13 Jun June 13, 2016 by Vision Travel in Active Travel Summer has arrived in Canada and there really isn’t anything else quite so glorious plus there are endless things to see and do. No wonder Destination Canada uses the tag line keep exploring. Perhaps we here in Canada are a bit guilty of thinking first of exotic and/or distant lands when we plan travel. But there’s such a lot to see here, and your Vision travel advisor can help you narrow your choice down while saving you countless hours of research. PLUS you won’t have to worry about exchange rates eating up a portion of your precious travel dollars. Of course there’s a ton for the active traveller. Biking, kayaking, canoeing, hiking, walking – and more of the activities we often travel overseas for. Check out the West Coast including Haida Gwaii (former Queen Charlotte Islands) or the stunning East Coast Trail in Newfoundland. Visit the famed Hopewell Rocks and hike a remote stretch along the Bay of Fundy or work up a thirst (for wine) cycling through Niagara Wine Country. And if you’ve been there, done that, head north, far north to the Chilkoot Trail. You’ll have bragging rights for sure! If you are looking for something a little less active you can explore Canada’s west from the first class comfort of the legendary Rocky Mountaineer train. During the summer our biggest cities come alive with endless festivals such as the Toronto and Montreal Jazz Festivals, maybe this is your year to experience them. Whether you are looking for a short getaway or are planning a bigger exploration of our beautiful country, Your Vision travel advisor can help you enjoy the ultimate staycation this year.
