If ever a place seemed like it was created exclusively for adventure, it’s Canada. This vast country is nature’s playground. It doesn’t matter where you happen to find yourself between the Pacific and Atlantic coasts, the great outdoors is king. Spine tingling wildlife encounters are a way of life here. One minute you’re wandering along a beach and the next, a whale breaches just off shore; later, a bear and her cubs cause a traffic jam as they amble across the road. Holidays in Canada are made up of many remarkable moments like these.
Even in the cities, the natural world is never too far away. Vancouver is surrounded on three sides by water and the North Shore Mountains provide a year-round place to play, while Calgary sits in the shadow of the Front Range of the iconic Rocky Mountains; Toronto overlooks the vast Ontario Lake and to the north there’s the network of lakes and water ways that make up the Muskoka region; and Montréal and Québec City both sit on the bank of the St Lawrence River. However, these cities don’t just rely on their landscapes to draw in the crowds. Hardly a day goes by without some kind of festival taking place, from Calgary’s thrilling world-famous Stampede to a celebration of all things snow and ice at Winterlude in the nation’s capital, Ottawa.
