Start Here: Make travel an adventure

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in you sail. Explore. Dream. Discover.Mark Twain

Maybe Canada is on top of your bucket list and is one place you always wanted to explore. Or you’re one of the frequent Canadian travellers looking for new travel ideas. Or you live in Canada, as a city dweller who wants to get out and explore the land.

I am incredibly happy that you are here.

My name is Yrene. Adventure travel is my biggest passion and I have completed many crazy journeys in my time. Many are from before I started the Backcountry Canada Travel Blog, and I haven’t gotten around to writing about them. I don’t know whether I ever will write down the travel stories of my past.

How to prepare for your Canadian road trip?

Where do you gather all the information? Travel can seem like an overwhelming subject with so much material available. Of course, the longer you go away, the more you have to think about it and the longer you need to plan.

With Backcountry Canada Travel you have a direct link to Canada and the backcountry. I live here, I travel here, and my whole website is about Canada.

My information makes planning your gap year in Canada, adventure road trip, backpacking trip, and wilderness adventure travel fun and easy, whether it’s a two-week Wilderness Adventure or a one or two-year-long stay.

Planning Is The Key

I know it’s something many people dream about, the bucket list road trip to the Yukon, a 4WD trek up the Dempster Highway to the Arctic, hiking in the Rockies, trekking the famous West Coast Trail, wild camping at a secluded lake in the mountains, sleeping in the wilderness under millions of stars.

These are adventures that I’m doing a lot of. It’s my reason for living at the edge of the Canadian wilderness.

Things You Want To Know About Canada

While supplying you with general travel information, my main purpose is to give you insider tips to show you how I travel in Canada and how I venture into the backcountry.

I want to make sure that you don’t follow tourist traps, but also want to convince you that independent travel is for everyone, singles, couples, backpackers, and adventurers like me. My information and travel tips will make you hit the road into the backcountry with confidence and you will be prepared.

And now having found my website you can do it too! Start planning your Canadian wilderness adventure!

For many people planning a road trip on a well-travelled tourist route is already an adventure. And this is exactly how all backcountry travel should be: a wilderness adventure! I encourage you to spend time in Canada’s backcountry and you will experience a wilderness you can’t even imagine.

The reason I am able to inspire you is that I live in Canada and I do the things many people dream of doing.

If you would like a taste of the old west and go to places not many people get to, you should consider staying at a wilderness ranch for a few days.
