Pack your bags for outdoor recreation at its finest! From coast to coast, we’ve uncovered Canada’s 10 Best NEW Adventure basecamps.

Small towns from coast-to-coast boast playgrounds of rushing rivers, sinuous single-track, craggy coastlines and languid lakes—sometimes right in town. These are ideal destinations for spring weekends, with laid-back locals, good eats and, most important, a plethora of multi-sport fun. Some of these towns, like Squamish, Banff and Tremblant, everyone knows. So, we’ve scoured our sources for the next place to play this year. Here is what we found.

British Columbia
