    Vancouver Sports & Outdoors

    Chartering boats and heading out onto the water is a fairly common in VanC. I took my sister and brother inlaw on a fishing trip.there are many companies orgaising group excursions around Granville Island and Steveston. We went with Bonnie Lee out of Granville Island. The trip lasts 5 hours min which allows plenty of time to catch the local Chinook...

  • Vancouver Canucks

    Vancouver Sports & Outdoors

    The Vancouver Canucks are Vancouver's professional NHL hockey team, and certainly the biggest thing in sports as far as Vancouver goes. I'm personally not a hockey fan, so I honestly don't care when or where they're playing or how well they're doing. I don't even know when the season starts or ends. I don't feel bad either, because there are way...

    Vancouver Sports & Outdoors

    North of Vancouver in the Squamish area is the Stawamus Chief. It is a destination for rock climbers and hikers alike. Rock climbers would simply go straight up the granite face - hikers can take the long way around. I've never actually been on this hike (though I will when I move back to Vancouver); I will update this tip when I actually do this...

  • Berg Lake/Snowbird Pass

    This has to be one of the greatest hikes of the continent. It is certainly a popular one- it's the most popular backpacking trail in the Canadian Rockies and has numerous established campgrounds to handle the very many hikers who do this hike. The hike follows the base of Mt. Robson from the Yellowhead Highway at the mountain's southern side to...

  • Asulkan Valley

    Asulkan Valley is a demanding trail in Glacier National Park that follows a gorgeous meadow-rimmed brook to its source, a glacier in a high basin in the Selkirks. This 13-km round trip hike is mostly flat until about 4 km in, when it begins to ascend a moraine of the Asulkan Glacier; from the start of the climb, the trail ascends over 700 meters in...

A roughly 8-9 km circuit hike will take you to see a spectacular hanging valley with jagged peaks and glaciers and a huge view over Lake O'Hara.To get to the trailhead at Lake O'Hara Lodge, you'll have to first get to the lake- which involves booking...

  • The Towers

    The Towers is a spectacular pointed peak on the BC/Alberta border in Mt. Assiniboine Provincial Park. The top of the peak offers incredible 360 degree views of the Rockies; it is possible to see as far north as the peaks along the Icefields Parkway. The exhilarating view of endless mountains made this one of my favorite Rockies' experiences.This...

  • Boating on Lightening Lake

    One of my favourite memories from my long-ago camping trip to Canada was kayaking on a lake in the Algonquin National Park, so on this trip I was determined to relive that experience with Chris. Manning Provincial Park was a great place to do this as Lightning Lake is just right for this activity – a lovely setting surrounded by forested mountains,...

  • Extreme Skiing

    I recently went to Powder King, which is in the Rocky Mountains, to go snowmobiling with a friend. We stayed however in his brother's bus which is parked at Powder King, a great ski hill. And though I don't ski, I saw a lot of it done here. Powder King has 24 marked runs, but what its more famous for is the "off road" type skiing. You can take the...

  • Go watch a game!

    When I was in Canada in 2003, I went to see Rugby, The Churchill Cup. It was held at University Grounds. The weather was great. And the experience was good, even though I'm not an outspoken sportsfan! It's fun to see the seremonials and to see how people experience watching sports.

  • Rafting with a hottub at the end!!!

    Rafting is fun! It's a different way to see nature. When I was here the waterlevel wasn't that high so it was a relativly easy 'ride'. And at the end of the trip... there's a hottub!!! And that is so nice after being in and out of the (not so warm) water half of the day! Everything you need to bring is a towel and a swimmingsuite! They give you a...

  • Cross Country Skiing

    You may think this is impossible if you come from a hot place, but it's true and fun! It's just like skiing but you only go down small hills. You go up hill and across flat ground too by 'shuffling' your feet on your ski's back and forth! Skis, ski shoes and poles! A great place to try this sport is around Sovereign Lake which is part of the...

  • Shooting

    I really don't like hunting, but I found I was a natural at shooting metal targets in Kamloops with old cowboy guns. In the photo I am shooting a Smith and Wesson gun! I also had a go with a rifle. Though is you want to try this sport out you need to take a member of the ranch with you. If you practice this sport and have a gun licence I’m sure...

  • Snowshoeing

    For those of you that don't like the idea of sliding down a large mountain at a great velocity or having a big board attached to both your feet, here is your alternative: Snow shoeing. For those of you who aren't familiar with this I'm sure you'll remember pictures of people struggling over ice fields with tennis racquets strapped to their feet....
