Bison on the Road from Watson Lake

“What’s there to do in  Watson Lake?” “Go to Liard River Hots Springs, it’s just down the road in north British Columbia“.

Epic Journeys; Coast to Coast, Canada with Via Rail

The term ‘epic journey’ is probably bandied about too often, but travelling from Halifax on the Atlantic coast of Canada to Vancouver on the Pacific shoreline is justifiably considered an epic traverse. Travelling by train with the major Canadian railway Via Rail only adds to this sense of a special journey, it is one which even many Canadians have never …

Roadtripping in the Canadian Rockies; The Icefields Parkway

There are many ways to enjoy the Canadian Rockies, perfect for outdoor adventure activities including, climbing, trekking, biking, or rafting. Patient, and fortunate visitors may see some of the incredible wildlife. However, when the weather is right, the mountains are simply breath-taking, and just standing back to admire them is enough. The rugged peaks are easily accessible, often from the …
