FUN FACT FRIDAY - Did you know that Nova Scotia has an official provincial dog?

The Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever, the smallest of the retrievers, was bred in the community of Little River Harbour in Yarmouth County, Nova Scotia, at the beginning of the 19th century as a retrieval dog and hunting companion, and was named as the provincial breed in 1995.

There are many popular ‪dog‬ breeds that can be claimed as uniquely Canadian, including the Labrador Retriever, the Newfoundland and the Landseer.

Today marks the 45th Anniversary of #EarthDay ‬! First organized in 1970, this international day of action and accountability is celebrated by billions of people in more than 192 countries around the world!
+Fresh Tracks Canada is committed to providing experiences for our guests which highlight the biodiversity and spectacular natural wonders that can be found across #Canada  and work with partners and properties that are equally committed to green initiatives and sustainable practices.

Our friends at +Fairmont Hotels & Resorts have been busy as, well, bees in the last few years, adding rooftop hives, managing neighbourhood apiaries and offering guests the opportunity to interact with these industrious insects at 20 properties across the globe. #Fairmont  was the first luxury hotel brand to embrace an on-site #honeybee  program and is now a world leader and champion of this initiative: http://tinyurl.com/FTCBees

"Not only does the installation and maintenance of bee apiaries help the local environment by providing bees with a home to pollinate area gardens and parks, but by harvesting the honey, chefs can offer delicious, local and sustainable honey for use in onsite bars and restaurants."

We salute all our partners from coast to coast to coast for their thoughtful and creative green initiatives on this Earth Day and every day!

Stretched out between Vancouver and Whistler on the Sea to Sky Corridor, Howe Sound is home to North America's southernmost and most accessible fjord, with thousands of locals and visitors coming to the area to hike, bike, dive, camp, and fish in the pristine wilderness that surrounds this spectacular area.

Our friends at +USA TODAY have highlighted Howe Sound as one of the Fantastic fjords of North America, noting attractions like the Stawamus Chief hike, Shannon Falls, a 12-minute gondola ride to the top of the fjord on the +Sea to Sky Gondola and the Britannia Mine Museum as must-dos while in the area!

We completely agree with +The Guardian when they say that the incredible +VIARailCanadaInc trip from Jasper to Prince Rupert is one of the most spectacular rail journeys in the world, where endless mountain ranges, coastal views, remote communities and first nations history pass by just outside your window! http://tinyurl.com/FTC10BestRail

+Fresh Tracks Canada's Sea to Sky Explorer trip is an epic Canadian train journey into the heart of the Canadian rockies, including two days on the historic #Jasper  to #Prince_Rupert  route. Make this the year you witness magnificent geological formations, waterfalls, turquoise lakes, mountain goats, and black bears all from the comfort of a classic Canadian train: http://www.freshtrackscanada.com/vacation/totem-canada-rail-vacation

Sometimes, you just have to go with your gut and let your stomach plan your next trip!

"Montreal might as well change its tourism slogan to 'Come for the basilica, stay for the poutine.'”

+Condé Nast Traveler has named #Montreal  as one of the World's Best Food Cities, with nods to +Au Pied de Cochon and +Joe Beef for their innovative twists on traditional dishes: http://tinyurl.com/FTCFoodCities

+Fresh Tracks Canada's Montreal and Quebec City by Rail Getaway is a great introduction to culinary tourism, with 5 days to take in the taste of terroir up and down the northern shore of the St. Lawrence River: http://www.freshtrackscanada.com/vacation/montreal-quebec-experience

Do you have a taste for adventure? Where will your taste buds take you this year?

Last week, our team at +Fresh Tracks Canada swapped vacation building for team building and brought out the big knives for an evening of Iron Chef-style culinary teambuilding.

Competition #Quail  was fierce and resulted in plates that pleased the eyes as well as the palate! Many thanks to the staff and students at +Pacific Institute Of Culinary Arts for such a fun event, and for the wonderful meal that capped off a great night with good friends and good food!

Today marks the 103 anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic.Throughout the tragedy, Canadians rushed to the aid of the disaster and the passengers trapped in the sinking ship, and many of the bodies recovered afterwards were buried in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

To this day, the east coast of Canada continues to play a major role in the history and remembrance of one of the deadliest peacetime maritime disasters in modern history: http://tinyurl.com/FTCTitanic

There are so many great stops on this Ultimate Canadian Road Trip! Randy Olson, a computer science PhD candidate at Michigan State University, has designed an algorithm to map an optimal 16,226 km cross-‪ #Canada  road trip that reaches every province and territory...almost.

The northern territory of #Nunavut , occupying one fifth of Canada, is inaccessible by road or rail. The 25 separate communities of Nunavut are not connected to each other by highway or by railroad, nor are they connected by road or rail to any other Canadian cities to the south, and can only be reached by air and for a few short months in the summer, by boat.

We love the ease of following a computer-generated trip, but can an algorithm tell you how to get invited to the most authentic Jiggs Dinner in #Newfoundland  or tell you what side of the train to be on to get the best view of the sunrise over the mountains in #Alberta ? Our destination specialists at +Fresh Tracks Canada know this country from coast to coast to coast and work with our guests to customize each trip with insider information, passions and preferences. We can't wait to share our favourite things about this incredible country with you: http://www.freshtrackscanada.com/vacation/coast-to-coast-by-rail

The countdown is on! Only 5 more days until the Opening Day of #EdgeWalk  at +CN Tower in #Toronto !

The first of its kind in North America, EdgeWalk is the world’s highest full circle hands-free walk. Guests walk on a 5 ft (1.5 m) wide ledge around the top of the Tower’s main pod, 356m/1168ft (116 storeys) above the ground while attached to an overhead safety rail via a trolley and harness system.

Whether you want a sky-high experience like this, or choose to keep your feet firmly on the ground, +Fresh Tracks Canada will customize your trip from start to finish and ensure your last day in #Canada  is just as exciting as the first!
