Whistler Summer suspension bridge
When I arrived in Canada three years ago, I was excited to explore the outdoors. Having lived in Belgium for 21 years, where the highest “mountain” is 694 metres high, the prospect of having the Coast Mountains on my doorstep was exhilarating! On one of our first weekends, Ash and...
Kluane National Park flightseeing tour Yukon
I looked out of the plane’s small window and admired the scenery below me. The landscape resembled a painting, with the river echoing broad strokes across a sandstone-coloured canvas...

Thinhorn Sheep checking out the opposition
