Adventure Holidays in Canada

Boats on a lake with reflection of mountain

There’s no doubt that Canada is an adventurers paradise! With the majority of Canada’s population living near the US border, there is a lot of the country that’s pure wilderness to explore. From bear watching to canoeing, white water rafting to glacier hiking, no matter what kind of action you’re into, we’ve got it covered!

On the Water: Kayaks, Canoes & Paddleboards

Light Adventure – Canoeing & Camping

If you’re after a fairly light adventure, how does Canoeing on tranquil lakes, spotting seals and other wildlife in Wells Gray Provincial Park sound? After your day on the water, you’ll be camping under the stars which will get you back to basics and end your gentle adventure in the wilderness.

Moderate Adventure – Kayaking with Orcas

Looking for a step up, but not too big of a step? Then how does Kayaking with Orcas in Port McNeill sound? You’ll spend the day surrounded by mountains, spotting Orcas and camping in the wilderness surrounded by the peaks in the distance – pure bliss!

Moderate Adventure – Paddleboarding in Sun Peaks

Sun Peaks is an alpine village set in the heart of British Columbia, an outdoor adventurer’s dream with plenty of on and off-land activities on offer.  We have two activities available, for the water babies enjoy a spot of standup paddleboarding, also known as supping.  It’s a wonderful way to explore the calming lakes of Canada, observing wildlife at the water’s edge.  For those keen to explore on two wheels opt for a mountain bike experience weaving in and out of forest and meadows.

On Land: Hikes, Bikes & Horses

Light Adventure – Horse Riding

Back to Wells Gray Park in the Cariboo Mountains, but this time we’re very much taking it easy. Budding Cowboys & Cowgirls, it’s your time to shine! Roll through the Canadian countryside whilst on horseback, taking your time rambling through this stunning country before having a barbeque in the sunshine.

For bike-lovers, be prepared for a real treat. Sun Peaks has some of the finest mountain biking trails and bike paths in all of Canada (you’ve got to see it to believe it!). It’s a stunning wonderland of forests, lakes and rolling hills. No matter your skill level, you’ll find a trail that suits your handiness with your bike!

Extreme – Hike a Glacier

Looking for a frosty adventure? Why not tackle the Athabasca glacier in the famous Icefields Parkway range, not only is it stunningly beautiful, you’ll also have the chance to have a guided hike and learn all about them from the experts. Get your gloves and layers on for this one!
