6 Beautiful Places to Relive Canada's Rich History
Experience Canada's rich history as you retrace the footsteps of the Klondike Goldrush, British colonial settlement, United Empire Loyalists village and visit the only Viking site in North America. We've selected six unique places of significant importance in Canadian history.
The Cultural and Natural Wonders of Quebec
Canada’s largest province has more water, forests and open space than it knows what to do with, and so it’s no wonder the Quebecois take their hiking, biking and paddling seriously.
Surprises along the East Coast Trail Hike
There are a number of things that will surprise you about Great Canadian Trails' East Coast Trail hike. Even the most seasoned long-distance hikers have their expectations exceeded.

The Yukon Territory has long attracted its share of dreamers. This is the North in all its glory, and with all its eccentricities too.
Travelogue: The Chilkoot Trail
Step back in time and retrace the footsteps of the Klondike Goldrush on the Chilkoot Trail. As its name suggests, the Klondike Goldrush was the migration of approximately steadfast 100,000 prospectors in their quest to amass riches in the Klondike region of the Yukon. Discover the varied natural beauty and rich history of this trail.

These hiking trails in Newfoundland offer edge-of-the-world views for the aspiring explorer.
