YOU KNOW YOU’RE IN ADVENTURE HEAVEN
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.
