When it comes to taking in the changing autumn leaves across Canada, there are a few factors to keep in mind. Plan ahead for late September or early October, which is when most parks have their brightest fall colours. Also, consider your preferred mode of “leaf peeping” before you make a cross-country trip. Are you taking a scenic drive, hiking, or riding on horseback? Once you’ve decided, look through our gallery for the best leaf-viewing spots in Canada.
The Laurentian Mountains
Featured in Lonely Planet and National Geographic, the Laurentian Mountains are world renowned. Head to Mont-Tremblant National Park in late September to view the spectacular colours. For the really keen, the Quebec government even has a Fall Foliage Map you can use to keep track of the entire province’s leaves.
