Those expecting Canada and Canadian adventure resorts to be a blander version of the USA should check their assumptions at the door.
Canada's wild northern frontier, which has etched itself into the national psyche, and its distinct patchwork of peoples have created a country that is decidedly different from its brash neighbour. It's the edginess between Canada's indigenous, French and British traditions that gives the nation its complex three-dimensional character.
Add to this a constant infusion of US culture and a plethora of traditions brought by migrants, and you have a thriving multicultural society.
With its history, people, landscape and natural beauty, Canada offers an abundance of well-known cities, attractions, parks and regions that make for wonderful destinations whether you're looking for a trip that's educational, inspiring or just plain fun. Canada is ideal for adventure travelers because you can hike, bike, trek and spelunk to your heart's content. Additionally, its close enough to the US that you may be able to drive which lets you bring your adventure travel gear along with you.
