Nature lovers will be in their element in Canada – from incredible rugged coastlines and soaring mountains, to sparkling lakes and icy glaciers, this country is full of wonderful national parks. The wildlife too is in abundance, with orca, humpbacks, dolphins and walrus and seals found off-shore and bears, moose, caribou and gray wolves found within many of Canada’s provinces.
