Saskatoon SUP On The South Saskatchewan River

6 Things You’ll Want to do in Saskatoon This Summer

Saskatoon is a fun, dynamic place to visit in summer with lots going on. You can feel the energy in the music and festivals, taste the local food at farmer's markets and restaurants, and experience soft adventure within the city limits. I think you'll be surprised at what Canada's fastest growing city offers. Stand Up Paddleboarding in Saskatoon I hadn't paddled 200 metres before I hear a splash. Then laughter.

10 Things to Do in and Near Glacier National Park

Glacier National Park in Montana gets top marks for natural beauty. In fact it's been called the Switzerland of America. To justify that name consider this; over its one million acres there are 175 named mountains, 200 named waterfalls, 25 named glaciers and literally hundreds of lakes and streams. And the area surrounding the park is also a hotbed of beauty.  Glacier National Park is a fantastic destination in summer, offering an incredible range of…

5 Things You Must Do on a Visit to Ottawa

Ottawa. Canada’s Capital. The city I grew up in, have a soft spot for - and one of the few places in Canada where I’d happily live again. Every time I go back, I marvel at how vibrant the city has become. How much there is to do. I leave thinking next time I come back I’ll leave time to wander the museums I’ve never set foot in, sip coffee in cute locally run cafes,…

5 Things to do in Galway

Galway has been the starting point of a couple of trips for me including a recent six day hike with Wilderness Ireland and a self-guided bike ride with John in Ireland's Connemara region a number of years ago. Galway is a great jumping off point to explore western Ireland. And it's a snap to reach by train or bus from the Dublin airport (it takes about three hours). Once you're in Galway, the only time…

Marrakesh Places to Visit When You Only Have a Day

Marrakesh - just the name conjures up exotic images - snake charmers, colourful souks, palm trees, classy riads. If only that was the reality. Marrakesh was our least favourite stop on a two week Morocco tour largely because it's turned into a noisy, polluted city. In the last five or six years cheap Chinese made motorbikes have been permitted inside the medina, so now do you not only have to dodge them, but you have…

What You Can do on a Quick Visit to Inuvik, NWT

Inuvik is a small town located on the east channel of the Mackenzie River at the end of the Dempster Highway in the Northwest Territories. While it isn't exactly a booming tourist destination it's poised to become one, at least by northern standards. In just 23 days the road to Tuktoyaktuk opens so anyone with an adventurous bone in their body should think about adding this remote part of Canada to their bucketlist. While Inuvik…

Things to do in Panama City, Panama

On our trip to Panama we had about a day and a half in Panama City. As much as I prefer to bypass cities, especially big cities I also like to build in a day at the start of a trip in case of flight cancellations, delays...the usual. It was the first time in Panama for our group of four so although we could have spent the better part of a day hanging out by…

5 Great Things to do in the Crowsnest Pass Area

The historic Crowsnest Pass Area is made up of five small towns - Hillcrest, Bellevue, Frank, Blairmore and Coleman. The area is easily accessible via Highway 3 from Calgary and Lethbridge, and also from nearby Sparwood and Fernie, the closest towns in British Columbia, 41 and 70 kilometres respectively to the west. If you stay on Highway 3 and never venture into the small towns or onto the backroads you'll miss the best of the what the…

100 Places to Visit in Canada This Summer

Canada is the second largest country in the world. From St. John's, Newfoundland to Victoria, British Columbia it's roughly a distance of 7,400 kilometres. And from Vancouver heading north to Whitehorse in the Yukon Territory, it's 2,400 kilometres. Add another 1,200 kilometres to reach Inuvik, the last community of any size before the Arctic Ocean. My point is Canada is huge. It's best to focus on just a few areas if you plan to visit. Here…

How to Have a Fantastic Weekend in Prince Rupert

Prince Rupert isn't the kind of place you drop into. It sits above North America's deepest ice-free harbor at the western terminus of Yellowhead Highway 16. People who make the eight-hour drive from Prince George are coming for a reason. Fishermen love the cool, clear water for its abundance of fish. I love this town for its proximity to the Khutzeymateen Grizzly Bear Sanctuary - the world's first preserve to protect grizzly bears - and…
