View From The Meadows At Mt Engadine Lodge

9th Blog Giveaway: One Night at Mount Engadine Lodge

One of my all-time favourite lodges is Mount Engadine Lodge in Kananaskis Country. I have stayed for a weekend on three occasions now, twice in winter and once in the fall. Visit the lodge in the summer if you're into hiking and nature. Some truly exceptional hiking trails are practically on the lodge doorstep; cue Tent Ridge, Chester Lake and Burstall Pass for starters. If you go in the fall - like I did with…

Some Pitches Really Get Your Attention

Giveaway – Two Passes for the Mt. Norquay Via Ferrata

If you're looking for adventure in Banff National Park then you've got to try the Via Ferrata at Mt. Norquay. Even though you're clipped in, it can be a little nerve-wracking at times. But also empowering. What you get with this giveaway My seventh giveaway out of ten to mark 10 years of blogging is a pass for two people to do the Explorer Route on the Mt. Norquay Via Ferrata. Over 2.5 hours enjoy…

The King Creek Ridge Hike in Kananaskis Country

The fabulous 3.5 km King Creek Ridge hike off of Highway 40 in Kananaskis Country offers truly exceptional mountain scenery. But it's definitely not a beginner or even a family-friendly hike. Once you reach the ridge itself after about two kilometres of hard, steep hiking, the grade moderates and the rest of the hike is positively glorious. It's one of the best ridge walks I've done - though I'd also highly recommend nearby Pocaterra Ridge.…

Happy 10th Birthday to HikeBikeTravel + 10 Giveaways

This month I am celebrating the 10th anniversary of my blog - HikeBikeTravel. I'm in awe at how quickly the years have slipped by and the fact my blog is still very much around. I'd like to say a big thank you to all who have stood with me (and put up with me!!) since the beginning.  When I started I knew nothing about writing, photography, marketing, SEO, social media, pitching - in fact anything…

The Mount Lady MacDonald Hike near Canmore

The Mount Lady MacDonald hike out of Canmore is one of a handful of early season hikes that delivers a great workout along with spectacular views. It's a popular trail as we discovered, with most hikers turning around at the heli-pad. If you don't mind a little scree - or snow if it's spring time, then continue climbing up the mountain until you reach the knife-edge ridge. You'll have to decide if you've got the…

What the Rocky Mountaineer Train Ride is Really Like

The day started early. I left the comfort of my luxurious Fairmont Hotel Vancouver bed to be whisked in a bus along with hundreds of others to the Rocky Mountaineer train terminal. And that's when the magic unfolded. Walking into the airy train terminal, John and I were immediately greeted with three things - glasses of orange juice, a coffee bar and gorgeous music coming from the grand piano. It didn't take long to get…

The Centennial Ridge – Mount Allan Hike in Kananaskis

If you're looking for a long out and back day hike in Kananaskis Country then the Centennial Ridge trail up to Mount Allan should fit the bill. If you want to turn it into an epic day, make it a one-way hike and descend to Dead Man's Flats from Mount Allan but you'll need a car shuttle to do that. Finding the trailhead(s) for either end of the Centennial Ridge Hike If you do the…
