Just got off the river after another successful 8 day/320km trip down the Yukon River. We decided to make the most of the midnight sun up here so we got the group up at 2am to paddle the final 45km into Dawson City... It was such a perfect morning after several stormy days, I couldn’t keep the smile off my face!

Probably my favourite picture from the whole canoe trip 😂

Just finished a 320km canoe trip down the Yukon River through the Canadian wilderness, such an incredible experience!! Pretty stoked I get to do it twice more this summer 😀

Top tip for driving in Canada: Always tilt your wing mirrors slightly higher than you would normally, the view behind you is just as amazing as the one in front.

240 years ago Captain Cook was moored up here in Friendly Cove, named after the warm welcome he and his crew were given by the natives. Fingers crossed our float plane can get in for a pickup...
You know what, I think I can get used to these 6am starts #morningzen
Just got back from another incredible trip, this time to Nootka Island for a 5 day hike along the island’s coastal wilderness. This bad boy was our way in and out #dreamjob

Forecast was for sun for the whole 8 days on the west coast trail, turns out the weatherman was wrong on 6 days. Glad he was wrong though, the temperature was perfect and the low clouds made everything all moody!

So this year I’ve given up guiding around the cities of Europe and started guiding somewhere closer to my heart, the Canadian wilderness. I’ve just got back from my first trip, 75km along the West Coast Trail on Vancouver Island and it blew my mind, I can’t stop smiling!

Just settling down with some coffee to start the epic process of sorting thru the 2600+ photos I took. This could take a while!
