Admitting, I have never been to Canada in Real Life, the closest I have been there was road trip in the USA Rocky Mountains including Yellowstone NP and up.
So when I visited Canadian Wilderness in Second Life this evening, I think it matched my…..expectations. Mountain ranges around, green forests and wildlife.
You can rezz your own horse and go explore via the horse trail, or just wander around. Allover are secluded spots with intan-couple dances, which makes it a nice destination for a romantic date as well. Oh and you can fish the 7Sea’s, do a balloon-tour or what you want! I just enjoyed the view and the details, as it is also a wonderful location for taking pictures and just….relax!

I’m from Canada! Moose and cougar country lol. I love the last pic. So ethereal!
Thanks for the tip, I’m there now exploring it. I’d say it has some aspects of Canada right, but it feels a bit like a Disney-fied version of the real thing. Your pictures do a great job of capturing the nice bits, but the sim is a bit like every Canadian natural icon rolled-up and laid out like a yard sale into a small space – I don’t know… the Canadian Wilderness doesn’t look like that. It’s way more woodsy, way less convenient. This is more like a theme park somewhere, made to look like the Canada we know about only in glossy travel brochures. Makes me feel like doing it better though… :)
Hiya Becky! It is always weird to go to your ‘home country’ in SL, right? The only correct, and really striking, version I have seen of Holland is Noble’s De Vesting. All others were nice tries and certainly built with love, but not ..it :). I can imagine you had that with this Canada sim. I went back the other day and notices a whole field of sorts with breedable stuff, haha, I never noticed that the first time! Still a nice place for some pretty pictures and maybe I should just go visit Canada in RL :)
Also the Canadian wilderness has lots of mosquitoes and other biting insects … but no, I’m not suggesting that these pesky critters be added to a Second Life SIM!! ^^
