10 trips you should take:
Adventure edition
,
,
From the Canadian Rockies to
the Tian Shan mountains, I've
spent the past five years
seeking out unique adventures
while hiking, cycling and
skiing around the globe.

For some, I've been specific.
Go hike the Tour de Mont
Blanc or cycle the Carretera
Austral.

For others, I've been vague.
Complete a thru-hike or book
a backcountry hut trip.

Either way, these trips are
guidelines, suggestions and
simply ideas. Their purpose is
to encourage you to get
outside and challenge
yourself!

10
Hike and Scramble in my
backyard, the Canadian
Rockies.
,
,
09
Chase the northern
lights in Wood Buffalo
National Park!
,
tip
This is as
remote as it
gets.

It's a wild
journey from
Fort
MacMurray to
Fort
Chipewyan
and into the
park on a
temporary
winter ice
road.

The park is
bigger than
Switzerland
and, in winter,
you can have
it to yourself.
,
08
Hike the Tian Shan
mountains in
Kyrgyzstan.

My favourite route is
the Aksu Transverse.
,
,
07
Go ski touring at
Roger's Pass, in
Canada's Glacier
National Park.

You won't find better
snow anywhere.
,
,
06
Hike or run the entire
Tour De Mont Blanc!

Over 170 kms, the route
passes through France,
Switzerland and Italy.
,
,
05
Book a backcountry hut trip
,
Tip
Rather than
join a
commercial
trip, book the
entire hut for
your group.

My all-time
favourite hut
trip was to
Jumbo Pass in
British
Columbia's
Selkirk
Mountains.
,
04
Complete a
month (or longer)
thru-hike, similar
to our 1200 km
Via Dinarica hike
from Slovenia to
Albania.
,
,
03
Go Heliskiing in Revelstoke, British Columbia
,
Tip
If you're an
expert skier or
snowboarder,
book with
Eagle Pass
Heliskiing.

They ski the
steepest
terrain and
they're not
afraid to send
poor skiers
home.
,
Hike the Faroe Islands.

These islands are
incredible, from the
well-known scenes to
the lesser-seen hikes.
02
,
,
01
Bikepack the Carretera
Austral across
Patagonia, Chile!
,
Tip
Plan six weeks to
cycle from Puerto
Montt, Chile, to El
Chalten, Argentina.
,
While this isn't an
exhaustive list of
adventures I could
recommend, they're 10 of
#myfavoritetrips.

I would recommend them
to anyone.

And please share your own
favourite adventures,
because I am always
looking for inspiration!
