Toronto above clouds

This is what Toronto looks like from above the clouds

Toronto rising above the clouds is one of the most stunning views of the city. Typically you need to get lucky flying into Pearson to spot such a sight (you're already too low coming into the Island Airport), but some of our intrepid rooftoppers have also been treated to these views.

Unsurprisingly, the CN Tower often serves as the focal point in these photos. In fact, there's a sub-genre of photos featuring just the tower poking through the cloud line. Be it on account of low-lying fog or thicker clouds, we've been treated to some absolutely stunning views of the skyline just popping out above its aerial blanket over the years.

Here the city appears as the end of the world and iconic Toronto all at once. You know where you are, but based on only the most iconic of coordinates. So try not to snooze on those early morning flights across the skyline. The next mind-boggling shot of Toronto engulfed in clouds might be waiting for you.
