Extreme Sports to Enjoy in Canada

Canada is not just full of beautiful vistas and exciting cities, but it is also the perfect destination for an adventure-filled holiday. Adrenaline junkies will find activities that will make their hearts race and will give them memories to treasure for the rest of their lives.

1. Skiing in Whistler

Adventure is not just for the warm, summer days. Winter, in particular, is great for those who love to ski or snowboard. Whether you are a beginner or an expert, you will find the perfect piste for you in Whistler. There is truly no other way to enjoy the snowy days than exploring the 8,171 acres of pistes here.

2. Cross The Arctic Circle

Hiking is not really the most extreme sport, but if you do so here, then you will experience a more extreme version of hiking. Beyond being more challenging, it will also give you the chance to enjoy the breathtaking views. Plus, you can say you have crossed the Arctic circle on foot.

Visiting in June will allow you to enjoy the midnight sun and even at this time, experienced skiers can try out the off-piste powder. Climbers will also find some exciting peaks to try out. Other activities include dogsledding expeditions and tours on snowmobile.

3. Whitewater Rafting In Banff

There are few activities as exciting as whitewater rafting, especially when you choose the expert routes with the huge waves and even a cliff jump of Horseshoe Canyon in Banff. Newbies or those traveling with kids might want to start off with Kananaskis River, which still packs some excitement with their class 2 to 3 rapids. As you advance, you can try out Horse River and check out the Rocky Mountains on a day trip.

4. Hike Up The Grouse Grind

Beyond being very physically demanding, this hike is perfect for thrillseekers who want to go up quickly. While it will only take about an hour and a half and it is only 2.9 kilometers each way, you will go up 853 meters and will enjoy a beautiful view of Vancouver up top. Take note, however, that being very fit is a requirement before going up  because it truly is a grueling hike.

5. Glacier Skywalk

This place is known to be “where the eagles soar” and is definitely not for those who are scared of heights. The Glacier Skywalk is suspended between the dramatic cliffs, including a 918-foot drop at the end. It is open only during summertime and visitors will be rewarded with breathtaking views.

6. Edmonton Skydive

The highest jumps in Western Canada, as well as an elongated freefall, can be found in Edmonton. Beyond that, it is the place where the best instructors can be found.

7. Whistler Bungee

Bungee jumpers will not just enjoy the adrenaline rush here but will also find the most scenic setting for a hump in Whistler. Open all throughout the year, the views include the Cheakamus River, which receives its waters from glaciers in the area.

Tourists bored of the same old city tour will definitely find more exciting adventures in Canada, whether they visit in summer or winter. So prepare yourself for a trip like no other.
