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!
Weeks 12 and 13 on our Western Canada road trip included Canada Day celebrations in Dawson City followed by a two week 740km canoe trip down the Yukon River from Whitehorse back to Dawson
The easiest way to see the tallest mountain in Canada, Mt Logan, is to take a small plane flight above Kluane National Park. It’s an awe inspiring experience you will never forget.
Imagine a place with all of the incredible mountain vistas of Banff National Park but none of the mass tourism. This is Alberta’s Kananaskis Valley and the best way to explore is from Mount Engadine Lodge, a road accessible wilderness lodge with all the comforts of civilisation.
