Alberta is so incredible to explore, there are literally so many beautiful things to do across the province. Best of all, it has a little something for everyone, especially in and around Banff National Park. This is exactly why I wanted to share our Banff itinerary in winter that’ll hopefully help you explore the national … Continue Reading

One of the many joys of staying in the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise is that they’ve got a fair few options here to help you make the most of the beauty that is Banff National Park at your convenience. Like you can decide you don’t wanna travel far and just stick around Lake Louise or … Continue Reading

After our rather amazing drive through the Icefields Parkway and exploring the beauty that is Abraham Lake, we made our way back to Banff to grab our stuff from the hotel and head over to our final stop of the trip – Lake Louise. This time, we would be staying at the iconic Fairmont Chateau … Continue Reading

I feel like this post is gonna be more of a photo diary than anything else because of how utterly beautiful this part of Canada is. Like I could try describing it to you but it’s just one of those places/experiences that’s better shown than described really. (There are, after all, only so many ways … Continue Reading

Staying in Mount Engadine Lodge for the night turned out to be the perfect opportunity to slow down and make the most of our beautiful scenery in Alberta. Our road trip through this gorgeous part of Canada thus far had been fairly packed and having an afternoon with no plans but to drink wine and … Continue Reading

*Bold claim but carry on and you’ll see what I mean… After a rather relaxing evening at Pomeroy Kananaskis Mountain Lodge, we got up nice and early (not too early though) to meet our guide from the day before, Derek. Derek had a different hike for us today and unlike Grotto Canyon, which we’d specifically … Continue Reading

After our full day exploring Calgary (and eating our way through it), it was finally time to bid the city farewell and head out into the Canadian Rocky Mountains of Alberta. Canadian cities are great fun (especially if you know the best places to eat, drink and dance) but the great outdoors is without a … Continue Reading

We had such grand plans for lunch in Calgary. We had recommendations from Instagram, we had locals recommend stuff to us and even did some research in advance. Leaving lunch as late as we did, however, threw all of those plans out of the window as we hot-footed it to what was one of the … Continue Reading

I’m such a huge fan of embracing the seasons. In summer-time, I want to spend every possible moment soaking up the sunshine outdoors. In autumn, I want to marvel at the dramatic change in nature as the leaves turn from what is almost ‘uniform green’ to all the many beautiful hues from reds to oranges. … Continue Reading

Embracing the snow, icicles and the chilly weather is something that’s amazing during a Canadian winter, especially within beautiful spots in Alberta. Now, if you’re anything like me you’ll be hankering to see some of this picturesque side of winter, with the Edmonton Ice Castle being one of the prettiest. I mean, there’s not too many … Continue Reading

Alberta is one of Canada’s most gorgeous provinces that’s perfect for a winter or summer jaunt.  And with so many beautiful things to do in Alberta, it’s an area you should definitely think of visiting as soon as possible. From the tiny little villages, stunning lakes, gorgeous cities to huge swathes of powdery snow – it’s … Continue Reading

Arguably one of the most scenic provinces in all of Canada, Alberta is home to two of the oldest national parks in the world and somehow managed to be be incredibly inviting (and very accessible) despite its jagged, rugged and harshly beautiful terrain. Actually, in retrospect, one might argue that it’s rugged natural beauty that is one … Continue Reading

Jasper National Park is easily one of the most beautiful parts of Canada we’ve ever visited and it’s reason in itself to want to explore even more of the Canadian Rockies. These jagged gigantic mountains make for stunning scenes – couples with beautiful (sometimes turquoise) calm lakes, gorges and canyon are just some of the reasons … Continue Reading

Edmonton was absolutely amazing to visit and one of the coldest places we’ve ever been – which, by the way, is exactly what we were looking for. In winter, you want the snow to stick around (actually, in London, we’d probably even settle for just a bit of snow fall, especially around the Christmas time) … Continue Reading
