From hiking and biking to swimming and skiing, Canada has a myriad of activities for the outdoor aficionado. The entire country is similar to an outdoor playground for adults, and with so much terrain to be covered it's often hard to know where to start. Soon, though, you'll have a whole new option available to you, and it could likely be your starting point to exploring Canada.
The Great Trail, when fully completed, will be the longest walkway trail system in the world, and will stretch across the entire country. Currently, the trail has an astounding 21,000kms complete, with the remaining 3,000kms to be completed by sometime next year. What this means for you, is that you can pre-plan your excursion for 2017 and strategize how you would like to tackle the massive 24,000km trailway.
Obviously a massive undertaking, we would not have this trail without the help of non-profit organization, Trans Canada Trail. Established in 1992, the organization has been the driving force of trail progress due to the generous donations it receives.
To find out more about the trail, be sure to visit The Great Trail website, and remember: "To follow the horizon along The Great Trail is to discover the beauty of Canada."
