29 Fun and Interesting Facts about Regina

I finally made it to Regina this past summer - the last of the Canadian cities for me to visit. Even though Regina is a prairie city, it's green and lush thanks to 350,000 hand-planted trees. With truly fabulous restaurants, a passionate fan base for the Saskatchewan Roughriders football team and one of the largest urban parks in North America, I'd certainly recommend a visit. Enjoy these 29 fun and interesting facts about Regina. Here's…

Looking Across To The Lake Louise Ski Resort

What to Do in Winter in Lake Louise

Winter in Lake Louise may be cold but it sure is pretty. There's loads to do for skiers and non-skiers alike. A frozen lake with the most beautiful skating rink in the world set against a backdrop of truly stunning mountain scenery may be the first thing people think of when they think winter in Lake Louise. But within 25 - 30 minutes of Lake Louise Village there are an incredible number of outstanding outdoor…

Drive To Deep Cove For The View - One Of The Things To Do In North Vancouver

12 Great Things to Do in North Vancouver, BC

It's amazing the difference eight years can make to a place. Last time I looked, North Vancouver was a sleepy spot. The waterfront was pretty but I'd never have called it vibrant. And after 8 PM there was never a whole lot to do. That's completely changed with the addition of The Shipyards District at the bottom of Lower Lonsdale. Now I'd recommend you fit in as many of these things to do in North…

Spectacular Iceberg Lake

The Iceberg Lake Hike in Glacier National Park

On a busy trip to St. Mary and Glacier National Park in Montana, John and I squeezed in the Iceberg Lake hike in the Many Glacier area of the park. We did it in mid-September when the colours had started to change and after the summer crowds had left. The Iceberg Lake hike is 9.8 miles round trip and the elevation gain is a very manageable 1,275 feet or 389 metres. Finding the trailhead for the…

This Hill Doesn't Quite Fit The Punchy Climb Category

A Cycling Trip – South Bohemian Region Czech Republic

Three days of cycling in the South Bohemian region of the Czech Republic merely whet my appetite for what's available in the country. Lots has been written about the Prague to Vienna bike ride, especially with so many outdoor-adventure companies offering the tour. But the lesser known parts of the Czech Republic like the South Bohemian region are not nearly so well represented online.  Our group of cyclists, made up of five young males and…

Grand Views Of Barrier Lake Before The Viewpoint

The Prairie View Trail – Jewell Pass Hike in Kananaskis

The Prairie View Trail - Jewell Pass hike in Kananaskis Country is a good choice in the shoulder season when you want to get outside but don't want to commit to a long drive. It takes less than an hour to get to the trailhead from Calgary. The Prairie View Trail hike is a very popular one. It's definitely not one of the prettier hikes in Kananaskis Country but in the off-season when you just…

Our Ebikes Climbed 3000 Feet With Power To Spare

A Culinary Cycling Tour of Prachatice, Czech Republic

My Czech lunch of fried cheese and potato finished, I’m ready to head out and burn off some of the 1,000 calories I’ve just ingested. The plan is to spend the rest of the day on a 37 kilometre culinary cycling tour. Make that an ebike tour beginning in Prachatice, Czech Republic. On this beautiful fall day I am biking with six guys – between the ages of 26 and 34. I don’t usually feel…

Galatea Lakes In Late September After A Snowfall

The Galatea Lakes Hike in Kananaskis, Alberta

The Galatea Lakes hike in Kananaskis Country is accessed via the trail to Lillian Lake. This area was hit hard in the 2013 floods but the trail has been rebuilt, with new bridges added and lots of new signage. In fact it's one of the best signed trails I've seen in Kananaskis Country. All told it's 5.5 kilometres one way to Lillian Lake and an additional 1.1 kilometres to reach Galatea Lakes. There is an…

10 Essential Stops in South Bohemia, Czech Republic

South Bohemia is a beautiful area south of Prague that largely flies under the radar of foreign tourists - save for the storybook-like town of Český Krumlov. South Bohemia is definitely not a mainstream destination. And yet it's got an embarrassment of riches including a plethora of fairy-tale like castles, charming villages, pretty man-made lakes, massive forests (the largest in Central Europe), excellent restaurants and plenty of scenic places to drink a pilsner beer. Allow…
