Canada is a great country to visit. If you’re in your 20s, here are some of the places you should visit and activities you should try.
Driving a car from St John’s to Vancouver Island
Driving from St John’s to Vancouver Island lets you see some of the best sights of Canada that most people never think to explore, like Northern Ontario. However, don’t forget to fill up on gas because you’ll be driving for hours with no gas station in sight.
If you want to party, Montreal is the place to be. It’s the best party city in Canada and there are lots of things for young folks to do. And did we mention that Montreal also hosts Canada’s largest music festival every year?
Long Range Traverse in Gros Morne National Park, Newfoundland
If you have sense of adventure and you want to prove that you’re one of those 20-somethings who don’t rely on technology and Google maps, then you should try the Long Range Traverse. It is one of the few remaining hikes in Canada that require you to pass a compass test before you can try it out. It has gorgeous views, too.
Many people complain how cold it is in Canada, but you haven’t tasted what “cold” really feels like until you spend some time in the Yukon. If you want insight into the North, then the Yukon is the best place to start.
Dubbed the “greatest outdoor show on Earth,” the Calgary Stampede is the perfect event for those who want to feel like a cowboy for a day. It is a cause for a massive celebration in Calgary every July and it turns the whole city into one huge party zone.
Unless you don’t want to feel like a petrified sloth.
While the VIA Rail is not the cheapest nor the most efficient rail system in Canada, it is still worth a try as it lets you see some parts of the country that you won’t ever see from the highway. You’ll see a 360-degree view of the countryside and even have the chance to befriend musicians putting on a free show for the passengers.
Sleeping under the stars in Prince Albert National Park
If you want to debunk the myth that Canadian prairies are boring, then you should try sleeping under the prairie stars in Prince Albert National Park in Saskatchewan. Just make sure to wear jeans because mosquitoes will be feasting on your skin if you don’t.
