By Stuart Hughes

Nowhere in the world can transport you back into the untamed wilderness quite like visiting Canada. With an abundance of top Canadian landscape photography locations to choose from, we’ve taken the initiative to compile a list of our top five spots where you can shoot the perfect Canadian landscape photo. 

From capturing images of the awe-inspiring might of Niagara Falls to the iconic Instagram-esq turquoise waters of Moraine Lake, framed by its superb mountain surroundings. If you’re seeking inspirational landscape photography locations that deserve to be immortalized on canvas, then travel with us into the magnificent Canadian backcountry. 

Tofino, Vancouver Island, British Columbia 

Our first top Canadian landscape photography locations won’t surprise anyone who’s visited Tofino on Vancouver Island, British Columbia before. Situated on the Pacific West Coast of Canada, Tofino offers you the chance to capture amazing photos of the vibrant Pacific Ocean sunsets and vast sandy beaches without the need for a camera filter. 

Nestled along the shores of the Pacific Rim National Park Reserve, this enchanting landscape photography location boasts numerous beaches and bays, offering abundant opportunities to capture that perfect shot. You can visit picturesque areas like Long Beach, where you can seize the perfect photo of the crashing waves and dramatic coastline. Alternatively, you can explore Cox Bay Beach to capture stunning imagery of surfers surfing in the midst of the rugged coastal surroundings. 

With year-round photography opportunities, enhance your trip to Tofino, British Columbia, when you stay at the serene Best Western Plus Tin Wis Resort. 

Moraine Lake, Alberta 

Moraine Lake in Alberta has been described as the most photogenic lake in the world – it’s not surprising given the raw natural beauty on display. Surrounded by ice-capped mountain vistas reflecting off the calm turquoise-blue water, it’s no wonder it’s earned a reputation for being one of the best locations in Canada to take phenomenal landscape images.

Whether you’re an amateur photographer or a seasoned pro, the surrounding shores of Moraine Lake offer countless places to photograph these panoramic views. On the north shore of this mesmerizing lake lies a natural formation called the ‘The Rockpile,’ a popular romantic hotspot for wedding proposals. Coincidently, Moraine Lake is also considered one of the top Canadian landscape photography locations for newlyweds to snap that picture-perfect wedding photo backdrop. 

Discover this incredible landscape photography destination and relax at the tranquil Best Western Plus Siding 29 Lodge in Banff, Alberta, after every day’s adventure. 

Bruce Peninsula, Ontario 

We head to Ontario next and the Bruce Peninsula, where you’ll be treated to a diverse range of geographical features, which all make fantastic landscape photo opportunities. Primarily because the Bruce Peninsula sits between Lake Huron and Georgian Bay, it benefits from remarkable natural water formations – take photos that make gorgeous canvas prints 

As one of our top Canadian landscape photography locations, you must head to The Grotto. Due to thousands of years of erosion, this breathtaking limestone cave has been carved into the cliffs and is framed perfectly by the crystal-clear waters below. Similarly, Indian Head Cove makes an ideal setting to capture the perfect shot of the treelined cliffs that overlook this dazzling bay of turquoise water. 

You can spend days exploring the scores of landscape photo opportunities at the Bruce Peninsula, and you can rest assured you’ll sleep well at the Best Western Inn On The Bay in Owen Sound, Ontario. 

Niagara Falls, Ontario 

Remaining in Ontario, our next port of call was probably the first destination you thought of when you imagined your top Canadian landscape photography locations. You can picture it now – the world-famous Niagara Falls and its inspiring landscape imagery. First photographed by Hugh Pattinson in 1840, this spectacular attraction has been drawing in photography enthusiasts ever since. 

Of course, you can use camera filters for the perfect selfie in front of the falls or board the Maid of the Mist to photograph the Horseshoe Falls from below. However, for those seeking an ideal photo of the Niagara landscape, head to the Skylon Tower for the ultimate panoramic shot. Most notably at night when the falls are illuminated to create an aquatic masterpiece across the cascading waters. 

Wander around the majestic Niagara Parkway before reviewing your daily snaps, and get a cozy night’s sleep at the delightful Niagara Riverside Resort, BW Premier Collection in Niagara Falls, New York. 

Bay of Fundy, New Brunswick 

Our final spot on our shortlist of the top Canadian landscape photography locations is in New Brunswick, on the bountiful shores of the Bay of Fundy. With its numerous attractions and natural formations, the Bay of Fundy is tailor-made for capturing jaw-dropping landscape photography attractions. 

For fans of lighthouse photography, the Cape Enrage Lighthouse provides a captivating array of landscape shot perspectives to explore. The unique formations at Hopewell Rocks are a must-see for anyone visiting the Bay of Fundy. Formed by the erosion of the extreme incoming and outgoing tides, these extraordinary rock formations are among North America’s most frequently captured natural landscape photographs. 

Enjoy a fascinating escape that uncovers the natural beauty of the Bay of Fundy, followed by a peaceful night’s rest every night at the comfy Best Western Plus Saint John Hotel & Suites in Saint John, New Brunswick.
