What is your favorite place in Canada?
Vancouver Island would be my favorite place in Canada since it has everything I like from cute cabins to beautiful hiking trails and of course the surfing opportunities in Tofino.
What is your best travel memory in Canada?
I did an overnight hiking trip to Garibaldi Lake in the summer of 2020. I can say, that was one of my favorite experiences in my life. Seeing the turquoise colored Alpine Lake after 6 hours of hiking was something that I will never forget.
What one thing in Canada should you experience at least once in your life?
Since Canada is home to 60% of the worlds entire bear population, I think everyone should do a bear viewing excursion on their trip to Canada. It is a very special experience and you can do this activity in most regions.
