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!
Warm waters, protected bays, towering rock bluffs and idyllic islands framed by a mountainous backdrop….Desolation Sound is simply drop dead gorgeous. Here’s what we got up to on a kayaking trip to Northern Desolation Sound.
Kayaking in Columbia Bay, Alaska, is an unforgettable experience. It offers the chance of floating past huge icebergs, with a backdrop of a glacier and incredible snow capped mountains. Discover this amazing one day tour in Valdez, Alaska!
Valhalla. Majestic and mysterious all at once, the name of this park alone inspires wonder. Exploring Valhalla Provincial Park is something of a magical experience too, as we found out on this summer hiking and paddling adventure.
With beautiful views, well-maintained facilities, a convenient location and just the right amount of challenge, the Sayward Canoe Circuit is a great choice for a paddling trip for novices and veterans alike. It’s a unique Vancouver Island paddling experience to rival other canoe trip experiences in British Columbia.
