Camping is of course a popular thing to do in Canada, but to really take it up a notch, you can try spending a night or two in a yurt, which is a portable, circular dwelling that are traditional to Central Asia.
Instead of spending a night braving the elements in a tent, you can cozy up in these structures that are typically wooden and have a little hole at the top for ventilation and stargazing.
