Gwaii Haanas National Park, British Columbia, Canada
What does it do to one to leave modern civilization
and the modern comforts of home behind? To delve deep into the natural world?
To get lost both physically and within one’s own consciousness? Here I am,
someone who has always avoided this kind of “hippy crap” yet writing about
this, knowing that I have found a place to surround myself with pure, natural
beauty. A place to reset myself and make me feel human again. Paddling through
Gwaii Haanas was a transformative experience, a cleansing of the soul, whatever
that means. Floating amongst a sea of life, passing by mystical, dark forests
and towering mountains covered in mist makes for a legendary setting. This is
my story of a journey into one of planet Earth’s hidden paradises. This is the
ancient land of the Haida: Gwaii Haanas National Park, Canada.

This is Victoria, Canada, Vancouver Island’s main city. It’s much more laid back than nearby Vancouver and is a great base to explore other corners of the island. Whether you like Wine, Whales, History or nature, Victoria will stay with you long after you leave its shores. Read More
