Amazing Adventures Awaiting you in Canada

Canada is one of the best countries for adventure in the world, and no matter what your taste, style or activity interest, there are always a variety of opportunities tailored to beginner tourists. Let’s take a look at some of the most exciting activity adventures to undertake in Canada this year!

Killer Whale Watching

If you enjoy the marvels of underwater marine life, then you’re going to love killer whale watching. During August, waves of salmon line Canada’s west coast to breed, making a great location for killer whales to feed. Jump on board one of the local tourist tour boats, and watch as the spectacular orcas feed on the jump salmon, and remember to bring your camera too!

One of the best ways to see the so called ‘killer’ whales is to get up close with a kayak. The orcas are only interested in the salmon, and with over 250 of them feeding along the coastline at the same time, it’s a really intimate way to experience the wonders of marine wildlife at its most simple.

Once the killer whales have finished feeding, they spend their time relaxing down by the Robson Bight pebble beach. Not only do they bask in the moonlight here, but they also rub their bellies along the pebbles, and according to scientists, this is the only place in the world where this happens! There are also opportunities to see minke whales, as well as bald eagles, Dall’s porpoises and Steller sea lions during feeding time too.

Ski Whistler

One of the best known skiing resorts in the world, and certainly the best in North America, the Whistler-Blackcomb ski resort was the home of the 2010 Olympic Winter Games. Not only does offer the highest vertical drop of any resort in the continent, but it also has over 200 trails that are longer than their European counterparts.

Vancouver Island Storm Watch

Vancouver is a stunning city, however each winter it becomes a battle ground for nature’s worst weather. The west coast of Vancouver island is the best seat in the house to see these amazing storms coming together, and with nothing but thousands of miles of ocean separating the coast from Japan, you’ll be able to catch exciting glimpses of rapid winds, mountainous waves, and roars of thunder that echo for miles around.

To experience the storm’s full force, take a stroll down the beach on the Wild Pacific Trail, and make sure you visit autoeurope.ca if you’re looking to hire a car on your storm watch.

The Trans Canada Trail

If you’ve ever heard of the Trans Canada Trail, then you’ll know that it’s pretty close to becoming the world’s longest walking path! Don’t fret about fitting it all into one holiday however, because it would certainly take a few years to complete the distance.

Covering over 21,000km and starting in North America’s most eastern point, tourists can even hire mountain bikes to help them see more of the beautiful landscape. Even if you walked 30km every day for a year, it would still take nearly two years to finish!
