1. Facing The Via Ferrata In Fjord-du-Saguenay, Quebec
If you’re the type who craves a physical challenge, you’ll find it here. A via ferrata is like an extreme obstacle course, perfect for extreme hikers and mountain climbers. It will test your fitness to a serious degree, but you’ll be rewarded with fantastic views of this pristine provincial park.

2. Deep-Sea Fishing In PEI
The province is one of the many places on the planet that claim to be the “tuna capital of the world.” You can put that boast to the test by signing up for a deep-sea fishing expedition. You’ll do battle (hopefully) with one of these mammoth fish but if you don’t want to catch one, that’s okay too – you can also book an excursion where you get to watch the tunas’ feeding frenzy at mealtime.

3. Northern Exposure In Dawson City, Yukon
The beauty of the Yukon surrounds you when you visit this funky, eclectic northern town. It’s the heart of the former Klondike Goldrush and the town still wears its rough-and-tumble image on its sleeve. Plan an epic road trip here to catch live music, pan for gold and experience the stunning subarctic scenery.

4. Gearheads Rejoice In Chatham, Ontario
The town of Chatham caters to car lovers of every description. It’s home to RM Auto Restoration, one of North America’s top car restoration facilities. Jay Leno and Nicolas Cage are just two celebrity clients who have visited to restore their classic rides.

5. Cruising On The Sky Highway, B.C.
Hop in your truck and cruise on Highway 99, also known as the Sea-To-Sky Highway, from Vancouver to Whistler. The views of mountain peaks and ocean waves will take your breath away. Be sure to stop at the Brandywine Falls to see the nearly 70-metre tall attraction up close.

Time to get rolling? There’s a 2017 Honda Ridgeline with an empty driver’s seat where you need to be right now. With its smooth handling, ample passenger room, standard Honda SensingTM Technologies to help make your drive safer and available Display Audio System with Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation SystemTM, it’s a sweet ride wherever you go.
