See Where We Go: Canada Edition

Now that winter is officially behind us and long weekends are in sight, we went straight to the source and polled our fans to find out your favourite places to get outside all summer long in Canada. With such a diverse landscape, and stunning outdoor spaces, there are endless opportunities to get outside every weekend (or every weekday!).

Exploring Banff National Park, Alberta

Hiking was at the top of everyone’s list, and Banff National Park is the perfect place to do it. Surrounded by majestic mountains, pristine lakes, and abundant wildlife. Our fans recommended a hike to Moraine Lake, taking a dip in the Banff Upper Hot Springs, or just taking in the breathtaking beauty of Lake Louise.

Experience the Saguenay Fjord, Quebec

One of the most memorable kayaking adventures you could have is along the Saguenay Fjord, a majestic natural wonder carved out by glaciers.
