The French River & The Lodge at Pine Cove

Ask a Canadian where they’d send their friends and/or guests to experience Ontario’s great outdoors and many would suggest Algonquin Park or perhaps Muskoka or the Kawartha Lakes. They’d recommend swimming, canoeing and kayaking since Canada’s most populous province is blessed with oodles of warm lakes and sparkling rivers. While cottagers and tourists flock to these popular destinations, a growing number are now seeking out Northern Ontario’s French River. The first to be designated a…

The Glamping Experience at Mount Engadine Lodge

I admit that I was already a fan of Mount Engadine Lodge before I tried their new glamping tents. I'd been twice before; the first time on a winter trip before we'd even moved to Calgary where we lucked out with a weekend of live music and the second in September a few years ago when we took my elderly mother-in-law, promising her moose sightings. "We" delivered with at least four moose seen in the…

Long Beach Lodge – The Perfect Base for Tofino’s Outdoor Paradise

With temperatures generally above 10° C through November, and with the bulk of the tourists gone, fall is a beautiful time to plan an adventure from Long Beach Lodge in Tofino's outdoor paradise. Throw on one of their complimentary rain jackets and get outside! Surfing out of Long Beach Lodge Let’s start with the surfing. When my husband and I visited the lodge back in June, we were eager to try some surfing lessons. Now…

The Camp Denali Experience in Alaska

If you're looking for an uncommon wilderness experience that blends the magic of Denali National Park, with a stay in a wilderness camp unlike any other, plan to visit Camp Denali near the end of the only road in the park. While it's hard and time consuming to get to the lodge it's well worth the effort. It is here that you can marvel at Denali itself while lying in bed; where you can taste…

A Tiny Room with Big Value at Whistler’s First Pod Hotel

Whistler's Pangea Pod Hotel is the first pod hotel in Canada to open. Its tiny pods are chic, well designed and big on value. The Pangea Pod Hotel is about half the price of a conventional hotel in Whistler and a giant step up from what you'd get in a hostel. With its prime location in Whistler Village just minutes away from the gondola, it's likely that the pod hotel will cause some commotion in the hotel…

An Unforgettable Weekend at Purcell Mountain Lodge in BC

"We call it the Purcell stair climber" exclaims Kevin Blades, a veteran mountain hiking guide at Purcell Mountain Lodge. The approach to Porcupine Ridge, our goal for the day, is certainly steep at times but with high alpine scenery that's in the world-class category, it's not a hardship to be hiking here, even if it means I'm sucking wind at times. In fact John and I reveled in the fact that we were able to…

Long Beach Lodge in Tofino: A Coastal Paradise Rain or Shine

How do you know a stay away from home is memorable? When you enjoy yourself so much despite the pouring rain and incessant cloud cover that you’d go back in a heartbeat. That’s how I feel about my time at the stunning Long Beach Lodge Resort in Tofino, British Columbia. Disappointed but not deterred by the weather forecast, my fiancé Michael and I pulled off the highway up a long, paved driveway marked by a…

A Spectacular Long Weekend at Great Bear Lodge

Travel by float plane out of Port Hardy at the northern tip of Vancouver Island, and in just 30 minutes you can be landing on Smith Inlet and maneuvering up to a floating dock adjacent to Great Bear Lodge - smack dab in the middle of true Canadian wilderness. The remote Great Bear Lodge, owes its origin to Tom Rivest, a naturalist with a vision. In 1999 he first started receiving lodge guests while he…

Camping Hacks: How to Rent Your Neighbour’s Trailer

Most of my friends understand my love of the outdoors but can't wrap their heads around sleeping on the ground in a tent which may or may not leak and may or may not have a bear sniffing around it late at night. Eating dehydrated food cooked on a one burner stove and forgoing a cold glass of white wine has even less appeal. Mention the word black fly, horsefly or mosquito and their eyes roll…
