What Makes Canada Unique as an Adventure Holiday Destination

The Niagara Falls

On the US-Canadian border, the Niagara Falls is arguably one of the most impressive natural sights in the world. Easily accessed from Toronto, adventure seekers can take a Hornblower Niagara Cruise which departs every 15 minute. This option takes visitors up close and personal to the falls. The roar of the waterfall and feeling of the mist on your face is a thrill that only a natural wonder can create; furthermore, the experience is a definite must for any adventure seekers heading to Canada. Those wanting to admire from a distance can get a great view of the falls from the Niagara Parkway.

The Canadian Rockies

Spanning Alberta and British Columbia, the Canadian Rockies stand proud. It is the go to mountain region for adventure seekers. Home to incredible scenery, snow-capped mountains, and turquoise lakes. The vast wilderness is just waiting to be explored. The mountain range is home to a number of National Parks including Jasper National Park. This park receives less visitors and is home to the Wilcox Pass Trail hike. Probably the best way to see wildlife and get a sense of what it’s really like to be at one with nature, at the same time keep one away from the hustle of everyday life.


Adventure seekers wanting to do some extreme sports on their holiday are in luck. Whistler is one of the best ski resorts in world. With an exceptional season of guaranteed powder from November through May; therefor, it’s a certainty for some great skiing and winter sports. The area boasts over 8,000 acres of pistes to challenge yourself on.

Mount Logan

The highest mountain in Canada is located in the Yukon region. Travelers will find a treasure trove of opportunities for Canada unique outdoor experiences. One can enjoy kayaking and boat trips along the rivers, cycling, hiking routes and ice climbing. Whatever method of exploring best suits you, there’s opportunities for all to enjoy the natural beauty of this area of Canada. You can even go on an expedition to spot Grizzly Bears at the springs of Bear Cave Mountain.
