10 of the Most Beautiful Villages in Canada - Village 1

When most people think of Canada, they imagine its cosmopolitan capitals like Vancouver and Montreal, or its iconic natural attractions like Niagara Falls and Whistler; however, Canada’s tiny villages and villages are often-overlooked sources of the country’s most unique scenery and richest traditions. From the charming seaside communities of the east coast, to the historic villages of rural Quebec, here is the first of ten of the most beautiful villages in Canada.

Frelighsburg

Ranked among Quebec’s most beautiful villages, Frelighsburg is set in a gorgeous location at the foot of Mount Pinnacle, on the banks of the Pike River. Located near the Vermont border, the village was settled in the late 18th century by American Loyalists. Many buildings from this period, which blend brick and wood materials, are still standing today. Highlights include an early 20th-century convent, and a mill dating back to 1839. The surrounding valley is a flourishing apple-growing region, with numerous cider-houses and orchards dotted across the countryside.
