For the average Canadian, the May Long Weekend represents more than just that Monday off—it’s where sunshine and adventures reign supreme, the couch is curbed in favour of the outdoors and the tablet moves from the kitchen table to the back seat of the car. This May Long Weekend, why not throw caution to the wind and see what this beautiful country has to offer? Here’s your chance to explore some of Canada’s most treasured spots to create memories that will last a lifetime. You could:
- Watch whales instead of Netflix—The Vancouver Whale Watch, now in its 15th year, provides a once in a lifetime opportunity to see the majestic creatures in action.
- Check out the Wildlife Discovery Tour in Jasper, Alberta—the best place in the Canadian Rockies to see wildlife. Follow along knowledgeable guides in search of moose, elk, bear, mountain sheep, wolves, and even loons, eagles and osprey.
- Venture over to The Forks—Winnipeg’s meeting place where the Red and Assiniboine Rivers meet. Whether it’s beautiful scenery, dining, shopping or entertainment, it’s a great place to check out with the family over the long weekend.
- Give white water rafting a go at the River Run Rafting and Wilderness Resort in the Ottawa Valley—this family style raft trip is fun for adults as well as children of all ages.
- Hike the Cabot Trail on Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia. From hiking to kayaking to whale watching, the Cabot Trail provides the recipe for a perfect May Long Weekend.
After the adventure is over, it’s time to get you and your family back in tip top shape.

Does the idea of taking the kids for a hike scream laundry for days? Let OxiClean™ do all the work.
