A year of travel adventure in the great white north
From mountain-top yoga in the Canadian Rockies to an epic train journey across the country aboard The Canadian. From deep in the silent forests of British Columbia to the pinnacle of man-made heights at the top of the CN Tower in Toronto. From the cascading waters of Niagara Falls to frozen art at Quebec’s world famous Ice Hotel.
Over the next few months, I will be travelling in Ontario, Quebec, Alberta and British Columbia to document as many of the 20 Canadian Signature Experiences on the following list as I can. These 20 attractions and activities have been singled out by the Canadian Tourism Commission as among the best experiences to enjoy across Canada.

Canada at heart
I’ve lived in Canada almost my entire life. I was born in Canada, as were both my parents, three of my grandparents and lots of great and great-great grandparents. I love this country for the magnificence of the wilderness, the unique northern culture, the friendliness of the people … and so many more reasons, some as-yet-undiscovered. So please come along with me as I explore my home and native land.
