To say that Canada is large is an understatement. Sprawling over nearly 10 million square kilometers (3.9 million square miles), Canada is the second biggest country on earth.
While there are tens of thousands of different mountain biking options and tracks spread across the entirety of the country, some of the most popular are located in the eastern half of Canada.
Among these is Mont Tremblant National Park, in the province of Quebec. The mountain may be more modestly sized than many farther west, but there are still more than 50 kilometers (30 miles) of trails to explore, including some steep descents and other more peaceful woodland traverses.
On the other hand, those looking for a real challenge may want to try out a multi-day fat bike expedition in Yuko. Utilizing wider tires, cut through snow and explore some of Canada’s least populated sections of wilderness. While it may not be easy, the rewards are ample in terms of peaceful, remote and absolutely stunning mountain scenery.
Since Canada is so large, various parts of different climates. The interior tends to have hotter and drier summers, while the two coasts tend to be more mild. Rain is not infrequent in British Columbia or on the eastern seaboard either.
Canada is a big place, so depending on where you want to go, you will likely fly into any of the main cities, such as Toronto, Vancouver, Quebec and Calgary. From here, it is easiest to rent a car and drive to the start of the trip.
