Canoe

It’s pure paddling pleasure in Ontario, with Point Pelee National Park’s winding freshwater marshes and Algonquin Provincial Park’s network of lakes.

Island hop

The islets of Québec’s Mingan Archipelago or BC’s lush Gulf Islands are both national park reserves.

Drive

Jasper’s Icefields Parkway is a superlative mountain drive, but the Cabot Trail in Nova Scotia’s Cape Breton Highlands is a fine maritime alternative.

Hike

Banff’s credentials can’t be denied, but to escape the crowds, head to Gros Morne National Park, Newfoundland.

Soak in

Radium or Banff Upper hot springs in the Rockies: both offer steaming waters to soothe the tired traveller.

Raft

Nahanni National Park in the Northwest Territories just edges Jasper for wild whitewater thrills.
