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.
Everyone loves those quiet back country moments away from the city, but finding the time to get there can be challenging! We were given an opportunity to stay in the Engadine Lodge Yurt on a chilly Friday night in February.
Winter. There’s usually two sentiments attached to this season that can start as early as September for those of us up here in Alberta: love it or loathe it! I was given the opportunity to try out a new winter activity that had been on my radar for quite some time + is creating quite the buzz these days: Fat Biking.
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.
Looking for a unique, off the beaten path accommodation in the Canadian Rockies as somewhere for you + your crew of girls to use as base camp for an adventure? Look no further than Canmore/Kananaskis' Mt Engadine Lodge!
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.
