Five activities to enjoy on an adventure holiday in Canada

A holiday in Canada promises an adventure enthusiast an array of thrilling experiences amidst breathtaking landscapes.


Cycling enthusiasts can revel in the extensive network of cycling trails that crisscross the country. Start with a visit to Granville Island where the vibrant art scene and charming markets set the stage for a bike ride around Stanley Park, passing by totem poles that share the stories of indigenous cultures. Pedal through rainforest trails, where colossal trees create a canopy overhead and the air is filled with the earthy scent of wilderness. Thrill-seekers can't miss the exhilarating downhill cycling in Whistler, where the rugged terrain and alpine vistas create a truly unforgettable cycling adventure holiday.


A walking holiday in Canada offers the incredible opportunity to traverse the iconic Rockies, a mountain range renowned for its majestic peaks and pristine wilderness. Venture into the heart of nature by hiking in the stunning National Parks of Banff, Jasper and Yoho, where cascading waterfalls, turquoise lakes and rugged mountain trails await discovery. For those seeking a hidden gem on their Canadian adventure holiday, Kananaskis Country offers a lesser-known, yet equally spectacular, hiking paradise. Don't miss the chance to hike the Plain of the Six Glaciers, a trail that rewards with breathtaking views of icy wonders.

Rafting and canoeing

For waterborne adventurers, Canada presents a thrilling combination of white-water rafting and canoeing experiences. Navigate the roaring rapids of Yoho National Park during a heart-pounding Canadian white-water rafting adventure. Paddle serenely across the crystal clear waters of Clearwater Lake in a canoe, taking in the serene beauty of the surrounding landscape. Stand-up paddle boarding is also incredibly popular and offers another way to discover the beauty of Canada.


Nestled amidst sensational Canadian scenery, campgrounds provide an opportunity to immerse yourself in the natural world. Under clear night skies, campers can revel in stargazing sessions that reveal the wonders of the universe. Canadian camp sites, often surrounded by lush forests, feature pitches equipped with picnic benches, barbeques and fire pits, creating an inviting atmosphere and the perfect set up for a cosy night under the stars. 

Wildlife watching

Wildlife enthusiasts are in for a treat as Canada's diverse ecosystems teem with fascinating creatures. Keep a keen eye out for beady-eyed bald eagles soaring overhead. Along the shores, the opportunity to spot moose and even bears adds a thrilling edge to any outdoor adventure. For a more educational wildlife adventure holiday encounter, visit the Wolf Sanctuary in Yoho National Park where you can observe these magnificent creatures up close and gain insights into their behaviour and conservation.
