If you’ve never been to Canada – or even if you simply haven’t been there in a long time – this is an ideal year to visit on an ecotourism trip. Spring to fall especially is a suitable period if you plan to participate in outdoor activities here – a country where emphasis on protecting the environment is just as high as the breathtaking snow-capped Rocky Mountains that make you appreciate the planet like never before.
Canada, the second largest country in the world, is located right above the United States of America. Because Canada is within driving distance for some Americans and flying a plane therefore can be avoided, a trip here can be quite green (airplanes produce tons more carbon dioxide emissions than cars do).
Canada features a 2.5-million-acre protected area that is linked to Alaska’s Glacier Bay. This region actually is one of the biggest transborder national parks on the planet. In addition, the scenic wilderness is very camera-worthy, and even desert land and a rainforest are situated close to one another in the southwestern part of the country. Canada further has more lakes than any other country in the world.
Gatineau Park, a protected area of this country that spans 72,000 acres, particularly is captivating for outdoor enthusiasts who enjoy activities such as camping and even showshoeing – or traveling using snowshoes – while paying special attention to conservation, an idea strongly promoted by the Canadian Conservation Institute. The Bruce Trail system further is present in the area of the Niagara Escarpment in the province of Ontario. Unique animal life and flora additionally dot the southern tip of the country.
In addition to enjoying ecotourism opportunities that focus on nature, you can take advantage of chances to engage in ecotourism that concentrates on the cultures and art of the indigenous people of Canada. With several cultural influences existing in the country – from those of the Aboriginals and British to that of the French and Americans – Canada is sure to offer an ethnically diverse vacation spot for an exciting adventure.
Whether allowing you to tour a number of glaciers or see the great caribou migration, Canada is known worldwide for its natural attractions. You may wish to explore this country’s wonders on your own or use a tour guide to show you the nation’s marine life, giant trees and beautiful aurora borealis displays. Either way, you are sure to gain an even greater appreciation of what Mother Nature has to offer in this part of the world – right in America’s own backyard.
