Trips in Canada

Trips in Canada are among the best in the world. As the second largest country on the planet, Canada is so large, and the weather so diverse that the range of experiences that can be had are second to none. If you plan it right, any travel in Canada can be made to include a wildlife tour and or a nature tour. Let’s start trip on the west coast and work our way to the east coast.

Surfing in BC

It is counter intuitive but indeed BC has great surfing on its Pacific beaches. Tofino beach on Vancouver Island is probably one of the best places in Canada to hone your skills at this great sport. If the surf is not up in Tofino make your way over to Ucluelet to try your luck — or the Pacific Rim National Park, Long Beach or Clayoquot. For all you surfer Dudes and Dudettes next time you travel in Canada don’t miss the surfing trip in British Columbia.

Glacier Skywalk in Alberta

While in the Canadian Rocky Mountains find time to make a trip to this spectacular lookout over the Columbia Icefield and the Athabasca Glacier. The Columbia Icefield is the largest glacier that remains from our planet’s last ice age, and from it spills the majestic Athabasca Glacier in all its splendor. Standing on the Skywalk, almost 1,000 feet above the Sunwapta Valley below, you will experience the power and beauty of the planet we live on, as you gaze out on some of Mother Nature’s most spectacular views. Don’t miss this trip of a lifetime.

Aurora Borealis from Yellowknife

You don’t need to trip to Sweden nor Norway to get the best view of the Northern Lights when you travel in Canada. August is the best time to see these lights because the nights are clear and the land is flat. Watch the Milky Way dance in front of your eyes and let your mind wander as you ponder the expanse of our universe. Is there life out there? Definitely!

Churchill, Manitoba, Canada

Since we are in the Canadian north head over to Churchill, Manitoba, famous for its polar bear and beluga whale watching excursions — guaranteed to be a wildlife trip of a lifetime. As you may or may not know, the Polar Bear is on the endangered species list, and there may only be a short time left to experience this magnificent beast. While on your trip to Churchill take advantage of the best bird watching on the planet, do some adventure hiking and kayaking, and visit the local museums for an interesting peek into the history of the fur trade in Canada and the world.

The Toronto International Film Festival

Second only to Cannes, every year Toronto host one of the film industry’s most prestigious film festivals in the world. Many of the year’s Oscar hopefuls are debuted at this festival, and you’re sure to be star struck if you hang out in the right places. One of the best holidays to Canada, make sure you book 6 months in advance to ensure you get a place close to the action. Renting one of the many Canadian vacation rentals direct from the owner is a great way to cut down on expenses for this vacation to Canada.

The Montreal International Jazz Festival

For 10 days in June and July Montreal hosts one of the best Jazz festivals in the world. Even though it is titled a jazz festival, all types of music are showcased — electronica, blues, reggae, Latin and many others can be heard throughout the clubs and streets of this beautiful city. Take advantage of the many free shows out in the open air, or book a ticket to some of the big name acts that are always present. This is one of the coolest trips in Canada you can take.

Old Quebec City

Visit the only walled city in North America north of Mexico. Old Quebec City is one of the oldest cities in North America and boasts the oldest shopping street on the continent. With its bistros, open air cafes and street buskers, you’ll think you are in a 17thcentury French city, complete with a magnificent view of the mighty St. Lawrence and the majestic Laurentian mountains.
