Nature has a lasting effect on us and experts say that the bigger the nature, the better. On Canada's west coast you’ll find space to breathe, think and reset — exactly what we all need in the wake of the pandemic. British Columbia is freedom itself: from watching a bear leap on a sockeye salmon to kayaking across glassy lakes into a shimmering, golden sunset. Enter now for your chance to win some gear to tackle Canada's greatest wilderness.

The prize includes gear from British Columbian brand Arc’teryx, a Garmin smart watch and a Hydro Flask.
