Canada is home to an incredible amount of weird and wonderful places to vacation. Whether you’re looking to get back to nature or live it up in the big city, it’s home to every possible type of accommodation.

We took a cross-country trip via Airbnb to find some of the coolest listings around. A treehouse, a castle, a micro-house and a yurt are just a few of the options available.
