Our Tour recommendations are based on thousands of activities completed by other people on komoot.

Being the second-largest country in the world and with both Atlantic and Pacific coastlines, it’s no wonder that walks in Canada are of an almost infinite variety. Would you like to wander along lake loops deep in the Rocky Mountains? How about walking along breathtaking shorelines in Newfoundland? There’s no doubt about it, Canada is a hiker’s paradise. 

You’ll find plenty of fantastic hikes in Canada’s many national parks including trails that lead you through exquisite forests of vast scale. In the west, you can explore the extraordinary temperate rainforest in British Columbia and head off on multi-day treks across jaw-dropping mountains. 

Not just mountains and coastlines, Canada’s enormous landscapes hold endless remote adventures. You can hike across tundra in the Northwest Territories, stroll in Acadian forests and walk in the footsteps of dinosaurs across prairies. 

With outstanding hospitality, wonderful managed walks and wild, backcountry trails along with abundant wildlife, hikes in Canada are the envy of the world.
