We live for adventure. There’s nowhere else we’d rather be than exploring somewhere new. In particular, we love the great outdoors. Our happy place is on a lake, up a mountain, by the ocean….anywhere and everywhere outdoors, with a preference for beyond the beaten path destinations. We travel in a DIY converted adventure van so even when not hiking, paddling, climbing or snowboarding, you’ll still find us outside.
This page is the gateway to all of our adventure related content from camping climbing to hiking and vanlife.
Adventure Can Be For Everyone
Before arriving in Canada back in 2011, we didn’t know gaiters from giardia. It’s been a steep learning curve with many firsts over the years (first overnight hike! learning to snowboard!). Some lessons have been harder while others were definitely much more fun.
Never would I have guessed five years ago that we would both become managers of an outdoor gear store and, eventually, full-time adventure travel bloggers. Our experience truly proves that outdoor adventure can be for everyone, you just need to embrace it!
A cathedral of trees on Vancouver Island’s West Coast, including some of the tallest and biggest trees in the world. Carmanah Walbran is a place like no other, a pilgrimage here is definitely worth making despite the more difficult access.
Cape Chignecto Provincial Park hosts one of the few multi-day backpacking trails in Nova Scotia. It is quality over quantity in this case, as the Cape Chignecto Coastal Trail provides a beautiful, varied and challenging hike, showcasing the power of the huge Bay of Fundy tides. This is a backpacking trip not to miss.
Including eight lakes and around 55km of paddling, the Powell Forest Canoe Route is an exciting beyond the beaten path multi-day paddling adventure on the Sunshine Coast.
