If you’re looking to get back to nature, Elk Island National Park is home to a host of indigenous wildlife including moose and beaver. Fans of winter sports will love the cross-country ski trails and, if you prefer to enjoy your sport sitting down, find out why Canada is hockey mad and get a ticket to see local heroes, the Oilers, play at Rexall Place.
