In honor of Canada's 150th birthday, Delta is offering terrific fares to several Canadian airports, including Toronto, Montreal, Calgary and Vancouver. Many of the country's most amazing destinations are within easy (enough) access, which means it's time to take advantage of the brief, wondrous Canadian summer before it (and the Delta fare sale) conclude. 

Here are our picks for the best destinations.

LAKE LOUISE
You've seen the uncannily blue waters of Lake Louise in a million Instagram photos. It's as beautiful as it looks — and worth summertime crowds for summertime temps.
Nearest airport: Calgary
Distance: 87 miles

PARC NATIONAL DU MONT-TREMBLANT
Kayakers will want to make a beeline for this park criss-crossed by six rivers and 400 lakes; everyone else might want to head skyward — to the park's via ferrata path. 
Nearest airport: Montreal
Distance: 63 miles 

HORSESHOE FALLS
The cluster of three waterfalls at Niagara is viewed as tourist kitsch sometimes, but the fact is, they're absolutely beautiful — and well worth the drive from Toronto. 
Nearest airport: Toronto
Distance: 81 miles

FATHOM FIVE NATIONAL MARINE PARK
This freshwater marine park presents a smorgasbord for divers — it's filled with the remains of turn-of-the-century schooners, with nearly two dozen wrecks in all. 
Nearest airport: Toronto
Distance: 171 miles

MONTREAL BAR-HOPPING
Like Paris without the attitude, Montreal offers a master class in laidback loafing. We say start with smoked meat at Schwartz's — an appropriate way to kick off the night for any newbie — and then follow the crowd. 
Nearest airport: Montreal
Distance: 14 miles

BANFF HOT SPRINGS
One hundred percent natural hot spring water is currently flowing at Banff's Upper Hot Springs, where visitors have been taking the waters for over a century. At under ten bucks an entrance, these calming pools, set in gorgeous surroundings, may be the best deal in the country. 
Nearest airport: Calgary
Distance: 80 miles

PARC NATIONAL DE LA GASPESIE
Go for a hike in this incredible sub-arctic wilderness, with herds of caribou and other northern animals making their home on the tundra. There's also kayaking, canoeing, salmon fishing and even stand-up paddling. 
Nearest airport: Montreal
Distance: 477 miles

STANLEY PARK
You don't even need to leave Vancouver to get outside in Stanley Park, a regular feature on World's Best Park lists thanks to features like 12 miles of hiking paths, heated outdoor pools, picnic spots and more. Bonus: All of the city's top-notch restaurants, hotels and shops are still within easy reach. 
Nearest airport: Vancouver
Distance: 9 miles
