Canada's cities are a stark contrast to the wilderness that abounds throughout the country. Montreal, is the country's sparkling metropolis, while Vancouver is a multicultural gem is a city rich in culture and Toronto is a cosmopolitan destination with an extraordinary food scene. Most Canadians live within 200 miles of the American border, and 75% of them live in cities. However, the wilderness is never far away. Beyond the cities lies an achingly beautiful landscape with rugged coastline, endless tundra, and soaring peaks.
