Canada has a wealth of 'classic' products that virtually sell themselves, but for clients returning for a second or third visit, suggest some of the following, says Julie Baxter


YOU'VE SOLD THE CLASSIC ROCKY MOUNTAINEER TRAIN SO NOW BOOK...AGAWA CANYON TRAIN


The Agawa Canyon Tour Train in Northern Ontario offers a one-day wilderness excursion going 114 miles north of Sault Ste. Marie. The route runs alongside pristine northern lakes and rivers and through the awesome granite rock formations and vast mixed forests of the Canadian Shield, the oldest mountain range in the world (some parts of which are over three billion years old). The year-round journey is considered to be at its best during the last two weeks of September and the first week of October when autumn ‘leaf peepers’ will experience some of the most


spectacular colours in North America. BOOK IT agawacanyontourism.com

Most people only think of the coasts and salmon for a Canada fishing trip. But did you know Saskatchewan offers some of the best freshwater fishing in the world? Gentle meandering streams, fast-flowing rivers, and around 100,000 pristine lakes make the fishing memorable. Local outfitters help anglers hook Northern pike, walleye, lake trout, Arctic grayling and rainbow trout; while fly-in, luxury fishing lodges ensure top-end experiences. tourismsaskatchewan.com


Each July Williams Lake, BC, draws a smaller, more local crowd to its Williams Lake Stampede run by the Canadian Professional Rodeo Association.

rodeo events as the Calgary Stampede including bull riding, bareback riding, saddle bronc, steer wrestling, team roping, tie-down roping and barrel racing. It even has its own signature mountain race.


This is an authentic and historic rodeo. BOOK IT Williams Lake is located 550km north of Vancouver and can be accessed by car, domestic flights from Vancouver or rail through the Fraser River Canyon. Hotels in town include Ramada and
