Trip: 5 Alberta Backcountry Adventures that’ll have you excited for winter! 

Spring is here and that means dusting off the ol' hiking boots and putting the skis away 'til next year! We spent this winter season exploring the many unique huts, yurts and cabins our province has to offer! Our Hike365 members and ambassadors experienced it all - from the self-catered, to the luxurious. Whether it was a drive up, or a hike in, each place brought us a different experience and one more reason to love traveling within Alberta.

Hike365 Welcome To: Tanzania

Everyone has their own version of a travel ‘To-Do’ list; some have a few specific spots they can’t wait to see, others’ are miles long and seem to change from year to year. Though I’m certainly guilty of the latter, Africa has always been a place I’ve been dying to see, specifically East Africa. After a few failed attempts to organize a trip to the region, this past Christmas break I finally got the opportunity to travel to Tanzania.

Hike365 Welcome To: Wadi Rum, Jordan

In early December, I learned I had the opportunity to take three weeks off from work, a vacation that long being a rare treat. My head was spinning with all the opportunities of places to visit, things to see, and of course, mountains to hike! Time was running out to plan, so I made a leap of faith and chose to visit the Middle East - specifically, the Wadi Rum desert of Jordan. I've always been enthralled by the desert, the people and the incredible amount of history that has been so influential to modern-day civilization.
