About Adventure Canada

Founded in 1987, Adventure Canada was created to take people to Canada's "blank spaces," those areas whose remoteness alone made them special. Over the last sixteen years, along with our guests, we have discovered that there is so much that is special about the places we travel, from the landscape, wildlife and culture to the history, art and archeology that is unique to every destination. It is our belief that there is so much to see "beyond the binoculars" that drives us to delve deeper into our favourite places with every expedition and continually seek out new destinations.
