Outdoor Adventurer: Exploring Canada’s National Parks

As the second largest country in the world, there’s no need to leave Canada to indulge your passion for outdoor adventure travel. According to Parks Canada, there are 44 National Parks across the country, so whether you’re looking for a quick weekend getaway or a multi-province tour, there is something for everyone. “With warmer temperatures travellers are now getting back outdoors and enjoying nature,” says Taylor L. Cole, Hotels.com travel expert. “Canada is the perfect destination for outdoor enthusiasts with an abundance of wilderness and uninhabited space to explore.”

Climb these Mountains

The Canadian Rockies are an obvious choice during climbing season and Jasper National Park is the biggest of Canada’s Rocky Mountain Parks and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Mid-level climbers may enjoy Hawk or Pyramid Mountain which can be completed within a day. More experienced climbers should check out Rock Gardens and Lost Boys, both known for their quality routes and beautiful views.

Try these Scenic Trails

Sometimes the best way to explore a destination is by foot. This is definitely the case with Twillingate, located off the northeastern shore of Newfoundland. Known as the “Iceberg Capital of the World,” the scenic coastline has many walking trails where visitors flock to take in the scenery, spot icebergs and, if lucky, some whales, too!

Experience this Overnight Getaway

If you love being one with nature but don’t want to sleep outside, a stay in a yurt may be the perfect compromise. Fundy National Park of Canada in New Brunswick is one of just a few parks that offer this unique accommodation. Originally used as portable homes by nomads, modern-day yurts include insulated walls and a roof, a propane stove, beds, solar-powered lighting and a glass viewing area so guests can experience the night sky. Experience Canada’s beauty from coast to coast and get outdoorsy for your next travel getaway. –www.newscanada.com
