Top 10 hikes in Canada

Two months in Canada was barely enough time to even scratch the surface of this beautiful country. Yet it was just long enough to make me fall even more in love with this ever increasingly popular haven for hikers.

I’d spent the better half of the last five years dreaming of the turquoise waters of Lake Louise and the lush green forests that the West coast is famous for and the reality certainly didn’t disappoint. I can’t recommend Canada more as a destination for anyone searching for that little spot of unspoilt nature where you can escape from the city and lose yourself in the great outdoors.

The problem with such a huge country is that there is an insane amount of choice when it comes to trails but after my whirlwind trip I’ve come up with a list of my ten favourite hikes from the East to the West so far.
