Exactly a year to the day, I found myself back in Canada’s breathtaking Alberta. I have traveled to 80+ countries and I have simply never seen such stunning natural landscape in all my life. Words can not describe the soaring Rocky Mountains encapsulating pristine lakes, fast flowing aqua blue rivers and cute towns with wooden buildings. […]

      A Canada road trip Itinerary – Calgary to Vancouver

      Canada has been high up on our agenda for just as long as I can remember. Having spent the last three weeks in this incredible country, I don’t know why we haven’t made it a priority sooner. Glass mirror lakes, lush forest, rolling blue mountains, intriguing wildlife and adventure activity galore, it was the best […]

        Whistler with kids

        Whistler is a cute village an hour and a half north of Vancouver. Famous for being the largest ski resort in North America, and home to the winter Olympics in 2010, Whistler most certainly feels like the adventure capital! As we visited in summer, we had a completely different perspective. Nonetheless there was plenty to […]

          Westin Bayshore, Vancouver

          Vancouver was the final stop on our three-week Canada road trip. We knew we were going to be tired and needing to relax, so we were really excited to be staying in one of Vancouver’s best hotels, The Westin Bayshore. Based on the waterfront, the hotel is in prime position for some of the most stunning […]

            Tigh-Na-Mara, Vancouver Island

            I’ve heard so many great things about Vancouver Island, I felt we couldn’t miss it on our Canadian itinerary. As usual, we didn’t allow enough time on the island to see all of the highlights. At a guess, I would say four to five days would be a good period of time. We stayed at […]

              Kelowna with kids

              I completely underestimated Kelowna before visiting. I hadn’t realised it was a city and only allowed two days. That was a big mistake because there are so many great activities we missed out on. I blame our hotel for being too nice to leave! Realistically, the area deserves at least four nights to fit in […]

                Revelstoke with Kids

                Revelstoke is a cute little town in Canada’s, British Columbia. Being only a few hundred kilometres between Vancouver and Calgary, it’s the perfect place to stop and explore for a few days. Better known for it’s skiing, Revelstoke with kids is equally as enjoyable in the summer. We spent three nights exploring which was the […]

                  Sunshine Mountain Lodge, Banff

                  Sunshine Mountain Lodge is based at Banff Sunshine Village, just a fifteen minute drive from Downton Banff. Based high up in the Rocky Mountains, the drive is incredibly scenic. Thousands of pine trees sore into the sky, and at one point on the way, we were looking down on dense forests and that was before […]

                    Johnston Canyon, Banff

                    Johnston Canyon (JC), based in the Bow Valley of Banff National Park, is a wonder of nature. A one kilometre long walkway follows the canyon from JC resort to an incredible waterfall suspended on the side of the rock formation. With over 10,000 years of water and rock battling, the canyon walk is most certainly […]
