Catch that spirit of exploration here in the West. Take a detour into the lesser known regions where your social feed has not yet travelled to refresh and reconnect with your inner soul. Adventure more, take a discovery leap and don’t fret, as these places have guides, too. Be ready for stress releasing peaks in all directions, river and lake paddles, and earn that long lost summer camp badge that says ‘Pioneer.’
Fly into Prince George, the Northern capital of B.C. and head out to a land of big lakes and wilderness fly-in cabins. Lakes District Air will take you into the sticks where bush planes replace Uber, whisking you away to your own mountain lakeside getaways. Take some slow time here to fly fish and enjoy some good old kick-back time around the campfire in your Carhartts. Let the beauty of nature replace your devices.
Fly to Prince George with WestJet offering 34 flights every week from Vancouver.*
Fly into Yellowknife, N.W.T. to take on a mighty river and retrace footsteps of early day pioneers and mountain men. If you weren’t aware, it’s Canada’s 150th birthday which is a perfect time to head to the little visited Nahanni National Park Reserve. This is a place where you can feel at peace with nature, capture memories of the untouched landscape and experience a wicked tickle for your inner explorer.
WestJet flies to Yellowknife twice a day from Calgary and Edmonton.*
Terrace, B.C., is the jumping off point for your spring powder pleasure—cat ski, heli-ski and ski touring abounds in this majestic mountain country in British Columbia. Scale is just different up here, humbling those who visit. Giant peaks rise above the sky in all directions, you stare at them and let your guides at Northern Escape Heli Skiing and Skeena Heliskiing steer you into pockets of powder-filled paradise. You can also take a ski touring junket into your own playground, called Hankin-Evelyn Backcountry Skiing Recreation Area.
WestJet flies to Terrace B.C. with 13 flights a week from Vancouver.*
The big ski town on the prairie, Calgary is the starting point for the famed Powder Highway which is a dreamy road trip that fills your cup with craft everything, in cool mountain towns dotting the snowy region. It will be tough to keep your eyes on the road, as summits to ski and rad mountain bike descents will have your head spinning. But you’re on a mission, dropping into towns like Fernie and Golden, B.C., for spring fever. Zany is an understatement for events like the Slush Cup and Carnival, packed full of snow, suds and tunes. After your day of shredding the slopes, this highway is known for some of the best patio time. Don’t forget the coconut butter on this B.C. Rockies sampler.
WestJet flies to Calgary with 115 flights a day from 26 Canadian, 12 US and 4 international cities.*
