from a slightly more intimate angle by doing Journey Behind the Falls. Experience Niagara Falls on our Amazing Race to Chicago trip.

 

3.) ZION CANYON

Located in the State of Utah, Zion Canyon is at the top of every nature lovers bucket list. Gear up, and explore the many caves found in the canyon. You will need a permit to go canyoneering, so be sure to apply three months before your trip.

 

4.) EVERGLADES NATIONAL PARK

Everglades National Park covers 1.5 million acres of Southern Florida, making it the largest tropical wetland in North America - and one of the few places in the world where alligators and crocodiles live in the same body of water. Visit for a day, or be a little more daring and camp in the backcountry. Experience the Everglades on our I'm in Miami Beach trip.

 

5.) REDWOOD FOREST

A forest filled with trees that are so huge, a car could drive through them: this is what awaits you at the Redwood Forest in California. Take a tour, or explore on your own and admire the majesty and beauty of the tallest trees in the world. Yes, the world!

 

6.) YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK

Spread across sections of Montana and Idaho, Yellowstone National Park is known for its stunning canyons, hot springs, and ancient geysers like Old Faithful. Go for hikes, and wander the walkways. Be sure to stay on the walkways though as the hot springs are not for soaking in, and the ecosystem that exists beyond the walkways is delicate.

 

7.) DENALI NATIONAL PARK

Home to the tallest peak in North America, Mount McKinley, Alaska's Denali National Park was founded on February 26th, 1917. There you can experience a mixture of tundra, spruce forests, and glaciers. Go hiking, go camping, just remember that grizzly bears are not your friends, so don't try to feed them!
