The second largest country on the planet but ranking a mere 37th in population, Canada is a nation defined by its geography. Canada is all you imagine, and much you never expect. Here stretch old-growth forests studded with pristine lakes, endless prairies and the rugged arctic where animals outnumber humans; here one can hike or ski into glacial mountains that stretch to infinity and never meet a living soul. But behind the natural stereotype Canada is young, modern and sophisticated, with cities that have absorbed the best of the myriad cultures that make up one of the most vibrant multicultural societies on earth.
