Canada is a land of vast tundra, towering mountain ranges, alpine lakes, and wild coastline. With miles of uncharted trails to explore, it's one of the ultimate destinations for the active traveler.
Often overlooked because it's so close, this country north of the border doesn't grace very many bucket lists. We're here to add it to yours. Vibrant, multicultural cities dot the map, from Vancouver to Toronto, and wildlife-filled landscapes fill the void in between. Most of our trips are located in British Columbia, where grizzly bears roam riverbeds that teem with salmon and helicopters and small bush planes are a favorite way to access untracked terrain.
"British Columbia is the kingdom of abundance. Where glaciated mountains stand over an unruly Pacific. Rainforests wrap cities. Nature shapes culture. The wild breathing life back into the wild within.”
A few of our favorite lodges in Canada include Nimmo Bay Resort, Siwash Lake Ranch, Clayoquot Wilderness Resort, and Tweedsmuir Park Lodge. Enjoy these epic properties year-round. Traveling with the kids in tow? Send them out on a guided horseback ride in the Cariboo region or on a tailored adventure along the coast. Planning a romantic honeymoon? Book a stay in a canvas tent above the clouds, accessed only by helicopter with no one else for miles. No matter how you want to do Canada, we'll be happy to customize your dream trip to this epic destination.
The wilds of Bella Coola Valley in British Columbia evokes the explorer within each of us. Untouched slopes, new drop locations each day, and a luxe lodge to relax in at night makes this trip a skier's paradise.
