    Although I really love tent camping, my husband does not. He does however love being outdoors and exploring new parts of BC, so how did we get to explore the amazing Porteau Cove Provincial Park without the tent? Simple - we booked a weekend at the one of the Olympic Legacy Cabins. Cabin camping is the perfect way for non-campers to camp: you still get the opportunity to unplug from everyday life and relax in the outdoors but without sleeping in a tent. Continue Reading

    I remember visiting Terrace, New Aiyansh and Greenville, in Northern BC years ago. A long drive of about 15 hours from Vancouver, just under 1,400 km and multiple stops I will never forget. My father did his residency program in the smaller towns of both New Aiyansh and Greenville, small towns of no more than 2,000 residents each. Located right on the Skeena River with an abundance of nature, it makes for a great way to escape the city life and find solace in the most remote corners of beautiful British Columbia.
