Our Experience

Our first Canada experience was 5 days in the city of Toronto soaking up its multi cultural vibe & excellent dining scene & then taking a road trip to tick of a bucket list item of ours by visiting the spectacular Niagara Falls.

We’ve since returned to Canada where we’ve spent some time wandering around Vancouver, a city of trees & skyscrapers then took a road trip over to Vancouver Island, spending rainy days walking along the dramatic coastline, taking a tour to watch whales & our nights gazing at stars from our tent.

We are currently enjoying the summer in Whistler, British Colombia & are absolutely loving the lakes, mountains & adventures that are just calling out here. Keep a close eye on this section for our blogs on all that we’ve experienced so far as well as hiking guides on the area.
