Explore BC

Follow four travel bloggers—two teams of two—on a month-long adventure as they Explore BC and its many unique experiences.

Team Orca consists of Brendan and Rob, hailing from Rocky Mountain House and Ottawa, respectively. Both are seasoned world travellers and this will be the first time they’ll be meeting each other. Team Eagle is Dina and Ryan, a husband-and-wife duo from London, Ontario, who have visited more than 40 countries together since 2009, yet have never visited British Columbia.

Over the course of four weeks this summer, these four bloggers will attempt to experience much of what BC has to offer: everything from white-water rafting and whale watching to gliding and rock climbing; from winery tours and brewery tours to historic museums and aboriginal experiences. Be sure to follow the adventure on our Facebook page and have your say in where they go and what they do!

1 MONTH, 2 TEAMS, 1 EPIC BC ROAD TRIP: EXPLORE BC!

From June 22-July 22, we sent four bloggers around the province to experience many of BC’s iconic (and off-the-beaten-path) destinations and activities. And that they did! In four weeks, Team Eagle & Team Orca travelled 7,729 kilometres (4,802 miles), visited 67 BC communities and experienced countless BC activities. Plus, for every 10 new Facebook fans during the campaign, we pledged to plant a tree with Tree Canada. We were able to plant nearly 800 of them – thank you!

Curious about where our bloggers went and what they saw? Read on (& check out their photos!):

We recently had the pleasure of visiting a stunning part of British Columbia called Haida Gwaii. While we were there, we went for a tour with Morseby Explorers to visit The Ancient Village of Skedans on Louise Island.

We had a tour of the village and learned about the history of the place. The photo above is one of the villages frontal totem poles and each ring represents a potlatch that was hosted by the chief.

The top of Blackcomb Mountain in Whistler area of BC is still covered by snow in early summer like now. We never tried to jump high on snow before, because, well… it’s difficult, and the heavy winter coats often make us stiff. So here we go, took off our coat, and jumped as high as we can from 1 foot tall soft snow!

I think Ryan won! But, what about you? Can you jump higher than Ryan? On snow, of course!

One thing that we love about BC is the wild life. We went to check out the Painted Chasm near Clinton today, and we saw 3 wild goats relaxing on a rock outcrop. Here’s one of them. A beauty, isn’t it!

BC Place, Vancouver’s stadium - The sign really speaks to us!

When you come to Vancouver you have to dive into deep dishes of sushi. That said, don’t get too crazy with your order because at the all you can eat, you have to pay if you can’t finish and when you’re staring down the table at countless rolls and you’re already full, it’s not pretty!

Vancouver’s oldest neighbourhood, the trendy Gastown, on Saturday night. Pretty, isn’t it!
