Canada, or “The Great North”, is a breathtaking, welcoming and fascinating land. This makes it a wonderful adventure holiday destination, with an incredible amount to offer any visitor. Whether you are looking to soak up culture in busy cities or head out into the wilderness – Canada is up there as one of the best places to do this. In fact, for those seeking adventure, they may find a holiday here more rewarding than a trip to the United States.
Whilst there is a lot to be said for an adventure holiday to the USA thanks to such a diverse landscape, it is Canada that edges the competition in several areas.
The scenery and natural surroundings in Canada are truly awe-inspiring. Emerald lakes, lush forests, dramatic snow-topped mountains can be found all in one location; this creates a sublime and picture-perfect setting. Canada also has this astonishing scenery covering a huge percentage of its land. British Columbia, Niagara Falls, National Park’s and the wilderness are a just a few highlights and all waiting to be explored.
With such an incredible natural playground, it is not surprising that outdoor adventure activities are hugely popular and everywhere that you turn. On a trip to Canada, expect white water rafting, canoeing, hiking, horse riding, whale watching and plenty of winter sport opportunities in famous areas like Whistler.
With so much nature surrounding and wild space around you, it is inevitable that Canada is bursting with incredible wildlife. A small selection of this includes bears, bison, wolves, beavers, coyotes, moose, mountain lion and various other animals. Whilst it is true that many of these can be seen in the USA, Canada is well known for being home to many large animals that are comfortable in the North, including polar bears.
In addition to the superb natural beauty and everything that this provides, Canada is also home to a handful of magnificent cities. Many of these are just as impressive as the major US cities, but in Canada you will also find an incredibly friendly, welcoming and relaxed atmosphere throughout the land. This includes Vancouver (often voted the best place to live), Toronto and the European-esque Montreal and Quebec. When you book your adventure holiday with reputable organisers, like TrekAmerica, you can experience these great cities as well as the outstanding beauty.
It is for these reasons that Canada is a fantastic destination for an adventure holiday and you are sure to be amazed at what you will see.
