Getting the maximum out of Jasper National Park in two days

After a relaxing afternoon the day before, we were more than ready to be a bit more active and finally submerge ourselves in the beauty of the Canadian Rockies. We had two days to discover Jasper National Park and there was plenty to see in that little time. Sadly the weather forecast for the days… Continue reading Getting the maximum out of Jasper National Park in two days

Hiking and salmon spotting at Wells Gray Provincial Park

After a long and tiring drive from the Joffre Lakes Provincial Park, we finally made it to Clearwater; the gateway to the Wells Gray Provincial Park. The evening of our arrival we just went to have some dinner and relaxed a bit in our motel room. We'd leave the exploration of the park for the next day.… Continue reading Hiking and salmon spotting at Wells Gray Provincial Park

Blue, bluer, bluest at Joffre Lakes Provincial Park

When I think of Canada the image of gorgeous, turquoise blue lakes surrounded by lush forests and glacier topped mountains immediately comes to mind.

Unplanned drive through the Vallée des Roses

Not knowing what was ahead of us in the Dades Valley and the Todgha Gorge, we drove passed the Vallée des Roses (Roses Valley) the day before without giving it a second thought. There also wasn’t very much information available on this valley in any travel guides, so it hadn’t really caught our attention. But after Ali’s… Continue reading Unplanned drive through the Vallée des Roses

Discover the beauty of the Dades Valley

It was early afternoon by the time we left the city of Ouarzazate behind us and continued our roadtrip to our next destination: the Dades Valley. We expected magnificent views of spectacular canyons, a beautiful scenic road through the valley and an amazing landscape in which we could stretch our legs and do some smaller hikes. Check,… Continue reading Discover the beauty of the Dades Valley
