Canada offers intrepid travellers countless opportunities to explore and experience the country, from hiking in Vancouver Island to venturing into the Rocky Mountains.
If, however, you're keen to get a taste of a variety of activities, why not book a nine-day adventure package? This will give you the chance to see a number of fascinating destinations, as well as undertake exhilarating pastimes.

Among the unforgettable activities you'll have the opportunity to try your hand at are zip-lining, caving and whale watching.
Your journey can start in Seattle, where you'll bid the US farewell and head to Whistler to kick-off your trip of a lifetime. This location is ripe for adventure, and you'll dive straight in with a zip-lining tour through the trees.
Next, you can choose between a number of activities, including quad biking, bungee jumping and mountain biking.
Travelling to Vancouver Island you will be greeted by stunning, clear water and great scenery. Among the things to do here is walk through beautiful forest and canoe on placid lakes, but undoubtedly the most memorable will be going caving, as this is one of the top spots for the pastime in British Columbia.
Head next to Tofino, where you'll embark on a whale watching trip on Clayoquat Sound - look out for seals, sea lions and porpoises too.
After arriving in your next destination, Victoria, you can start to unwind with visits to historic sites and shopping excursions, before reaching Vancouver - the final stop on the tour ahead of your trip back to Seattle.
