Canada, with its vast territories, is a lot of country to travel in under two weeks, but that hasn't stopped the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge from exploring it all.  

To have a truly well-rounded visit to Canada, Kate and Will packed their days with activities that range from cooking classes to visiting young cancer patients. They also raced each other in dragon boats and planted a tree to memorialize their visit at Rideau Hall. 

On the second stretch of their 12-day North American tour, Kate and Will visited the Somba K'e Civic Plaza where they were welcomed with traditional dancing from the First Nations people.  Will joined a game of street hockey with locals during the visit.

Next, they relaxed at Blachford Lake in the Northwest Territories where the couple help to smoke caribou meat and went canoeing. Surprisingly, Kate took the stern position so she was directing the canoe, while Prince William merely paddled in the bow.

Before moving on to Calgary, the royal newlyweds were made honorary Canadian Rangers, while eating a lunch of Canadian Char fish. 

In Calgary, rumors have it that the couple will attend the Calgary Stampede, a rodeo, but animal activists are urging the royals to avoid the rodeo violence altogether, reports the Montreal Gazette.  

Kate and Will wrap up the trip in California where they will stay for three days, but the specifics about their plans in the United States are still a mystery.
