YOU KNOW YOU’RE IN AD­VEN­TURE HEAVEN

Australian Geographic Outdoor - - Destination | Canada -

when ev­ery day ex­plor­ing a coun­try can be kicked off with hot pan­cakes and maple syrup for break­fast,

and (quite of­ten) be fin­ished with freshly caught wild salmon and a cold beer for din­ner. Okay, maybe that’s a slightly (quirky?) per­sonal view but I reckon that, af­ter many years of ex­pe­ri­enc­ing some of Canada’s best ad­ven­tures, these two meals of­fer per­fect book-ends to what are al­ways mem­o­rable days in the wilder­ness.

The best thing is, Canada is only one flight away from Oz – to Van­cou­ver, the cap­i­tal of Bri­tish Columbia (BC). This prov­ince is the most pop­u­lar with Aussie ad­ven­tur­ers, and is worth a story all of its own, but don’t dis­miss the oth­ers; the Yukon Ter­ri­tory, Al­berta, North­west Ter­ri­to­ries, Que­bec and New­found­land are also chock-full of out­door des­ti­na­tions. It won’t re­ally mat­ter which one it is – they all take you into some of the most amaz­ing land­scapes on the planet (think: old-growth rain­for­est, high moun­tains, re­mote is­lands, im­mense wa­ter­ways and the arc­tic), so there’s no chance of dis­ap­point­ment – just a guar­an­tee of huge doses of fun.
