3 Top Places to Explore When Hiking in Canada

February 23, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 113

If you want to go hiking in a place where you will find just about every stunning natural landscape you can imagine, you should look no further than Canada. Hiking holiday enthusiasts have been heading here for decades to explore the wild, rugged and beautiful terrain, but the problem you might have is deciding where to go. After all, it is a huge country and there is no shortage of options.

Here are a few of the best places in Canada to explore to help you make your decision.

Pacific Rim National Park Reserve

This reserve is a huge area, and within it you will find three different regions consisting of the Long Beach Unit, the Broken Group Islands Unit with over 100 islands, and the West Coast Trail Unit - a hiking route almost 50 miles long. Any area is well worth visiting, but the West Coast Trail is one of the most famous routes in Canada. Hiking holiday enthusiasts will traverse cliffs, through forests, along beaches and truly be able to see the country at its finest.

Dinosaur Provincial Park

This park is named as such because of the huge number of fossils that have been found here. But, even aside from the fossils, a trip to this park is like a trip to another world when you visit Canada. Hiking holiday specialists may be able to offer guided walks here, and lead you through incredible land features that have been shaped by the wind, the weather and time.

Cape Breton Highlands National Park

Nova Scotia is one of the most famous wilderness areas of them all; and at over 350 square miles it is a huge expanse of breath-taking scenery to explore. Comprising coastal trails and highland scenery, and taking in the Cape Breton Highlands National Park, this is an exceptional area to go hiking. The best feature of all is the Cabot Trail, one of the most well-known hiking trails in Canada, which goes right through the park. If you get a chance to hike this route then you are in for a real treat - and a swathe of photo opportunities unlike any other.

Canada: A Hiker's Paradise

Canada is a true wilderness paradise for anyone who wants to get out into the open and go exploring. Because of all the options available in Canada, hiking holiday fans will have plenty to choose from, but the above may help you to get a better idea of some of the best places to include on an intinerary.
