Canada is really big, and extremely beautiful. With so much to see and do, there is something for everyone. For those longing for adventure after what felt like a lifetime in lockdown, you don’t have to travel across the world to find it. There are many destinations to choose from, right here in Canada. In this article we’re going to be covering 7 incredible destinations for adventures across Canada.
Walk on the Ocean Floor in The Bay of Fundy
The Bay of Fundy has the highest tides in the world, and at Hopewell Cape, New Brunswick, you can experience this phenomenon yourself. Two times a day at Hopewell Cape, the tides rise and fall roughly 40 feet. When the tides are out, you can walk on the exposed ocean floor near the shore.
You can also see the beautiful, and ever changing rock towers, which are iconic in their own right. With names like “dinosaur rock, elephant rock, lover’s arch and Castle rock, each formation has been carved by the wind and sea over thousands of years.
Wear Sunglasses at Night as you Drive the Dempster Highway
Stretching from the Arctic in Inuvik, Northwest Territories, to Dawson City, Yukon, the 736 km road is the ultimate road trip. In the summer, there is an average of 56 days of constant sunlight, meaning that you can drive this stretch of road at night, and you’ll need your sunglasses. This highway is also drive-able in the winter.
Checkout Canada’s Fjord and Stay in the Trees
A one hour flight from Montreal, or a two-hour drive from Quebec, Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean boasts tree houses, biking trials, beautiful wildlife, and the longest Fjord in the world. It is also the only Fjord in North America to be inhabited on both shores.
You can kayak the Fjord, and book your own treehouse or suspended sphere at Cap St. Jaseux.
Go Ice Climbing
One of the top three spots on earth to ice climb for professionals, but it is also suitable for amateurs, Canmore, Alberta attracts ice climbers from around the world. Ice climbing in Canmore means climbing frozen waterfalls in the Rocky Mountains. Enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime experience and breathtaking views at the same time.
Whistler BC, which is known for its skiing and snowboarding is also a prime spot for anyone wanting to bobsled. The track is the fastest bobsledding track in the world, and bobsleds can reach speeds of 125 km an hour. Don’t worry though, a pro-athlete will be in the sled with you. All you have to do is sit back and enjoy the rush.
Kayak with Beluga Whales
During the summer, thousands of beluga whales migrate through Hudson Bay, to the channel at Churchill, Manitoba. This makes it an incredible kayaking spot in the summer, as you are sure to get up close to some belugas. Belugas are known to be curious and playful, and have bumped boats, and rubbed their noses on your hull. Reportedly, the more you sing and buddle, the more belugas will come over and say hello! Suggest tune: Baby Beluga by Raffi of course!
Cross the Arctic Circle on Foot
Augustus National Park is one of the four national parks in Nunavut, and the most accessible one. The park offers an 8-12 day backpacking trip that takes you across snow, ice, rock, and the Arctic Circle. Following the glacial streams and rivers, you’ll see boulders the size of trucks, and the sheer rock face of Mt. Thor, which rises 1,675 metres. Spectacular Summit Lake is usually the highlight of the tip, as it boasts the largest vertical face on the planet.
