Most Canadians live in cities, but that doesn’t mean you can’t find a peaceful oasis amid the high-rises and traffic jams. Uncover parks, rivers, pathways and quiet corners in an urban landscape across Alberta and B.C. Both are home to some of the biggest urban parks in North America, filled with opportunities for moonlight hikes with guides to learn about the local critters or fly-fishing lessons, one of the coolest ways to unwind. 

Searching for heaven? Pull on your shoes and walk down No. 5 Road in Richmond, BC. No wonder it’s been coined the Highway to Heaven—it’s home to more than 20 spiritual centres.
