If you’re planning on sightseeing in Vancouver then these 30 activities will keep you busy for days. How often have you had visitors and wondered what in the world you were going to do with them short of sitting staring at each other across the living room??
Hiking the Auriol Trail in Yukon’s Kluane National Park is a must if you’re in the area. There aren’t many accessible hikes in the park that offer what this one does – superb sub-alpine and alpine scenery within 8 kilometres of the start of the trail.
Newfoundland is a phenomenal province to visit for outdoor adventures. Not only is the scenery exceptional, especially along the coast and in Gros Morne National Park, but the people are so friendly and welcoming that they are reason enough to go. Over a couple of summers, I have spent almost a month in Newfoundland.
Prince Edward Island (PEI) is Canada’s smallest province, measuring only 220 km (137 mi) long by 64 km (40 mi) at its widest. It’s a great cycling destination for people who like quiet back roads and little in the way of hills.
One of Nova Scotia’s great day hikes has got to be the hike to Cape Split, just a 40 minute drive from Wolfville. It’s not a knock your socks off kind of hike – that is until you get to the end of the trail. And then the views will literally take your breath away.
New Brunswick’s Fundy National Park is located on the Bay of Fundy, home to the world’s highest tides. Easy access is via the pretty town of Alma, literally just minutes from the park gates at the east entrance.
Pink Lake in Gatineau Park, located less than a half hour drive from downtown Ottawa, is not what you think it might be. First off, the only thing pink about it are the colourful visitors ambling around the lake on the Pink Lake Trail. The Pink part relates to the name of the family that settled nearby and “loaned” their name to the lake.

1,900 square kilometres in the western part of the province
If you can find the Great Sand Hills in Saskatchewan you’re in for a treat! Despite the fact they cover 1,900 square kilometres in the western part of the province, rather a large chunk of real estate if you ask me, they are difficult to find. Signage is next to non-existent until you’re within spitting distance of the dunes. But don’t let that deter you.
