The WILDEST Places In Canada

By Candice Bartlett | January 31, 2021

Where the rocks revel in their freedom. Where the wind is wild and the landscape iconic. Canada’s wilderness is big and beautiful, and some of the world’s most spectacular animals call it their home. Born and raised in Canada, Wild Women Expeditions have been exploring this country for thirty years! So, we’ve done a roundup of Canada’s wildest places to inspire your wild spirit and nature lovin’ hearts.

 

 

 

HAIDA GWAII

You can feel the pulse of this vast, magical place. It is deep, and sure, and in perfect sync with your own wild, happy heart.

Paddling through Gwaii Haanas National Park Reserve is an experience unlike any other. Drifting through Haida First Nation waterways, we’ll pass ancient totem poles that dot the distance. We’ll spot black bears between the towering trees, with sea lions and seals flopping at the water’s edge. Our days are spent upon the surface of the sea with 4-5 hours of paddling, gliding through the untouched shorelines. Our Haida Gwaii Kayak Adventure is a true wilderness experience.

 

 

 

THE WILDS OF SABLE ISLAND

You want wild? A sandbar as long as Manhattan—but only about a kilometre wide—Sable Island is a bird watcher’s paradise and home to many varieties of birds, including the Ispwich Sparrow. It has the largest grey seal colony in the world. AND this island is also home to the famous wild Sable Island Horses; check out some wild horse spirit here!

On our Atlantic Canada Explorer, we’ll maximize opportunities to walk the dunes, cruise the shores and view the wildlife. We’ll also learn first-hand about Sable Island’s fascinating human history.

 

 

 

ADVENTURE IN CHURCHILL

What’s wilder than a polar bear? Sitting on the edge of the Hudson Bay, built on deep Indigenous roots and home to Canada’s most iconic wildlife, the town of Churchill is a must-visit destination for those who seek an authentic Canadian adventure.

Set out to search for Polar bears in the polar bear capital of the world! We’ll head out on a Tundra buggy adventure to witness these majestic creatures in the wild on our Polar Bear Safari.

THE TORNGAT MOUNTAINS

The Torngat Mountains are Canada’s highest peaks east of the Rockies! Here, the Inuit of Nunatsiavut will be our guides in their spiritual homeland. Polar bears, black bears, caribou, falcons, and eagles are among the species we hope to spot. We’ll also be on the lookout for marine mammals.

We’ll spend our time hiking, searching for wildlife, visiting archaeological sites, and Zodiac cruising in this area on our Greenland To Wild Labrador Adventure!
