Canada is the 2nd largest country in the world. It covers 9,984,670 square kilometers (3,855,100 square miles) and is composed of 10 provinces and 3 territories.
Since Canada is so vast, bagging all of the Canada Highpoints is an impressive accomplishment. The elevations of the 13 highpoints in Canada range from 466′ to 19,551′. While some of these highpoints are dog-friendly strolls, other require extended expeditions with technical climbing. Bagging the Highpoints of Canada is a serious feat.
