10 spots across Canada for the most beautiful sunset

Canada is home to some incredible sunsets. Whether the sun is setting over a stretch of open beach or peeking through towering mountains, the golden hues are sure to impress.

Here are some places in Canada to catch a beautiful sunset.

Fjord du Saguenay, Quebec

The Fjord du Saquenay National Park is the perfect spot for catching the sunset. The beauty of the steeping fjords silhouetted by the breathtaking backdrop of the golden sky is certainly tough to beat. 

Banff, Alberta 

Banff National Park is full of breathtaking scenery, with its snow-covered peaks and miles and miles of thick pine trees. The pink hues from the sun setting after a long day of outdoor adventures only adds to the majestic views. 

Muskoka, Ontario

This beautiful cottage country's golden sunsets are best enjoyed from a Muskoka chair or a dock on the lake. The sun over the water makes it look even more enticing for a dip.

Peggy’s Cove, Nova Scotia 

It's likely that this town, home to one of the most famous lighthouses around, is already top on your travel bucket list. Its incredible sunset will give you even more reason to visit. 

Victoria, B.C.

Whether you watch from one of the beautiful beaches across the island or the city's harbour, prepare for a spectacular show. The sunsets here are stunning. 

Grand Bend, Ontario  

The impressive sunsets in this little beach town are known as some of the best in the world. The colourful hues over Lake Huron and the 50-km stretch of white sandy beach will take your breath away. 

Gros Morne, Newfoundland and Labrador  

The sun's rays peeking through the towering fjords at Gros Morne National Park is a sight to behold. The shimmering sun illuminates the vibrant emerald green of the mountains as far as the eye can see. 

Tofino, B.C.  

You probably know of Tofino for being a favourite spot among surfers, due to its beaches offering up the perfect wave. But the sunsets aren't bad here either. Once the sun begins to descend, it covers the stretches of beach in a mesmerizing pink hue. 

Cape Breton, Nova Scotia 

It probably won't come as a surprise that Cape Breton's mountainous landscape offers up incredible sunsets. There are countless beaches along the rugged northern shore for optimal viewing. As well as many trails, one of the most famous being the Skyline Trail.  

Tombstone Territorial Park, Yukon

The rugged terrain of the Tombstone Territorial Park is best suited for those looking to truly get off the grid. There's no doubt that you'll need to post a shot of that incredible sunset once you get cell service though.
