If you’re looking to enjoy the great outdoors on adventure activity holidays, Canada is an excellent choice of destination. The country’s sensational landscape is just made for active pursuits and the Canadians certainly make the most of their abundant natural treasures.
Whether you’re looking to work on existing skills or gain some brand new ones, Canada opens up an entire world of possibilities. Here are just a few experiences you might want to consider on the itinerary of your activity holidays.
Soak Up the Culture and Nature of Vancouver
If you’re bringing your family, Canada couldn’t be more inviting – offering a wonderful blend of culture and nature. Fly into cosmopolitan Vancouver and spend a couple of days exploring, museum hopping, shopping and, of course, eating! Then, once you’re ready to get out and actually get active on your activity holidays, you can discover the delights of sea kayaking at Jericho Beach or English Harbour. Don’t worry, if you’ve never tried it before you’ll have an expert guide to show you the ropes. You could also try stand up paddle boarding and, most thrilling of all, take a boat trip to go whale watching, in search of the majestic Orca.
To enjoy the city from a different vantage, pay a visit to the Capilano Suspension Bridge, which is just a few minutes from the centre of the city. To round out your experience, treat yourself to a ride on the amazing Grouse Mountain Skyride, which is North America’s largest aerial tramway, providing jaw-dropping views across the city, snow-capped mountain peaks and out to the ocean.
A Wonderful Wilderness Adventure
Once you’ve enjoyed Vancouver, it’s time to discover the true wilderness regions of Canada at spectacular Nimmo Bay. Only accessible by air or water, arriving at this breath-taking destination by helicopter is a true once-in-a-lifetime experience not to be missed. You’ll stay in floating hydroelectric powered cabins, which only enhance the sense of utter isolation of this magnificent area. Where else in the world could you go paddle boarding with porpoises and see bears in the wild?
A truly fulfilling destination for activity holidays – combining the beauty of the landscape with the excitement of its cities – this is the Canada you’ll really want to see.
