This is anything but a mainstream vacation. LE-LA-LA CANOE ADVENTURES in Victoria, British Columbia, takes paddlers on a two-hour harbor outing in a 42-foot Yagana’wala dugout canoe. The Yagana’wala (easy for you to say) is carved from a single cedar tree and is an authentic First Nations canoe. As for the native guide who leads the scenic tour, he’s authentic, too. Wearing traditional regalia, he regales fellow paddlers with legends from his people’s past. $45. (250) 812-7103,
