CANADIAN AFFAIR - THE TRAVEL EXPERTS

Canada Activity & Adventure Holidays

Discover Canada's wild heart

It's feeling the wind on your face as you zip-line through the cedars or listening for the aurora’s song as it shimmers in the Northern skies. It's seeing a whale's fluke disappear into the ocean or a bear’s breath mist the morning air. That's Canada's wild side!

Bear watching

A Canada holiday wouldn’t be complete without spotting Canada’s favourite residents. Black bears are commonly sighted in the mountains, while remote wilderness resorts offer excellent grizzly viewing, especially around BC’s salmon run in September. You can spot bears between April and November (except polar bears, which are best in October and November).
