Finding Adventure

“Another glorious day, the air as delicious to the lungs as nectar to the tongue.”

A big motivation for our travels is to give ourselves the opportunity to hike and drink in nature’s beauty. Hiking is our soul food;  it replenishes our spirits in the same way that food replenishes our bodies. Hiking through a forest, across a meadow, or up a mountain is one of our favourite ways to truly savour life.

Here we’ll share with you some highlights of our adventures, as well as more detailed blogs about our favouorites. We hope that our musings will encourage you to seek out and savour your own outdoor experiences!


This vast country offers innumerable opportunities for fabulous hiking adventures. We'll help you choose the right one for you.

This is one of Canada’s best kept secrets. A vast wilderness of prairie grasslands and rugged hills, with great hiking and beautiful solitude. The lack of visitors – particularly relative to the immensity of the space – only enhances the emotive power of the place. The grandeur of the immense spaces reaches deep into one’s soul, acting as a balm against the manic pace of modern life and reminding us of nature’s healing powers.
