I grew up with in an ‘airline’ family, moving regularly with my Dad’s work. Both my parents had a taste for adventure travel, and we had some fabulous, unique trips as a family. I have been inspired by many great travelers, both contemporary and historical, but I greatly admire the first explorers of Canada. Being born and raised on the west coast of Canada, I found the stories of these first adventurers fascinating. Don’t be put off and think that active holidays are only for the ultra-fit! If the idea of an active holiday appeals to you then do it! Set yourself a goal to bring your fitness level up. The satisfaction you will experience will be worth it.
