Make Your Next Trip Extraordinary

My Extreme Week in Canada: Photos

by Wendy Perrin | August 5, 2015

I’ve been in British Columbia this past week, being dragged along on every adventure-sport activity you can imagine. My son Doug says he wants to move to Whistler because “everything you could ever want is there.” Of course, that all depends on whether what you want is to climb a mountain peak, speed down an Olympic bobsled run, or scream across the longest zip-line in the U.S. and Canada. Before Whistler, we were in the Discovery Islands, where we soared in helicopters and seaplanes, snorkeled with pink salmon, and fished for chinook.

While I’m not exactly Ms. Extreme Sports, I’ve been enjoying this shot of Canadian adrenaline with my boys. Here’s a look at some of the fun experiences we’ve had this week, along with a few of the mouthwatering B.C. foods we’ve been tasting. I’ll be sharing much more detailed information and advice about all these places and activities soon, so stay tuned. In the meantime, enjoy these Instagram photos from our trip, and let me know in the comments where your next great adventure will take you!

    Looks like a fantastic week! I took my daughter snorkeling with salmon in Campbell River 10 years ago this month, when she was 7, and then up to Whistler for ziplining, flightseeing, and other summer adventures in the mountains a couple years later. Those are priceless memories…and this reminds me of how time flies ! Thanks for sharing pics from your family’s adventure!
