Canada-Wide Summer Bucket List
To me, summer screams bucket lists. Now that school is out, this is a season to check off everything you’ve wanted to do for so long but haven’t had the chance to until now! If you like to travel or want to experience travelling for the first time, it’s a good idea to start off with the place you are from. I was born in Edmonton, Alberta, and even I don’t know all the travel spots in Canada!
This list highlights some Canada-wide places you should add to your bucket list. After all, Canadians like a good adventure, eh?
- Alberta: Explore Canada’s beautiful Rocky Mountains.
- British Columbia:
- Northwest Territories: See the northern lights.
- Saskatchewan: Explore the Athabasca sand dunes.
- Nunavut: Visit the Arctic Watch Lodge, and get a chance to see thousands of beluga whales that swim at the mouth of the nearby Cunningham River.
- Manitoba: Snorkel with belugas.
- Ontario: Visit the Big Nickel and Niagara Falls.
- Quebec: Wander the Mingan Archipelago, explore the glaciers, winds, waves, and other erosive forces.
- Prince Edward Island: Walk the Confederation Trail that has left a skeleton mark after the Canadian National Railway abandoned its lines at PEI.
- Newfoundland: Kayak among icebergs.
It’s safe to say I am so ready to start travelling right about now. Of course, this is only a fraction of the summer bucket list you’re probably making at this very moment, but this is a good start.
Although out of the country bucket lists are also pretty awesome, remember that travelling doesn’t have to be far away from home! So I say grab a travel buddy to have alongside you and start travelling in your very own country. You would be surprised at all the places you didn’t know existed. I know I am.
