1. EdgeWalk at the CN Tower, Toronto
At 356m, the CN Tower is the tallest building in Toronto. Test your fear of heights and walk around the circumference of the tower! Enjoy the best views over the city, and wave to spectators below. Perhaps not best for those scared of heights...
2. Indoor Skydiving, Toronto
It’s a drizzly and grey day, but you feel the need to get your pulse racing… how about indoor skydiving? At the iFly in Toronto, you can experience jumping out of a plane without having to actually do it! This indoor wind tunnel is the perfect way to satisfy those adrenaline needs without fearing for your life. Great!
Tip: If you want the real thing, Canada is also a great place to jump out of a real plane.
3. Niagara Falls Zipline Ride, Niagara Falls
If you want to get as close as possible to a powerful and mighty Waterfall, try it from another perspective - soar across the sky with amazing world wonder views in Niagara Falls! Dozens of ziplines whizzing everywhere. A gravity-powered jump that makes your palms sweat.
4. Polar Bears, Churchill
If you enjoy wildlife and want to see a Polar Bear, Churchill in Manitoba is probably the best place in the world to go. The best time to go is October or November, as the polar bears move from their summer habitat. Polar bears are endangered, and regulation on tours is strict, and although they look cute and cuddly, don’t forget that they are also dangerous!
5. Skiing and snowboarding, Vancouver
Canada is an awesome place for skiing and snowboarding. There are plenty of places to choose from that cater for all kinds of snow-related activities. One of the best places to go is Whistler in British Colombia, which was the main venue for the 2010 Winter Olympic Games.
6. Kayaking, Vancouver
Kayaking is always fun, but what could be better than watching whales and seals swim in the water beside you at the same time? You can do day trips, or even go on tours for a few days; camp in the evenings and sing songs around the campfire under the stars. How lovely!
7. Tidal rafting, Bay of Fundy
Love rafting? Think you’ve experience all it has to offer? Think again. The Bay of Fundy has the world’s highest recorded tides, meaning it’s a super exciting place to go rafting. Prepare for a wet and wild trip as you meet the tide head on. Hold on tight, you’re in for a bumpy ride!
8. Summer Bobsleigh, Calgary
When in Calgary, why not Bobsleigh? Experience the tight turns, high speed and G-Force of the Bobsleigh. The pilot will take you through 10 turns, you’ll reach speeds of upto 80km and a force of 2G. Don’t miss out on this unusual and intriguing experience!
9. Climbing, British Colombia
Whether you are a beginner or advanced, want to start on an indoor wall or outside, Canada is a great place to go climbing. You can go climbing outdoors at Whistler in British Colombia, or do an indoor climbing course in Vancouver. Whatever tickles your fancy!
10. Tandem Paragliding, British Colombia
For those looking for a real adrenaline rush, head to Golden in British Colombia where you will find some of Canada's biggest mountains. With tandem paragliding, a fully qualified pilot will guide you so you can make the most of the view.
