It’s hard to let go of my trip to Banff for #attaELEVATE 🇨🇦 because it was a bit of a life-changer between the natural beauty of @banff_lakelouise, the learning experiences provided by @adventure.travel_ & @travelalberta and most importantly to me: the people-focused moments I had because of @indigenouscanada. Back in my feed before my stories of India, you can read about most of those but if you swipe left you can see more from my day with Jason Carter [Cree Nation] and Bridget Ryan. They taught us how to sculpt soapstone into a piece of aboriginal art depicting the iconic mountain ranges of the Banff area. Even though I grew up as the daughter of an artist and I’ve experienced almost all mediums, I was challenged and entertained by this in a way I hadn’t previously been. Not that I need any more reminders of Canada in order to keep my love for the country with me always but I do love seeing the sculpture that I made that day. It always brings a smile to my face because of the association it has to the people I was with when I made it and everything I learned that day — and it’s an activity that wasn’t just for us, you too can book it at the gallery in Banff when you visit the area. Start with the @thecarterryangallery profile for more info. 🎨 #MyBanff#hostedtravel#ExploreAlberta#JasonCarterArt#CarterRyanGallery

Sneaking in under the wire to wish all my Canadian friends a Happy Canada Day! 🇨🇦 .... with this flashback to one of the coolest parties I’ve ever been to in Canada. It was during #attaELEVATE in Banff with @adventure.travel_ where @travelalberta sponsored an incredible night of oh-so-Canadian activities and yum yums. From fat tire biking in the snow to snowshoeing to a make-your-own spiked hot chocolate bar and a truly incredible @indigenouscanada performance - it was the kind of night that made me wish I was Canadian!! I started visiting the country when I was a very young girl as my family drove from where I was born in Vermont to where my mom’s family lived in Michigan. We usually took the route through Canada instead of the USA and yet it was only recently that I truly began to fall in love with the country in a deep and enduring way. That’s why I’m so grateful to be heading back again this month and next for two different projects. I don’t think I’ll feel done exploring Canada anytime soon. ❤️ #canadaday🇨🇦#mybanff#travelalberta#explorealberta#explorecanada

When I woke up at @fairmontcll, the air was so crisp and cold that I knew it would be perfect for some dawn landscape photography. My instinct rewarded me with this vista just to the left of the main building. There’s a stream that flows into the lake that didn’t freeze all the way over and right at the spot where it forms a small pool before joining the lake, was this scene. A near perfectly still reflection. I held my breath, not wanting to cause a ripple as I knelt down to capture the moment with my @sonyalpha a7R II held just above the water. No one else was around and if I’d had longer, I would have carved myself a little chair into the snowbank so I could have sat and meditated over the beauty of nature for a few minutes. Meditation seems to be all the rage these days and yet I still struggle to do it. Unless, I’m out in a location as beautiful as this was, far from the noise of a city and seemingly even further from the stresses that life can bring our way! Can’t wait to get back to Canada a few more times this year to see other areas in other seasons. Alberta is such a stunning province and Canada in general is rapidly becoming one of my favorite countries to explore. 🇨🇦 #attaELEVATE#mybanff#hostedtravel#sonya7rii#sonyalpha

I’m now itching to buy it for travel work!

The peace, serenity & cool temperature of this moment in the woods above @fairmontcll seem very far away at the minute, as I write this caption sitting on the beach in Tel Aviv. After only sharing a snippet or two in my Stories here on Instagram from my job in Israel for a private client — I’ve received an extraordinary amount of hate mail calling me the worst names and a record number of unfollows. . It’s upsetting but it’s not surprising. One of the reasons I tend toward travel jobs in places such as Canada and Europe is that I feel those are destinations which generally inspire people and do not offend. . But in my heart I can’t live as someone who only stays in the safe waters of a calm river, never braving the rapids. If we do not ever challenge our own ways of thinking, and our prejudices, how will we ever make the world a better place? . That being said, if you only want to travel to places of peace and serenity then I would highly recommend @banff_lakelouise. The morning snowshoe hike in which @walkingontravels took this photo of me is one of the most wonderful mornings I’ve had in my many decades of life on this beautiful, complicated planet. It was truly restorative!! ❤️ #mybanff#thisisadventure#banfflakelouise#fairmontlakelouise#obermeyer#hostedtravel#attaelevate

After the hike I describe in my last post and before we checked into the @fairmontcll - our #attaELEVATE#ExploreAlberta group stopped in the town of Canmore for lunch at @blakecanmore. If you’ve followed me for a long time you know food isn’t necessarily MY THING but at the same time when I have a meal that I love soooo much that I’d feel bad unless you get to experience it too, well, then I talk about food. And this is just such an occasion. BLAKE has varying menus depending on what time of day you arrive but one thing that will be consistent is the homemade spices, sauces and the singular twist that goes into every dish. There’s an Aussie flair to the menu but I wouldn’t call it Australian food. Certainly it’s Canadian but then again what is Canadian food?! What BLAKE is is vegetable-forward dishes with a spicy kick and a depth of flavor that will stick with you long after you’ve left. We approached it family style, ordering quite a few dishes from both the lunch and brunch menus and there was hardly a crumb left by the time we were done. From the chili-spiced broccoli to the charcoal breakfast sandwich to the yam salad and the eggs-over-breakfast-fries, our afternoon at BLAKE was a culinary tour de force. Don’t pass through Canmore without stopping and to fuel you up for later, pop in to @ravecoffeecan before you keep going to Lake Louise or elsewhere. This moment is just another reason why MAN I LOVE CANADA [and in particular Alberta]!!!! 🇨🇦 🍴#blakecanmore#foodietravel#explorecanada#travelalberta#shotoniphone#yumgasm#hostedtravel#visitcanmore

#mondaymotivation is dedicated to this special crew, a handful of the incredible, fun creatives I’m fortunate to call colleagues and look up to: •••• @natgeotravel Director of Photography @afarrar, @outsidemagazine Contributing Editor @stephanieapearson, Writer @markonthemap, Fitness Columnist @exerkyourself (Annie Ross), Founder of Adventures In Good Company @marianmarbury, Tour Guide and climber Dolev Schreiber, and MTS Senior Program Director Anne Wood. This group’s stoke blows me away•••• Our worldwide backgrounds are unique, we’re all driven by curiosity to explore the earth’s deepest crevasses and highest peaks, and to share the richest stories. Naturally, that includes pulling on the sweetest jumpsuit I’ve ever worn—pictured here—and crawling into the Rat’s Nest Cave: one of the most extensive know underground systems in Canada at more than 2.5 miles long and still being dug out. •••• #explore#adventure#travel#travelwriting#caving#spelunking#canmorecavetours@canmorecavetours#attaELEVATE#MyBanff#ExploreAlberta#ExploreCanada

First featured Tiny Little Victory! This is @wynnelockhart ice climbing near Banff, Canada. . . She says: "I’m terrified of heights. It’s largely a physiological (rather than mental) response that I can’t control. My heart starts pounding, my body shakes, and my breath quickens. So, ice climbing? Definitely outside of my comfort zone. I cried no less than four times—but I kept climbing, partially thanks to coaching from Nick of Yamnuska Mountain Adventures and encouragement from Breanne of Spirit of the West Adventures… I didn’t really start outdoor adventuring until I was 30. Since then, it’s been women like Breanne—and men like Nick—who have made it possible for me to explore this new love." . Check out her website jessllockhart.com . Location: #johnstoncanyon .

Totally thrilled to make my way back north of the U.S. border to the mega, masterful land of British Columbia! I’ll be road tripping counterclockwise along the incredible @powderhighway with stops at @ferniealpineresort, @kickinghorsemtn, and @revelstoke. Let me know the best pit stops, eh? If you’re along the lasso, let’s make some turns! Or tour. Or put on funky costumes and dance, because closing weekend is upon us. For anyone who is map savvy: Banff NP and Alberta are not along the powder highway! The circuit is in interior B.C., adjacent and west of the formerly mentioned. This photo is from the middle of it all—above Banff NP—and taken on my trip last month in Canada as a media delegate for the Adventure Travel Trade Association. #adventure#travel#explore#attaELEVATE#banffnationalpark#britishcolumbia#canadianrockies#alpinehelicopters#mountainlove#MyBanff#mondaymotivation#ExploreAlberta#ExploreCanada

Apu (swipe right for more - >) . Where will the lines take you? The wilderness surrounding Banff is so vast and extreme that it's hard to imagine how people have lived here for centuries. . Ancient North American cultures have observed these peaks such as we do now, it's easy to imagine how all these massive peaks led to legends, myths and fantasy. . #banff#adventure#adventurelife#exploration#mountainlife#travel#olympus#50mm#photo#Canada#alberta#snow#blueskies#attaelevate#rockies@waira.nuna

Distilled in Fort McMurray at @woodbuffalobrew this "Meatsweat Aquavit" was influenced by Scandanavia, Scotland and Mexico techniques. It is one of the most unique spirits I've come across and of course I had to bring a bottle home. Similar to mezcal it gets its name from the process of hanging washed raw bison meat and allowing the sweat to drip into the spiced base spirit. Serve it straight up with a pinch of salt.

While you were snug in your beds we were having fun, taking photos, freezing our bums off and playing in an ice castle. All three of us who wanted to risk frostbite before sunrise. Oh wait.

After a few days in and around Calgary to #ExploreAlberta before #attaELEVATE, we finally began to make our way up into the Canadian Rockies. I took these photos as part of an ice walk with Jordan Ede of Mahikan Trails. They offer walking and snowshoe tours from the perspective of their Indigenous Culture. From bushcraft to plant medicine, tanning hides and making moccasins, they provide the opportunity for visitors to learn time honoured skills which are part of their Indigenous traditions. Jordan taught us all about the plants that we passed as we walked to the canyon and once we were in the canyon, he pointed out pictographs that are 4,000 years old. It was awe inspiring to see and learn about evidence of people living here that long ago. Now the walk itself might not be for the faint of heart in winter because as you’ll see when you swipe left, in winter it requires crampons. And you’re walking ON what is a deep, raging river at other times of the year!! Right now it’s an uneven yet stunning expanse of solid ice, the color of which changes with the light. All that being said, Jordan provided the equipment we needed and he made sure we were safe. I never felt uneasy and it was so much fun!! The first photo shows the wide entrance to the Canyon, guarded by soaring peaks. The last two show where the tour ends with a few frozen waterfalls in a sort of glen. The spot seemed so unspoiled and wild in a way and yet the pictographs Jordan showed us prove that Indigenous people have been coming here for at least 4,000 years. Mahikan Trails is not on IG either but you can learn more on their website at Mahikan.ca #HostedTravel#ExploreCanada#TravelAlberta#mahikantrails#indigenouscanada#sonya7rii#sonyalpha#grottocanyon

All of the growth in business and in life happens on the edge—not in the middle where your comfort lies. —one of my huge takeaways from hearing Kevin Roberts, founder of Red Rose Consulting, speak at the Adventure Elevate conference in beautiful Banff, CA, last week. Those that know me, know that I thrive off of pushing against my personal boundaries. Applying this concept to business is an exciting lens with which to see opportunity. #attaELEVATE#MyBanff#ExploreAlberta#ExploreCanada#adventure#travel#explore#canadianrockies#mountains#mountainlove#alpinehelicopters#banffnationalpark
