The world’s longest trail is in Canada!

July 19, 2017

Since it was started to be built in 1992, the world’s longest trail will cross Canada from east to west, totalling more than 24,000 km of trails! This gigantic path takes part of the celebrations for the 150th anniversary of Canadian Confederation to formally open its doors, and ultimately offer trekking enthusiasts an extraordinary journey.

It would take approximately 500 days, at a rate of 2 km per hour, to travel the trail from one end to the other, which crosses over 13 regions of the country and offers recreational activities all year long. Whether you are a fan of hiking, cycling, horseback riding, cross-country skiing or even kayaking, the planet’s largest recreational trail will delight everyone. In fact, everything from walking to riding a snowmobile is possible...except for using a car!

It goes without saying that natural landscapes, cultural diversity and historical heritage await you throughout the Great Trail. Obviously, you can enjoy the trail’s exceptional panoramic views at your own pace by enjoying some 500 individual treks, extending from the Atlantic to the Pacific and Arctic oceans.
