Much of the world may associate Canada with perpetual ice and snow, when in fact the nation’s summers are some of the best on the planet.

National Parks and Forests

Canada has many large parks and forests, but during the winter the temperatures can drop so low that sleeping in a park can be dangerous. During the summer, a person can easily see the trails and paths in order to successfully navigate and explore the large forests.

Each summer, the flowers, trees, shrubs and tall grass of Canada’s forests blossom and grow, and a wide variety of animals can be seen in their natural habitat.

Climbing Mountains

Canada has exceptionally tall hills and mountains, and summer is the optimal season for climbing mountains of all sizes.

During the other seasons, many of the mountains have much more snow at lower altitudes, and the ice and the cold water can be hazardous to climbers.
