Canadian road trips
WINNIPEG TO THE POLAR BEAR CAPITAL, MAN.
The tiny town of Churchill, set on the vast waters of Hudson Bay, is the end of the line — and thus, literally an ultimate destination. This road trip involves very little road — load your car aboard a VIA Rail train in Winnipeg, then settle in, relax, and watch the world go by on a lovely two-day, 1,700-kilometre journey to the subarctic.
Once you arrive, depending on the season, you can offload your car, drive under the Northern Lights, and find your way to spots that afford great glimpses of some of Canada’s most exotic wildlife. Scope polar bears (Churchill is the world’s polar bear capital) and beluga whales — thousands of which gather in the mouth of the Churchill River in the summer to molt (you can even snorkel with them).
THE LIGHTHOUSE ROUTE, N.S.
Tracing the southern shores of Nova Scotia, this route runs from Halifax to Yarmouth, passing more than 20 lighthouses along the way — forming the greatest collection of this iconic symbol of Canada’s East Coast.
As you follow Provincial Highway 103, make sure to stop in Peggy’s Cove, an almost-mystical spot built into giant rocks, its famous red-and-white lighthouse standing proudly in the face of the cold, blue North Atlantic Ocean. Take time to visit Lunenburg, where history stands around every corner and towering tall ships sit in the harbour.
Finally, enjoy Yarmouth, a town that’s home to the Cape Forchu Lighthouse, constructed back in 1839 and now surrounded by 19 acres of rugged parkland.
NIAGARA WINE COUNTRY, ONT.
Home to both tiny boutique wineries as well as famous vineyards, Ontario’s Niagara Region has made a name worldwide amongst oenophiles.
Centred around the charming village of Niagara-on-the-Lake, pretty much any two-lane leading out from town will take you into a world of grapes and orchards. Visit a place like Jackson-Triggs, which is both a household name and a megabrand (it was sold to a new owner a few years back for more than $1 billion), where you can take in a concert at their amphitheatre, or just enjoy a tour or a tasting.
Next, head to the Riverbend Inn, which includes 17 acres of vines and gardens, as well as a Georgian mansion that houses elegant guest rooms and a restaurant that affords one of the best views in the region.
No doubt, this must be the most exciting tourism project in our list. No matter you had or had not the similar experience before, we will provide a thorough tuition of how to use the hunting rifle. After have passed all the tests and obtained your temporary hunting license, you will be starting tuck away in the corner of a vast untamed Canadian wilderness and tracing to find your own preys.
There are many hunting opportunities at the hunting lodge. Not only the duck, rabbit hunting, they also offer moose, and black bear hunting – which is the core the most attractive part of this project. For the security reason, a fully licensed and experienced hunter from the lodge will accompany you during your whole stay in the hunting field.
