Canadian Adventures in Alberta
Alberta is home to the beautiful Canadian Rockies and several national parks including Jasper and Banff. Although we toured the area on a Canadian Rockies Tauck Tour, it’s time to return to hike to Lake Agnes Tea House at Lake Louise.
Beautiful Experiences in British Columbia
British Columbia stretches from the Canadian Rockies to the Pacific Ocean. Heli hiking in the Bugaboos is high on our boomer bucket list. Or follow in our travel footsteps by taking a Vancouver Island Road Trip.
Outdoor Fun in Manitoba
Manitoba has more than 80 provincial parks with a varied landscape that offers numerous outdoor opportunities. Watching polar bears in Churchill is tops on our boomer want to do list.
Wildlife Watching in New Brunswick
New Brunswick, on the eastern coast of Canada, offers prime wildlife watching including whales, bear and moose. Or experience the amazing tidal bore at Bay of Fundy.
Bucket List Experiences in Newfoundland and Labrador
Newfoundland and Labrador, on the eastern edge of North America, offer once-in-a-lifetime travel experiences for the active boomer traveler. Highlights include the stunning Gros Morne National Park and iceberg viewing by kayak or boat along Iceberg Alley.
Go Off-the-beaten-path in the Northwest Territories
Northwest Territories (territory) is Canada at its wildest. Arranging the hiking, white water rafting and adventuring is best left up to the experts. Start your research at the Northwest Territories tourism page.
Coastal Adventures in Nova Scotia
Nova Scotia provides history, culture and natural beauty on the eastern coast of Canada. Drive the Cabot Trail or bike it!
Ultimate Canadian Adventures in Nunavut
Nunavut (territory) lays claim to the term “like nowhere else on Earth.” If you want to see wildlife like narwhal, polar bear, beluga whales and muskox, this Arctic territory adjacent to the Northwest passage will do.

Explore the Countryside in Ontario

Prince Edward Island may be tiny but it’s packed with fun. Think lobster, Anne of Green Gables, lobster, well you get the gist. Don’t these authentic PEI experiences look like fun?
Wildlife Adventure in Quebec
Quebec may mean Montreal to you, but we recommend you go walking with wolves.
Explore the Prairie in Saskatchewan
Saskatchewan is home to prairies, lakes and winter fun. Or how about horseback riding in Grasslands National Park?
Wild Times in the Yukon
Yukon (territory) offers adventure and first nation culture. If you’re driving the Alaska Highway, take time to explore Kluane National Park. But what we really want to do is go dog sledding on a winter trip to the Ibex Valley.
