Everyone has heard about the seven wonders of the world, but it's rare to find someone who can actually name them all. That's becuase it's easy to forget about them, since they don't exist anymore. (all except the pyramid at Giza)
In case you're curious the original seven wonders were: The Great Pyramid of Giza, the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, the Statue of Zeus at Olympia, the Temple of Artemis at Ephesus, the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus, the Colossus of Rhodes and the Lighthouse of Alexandria.
These days, there are still some wonders that exist all around us. That's why a few years back, CBC tried to figure out whist the 7 wonders of Canada were but their list was pretty terrible.
To give you an idea, #1 on the list was a Canoe. and I'm not talking about some kind of record setting giant canoe, or and ancient piece of Canada's history. They literally juts meant the invention of the canoe.
That's why they asked Canadians to vote for their own list of wonders:
1. Sleeping Giant
A formation which resembles a giant lying on its back.

Become one with nature and visit these 7 Canadian wonders.
One of the coolest places you've never heard of in Ontario. If you haven't been here already you have to go to see this unique landscape. These badlands used to be occupied by a river, and thousands of years ago it dried up to reveal the dry, rocky climate of the badlands that we see today.
Seriously, the coolest hotel in Canada! You can spend a night in spheres suspended way up in the trees. They offer some amazing excursions as well, such as ziplining, sea kayaking, nature tours, and exploring lake caves.
Home to over 400 wild horses, Sable Island is one of the coolest places Canada has to offer. It's shaped like a string bean and also holds the largest colony of grey seals. With such an abundance of nature and history this is one Canadian spot you won't want to miss out on.
