Things to do in Haida Gwaii, Canada
Canada’s top travel secret and those who have discovered it will tell you that
it ranks not just in the top experiences in Canada but one of their favorite places
they have been! The remote islands of Haida Gwaii also known as the Queen
Charlotte Islands are coveted for their natural beauty, pristine nature,
abundant wildlife, and indigenous Haida History. Hike through ancient growth
forests, kayak amongst whales and discover an intriguing culture in which
folklore can be found across the islands. This is Canada’s best-kept secret and
here are the top things to do in Haida Gwaii.
Canadian Rockies, British Columbia and Alberta
Since I was a child, I have been exploring the
lush wild valleys, emerald blue lakes and craggy peaks of the Canadian Rockies.
More specifically the parks of Banff, Jasper, Kananaskis, and Yoho. After
countless years bushwhacking through rough trails, camping and photographing
wildlife I feel I might just be able to say “I know” a bit about these epic
mountains and can call myself a local to the region. Although there is so much
more to see outside of the words I write in this post, this can be a definitive
guide for those who are new to the Canadian Rockies and want to experience as
much as they can. So, get ready for one of my most favorite places on earth, my
home, the Canadian Rockies!
The streets are full of life, everywhere you look you see vibrant colours, smokey markets, and people as unique as the land they call home. Oaxaca is where travellers come to get a taste of the real Mexico, the Mexico you won’t find at one of the countries many coastal resorts. There’s no Senior Frogs or beach discos, instead, you will find markets teeming with Mexican food you probably have not heard of and venues playing classic tunes while locals sip on Mezcal. This is the Mexico that will get under your skin, this is Oaxaca.
Victoria, British Columbia, Canada
Exploring historic avenues with haunted hotels, hiking in misty mountain rainforests, picnicking on a remote beach or being surrounded by countless Orca’s as they lunge out of the ocean in a spectacular display during a whale watching tour. 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
