    August 23 in Canada ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    Von Anchorage bis Banff sind wir bereits 5.831 km gefahren und es werden noch viele Kilometer dazu kommen. Gestern Abend haben wir etwa die Hälfte unserer Gruppe verabschiedet. Heute ist noch einmal ein relaxter Tag in Banff angesagt. Heidi geht zum Friseur; ich erneut zur Massage. Danach kümmert sich Heidi um organisatorische Details (Wäsche waschen, usw.). Vormittags bin ich den „Fenland Loop“ gewandert. Viel Natur; viele Mücken! Nachmittags bin ich dann noch einmal bis zum „Bow River Viewpoint“ gewandert, jetzt aber auf der anderen Uferseite.

    July 18, 2017 in Canada ⋅ ☀️ 14 °C

    After about a 5 hour drive we arrived in Banff. The drive is normally very scenic however there were some very bad forest fires in the area so the sky was filled with smoke however luckily it cleared up for the next 2 days so we got to see the amazing rocky mountains. We stayed in Canmore which is short drive from the town of Banff. We visited the birth place of Banff National Parks, a cave that had been discovered many many years ago with hot sulphur water flowing from the ground and rocks. We then did some exploring through the forests and bright blue lakes in the area trying to see some of the wildlife.Read more

    Wandern, Reiten und Paddeln in Banff

    September 22 in Canada ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    Morgens ging es mit Paula aus Brasilien nach Canmore zu den Grassi Lakes zu einer schönen 2h Wanderung. Wir entscheiden uns für den schweren Trail und der hatte es tatsächlich in sich. Hat sich aber absolut gelohnt.
    Zum Mittag hatte ich dann einen Ausritt gebucht. 2h lang ging es mit meinem Quarter Hoover über Stock und Stein, am Bow River entlang und ein Stück den Sulphur Mountain hoch. Die Strecke war richtig schön. Kurz vor wir zurück kamen, entdeckten wir noch eine ganze Herde Wapiti-Hirsche.
    Da ich immer noch nicht genug hatte, war ich am späten Nachmittag noch mit der Hostelcrew unterwegs zu einer schönen SUP-Tour auf dem Bow River. Mein erstes Mal auf dem SUP und ich bin zum Glück trocken geblieben.

    Abends gab es Burger im Hostel und dann ließ ich den Abend ganz gemütlich mit einem Bier, Chips und meinem Tagebuch ausklingen.

    In Banff

    July 7, 2018 in Canada ⋅ ☀️ 15 °C

    Thought we would get some petrol before heading off today. They take self serve to the nth degree in Canada. I couldn’t work the card reader at the pump so we booked up $60 work in the shop, filled the car and then got a $20 refund for the used amount - crazy and frustrating.

    Off again on the highway - today is Saturday and I expected lots of holiday makers. The road was busy but quite manageable. There are lots of trucks again with bikes, jet ski’s and of course motor homes. The speed limit is 110km/hr which is what I did- I just let the faster ones go for it, as a result most people passed me!

    Mary wanted to see Humming birds. I had looked them up the night before and found a place on the way might be best. This place Canmore is not was rigid as Banff where they frown on bird feeders, after all it is a National Park and they don’t want the moose eating the Humming bird feeders - mainly bowls with sugar water. This was a lovely little town with good walks and parks and a fast flowing Bow river, but virtually no flowers and so no Humming Birds. Mary bought a $30 sun hat - nice.

    Off to Banff and like elsewhere in the National Park - free parking. England won their World Cup match against Sweden last night but I was able to call into a British Bar to watch the end of the Croatia v Russia game. I left before it finished and so missed the exciting penalty kicks.

    Time for walking around Banff - we decided to go to the Cascade Gardens - sounded like home. Lovely garden, lots of flowers but no Humming Birds. We went to the museum, plenty of stuffed animals there, including Humming Birds - maybe we will see some in Toronto?

    Tomorrow its an early start so we can get to the airport in good time and drop the hire car off etc. so an early night was planned. Still I watched the Geelong V Frankson VFL game [streaming on my Mac] from midnight to 2 am - we won!

    Tomorrow we are off by plane to Toronto and the Niagara Falls. Should be great,

    Horseback Riding & Cowboy Cookout

    Ich war heute Reiten! Mit Banff Trail Riders habe ich die Dinner Tour für das Cowboy Cookout gebucht. Eine Stunde Horseback Riding bis zur 3 Mile Cabin, ein leckeres BBQ mit Lasso-Schwing-Kurs und Hufeisen-Werfen und dann eine Stunde wieder zurück zu den Stallungen. Die Tour war umwerfend😍 schaut selbst in den Bildern, die Aussichten waren so schön und das BBQ echt lecker. Würde ich jederzeit wieder machen 🔥🏔Read more

    Canadian Rockies

    October 31, 2015 in Canada ⋅ ☀️ 2 °C

    I went to the Rocky Mountains for a weekend. With West Trek Tours and Papa Wolf (our tourguide) we drove from Friday to Monday to Banff National Park from Vancouver. The tourguides did an amazing job and we met a lot of amazing people and made new fiends. We went to Lake Louise and other Lakes in the park like Minowaka or Two-Jack Lake. It was an unforgettable time and I would go anytime again with West Trek!Read more

    Banff Town

    July 11, 2017 in Canada ⋅ ☀️ 8 °C

    Väl framme Banff Town åkte vi först och tittade på det mäktiga Banff Springs Hotel. Riktigt slott!
    Sen till vårt hotell - Banff Park Lodge inne i stan, som var superfint. Lyxade till det med valet parking. Bubbelbadkar inne i rummet!
    Åt på Chilis - gött! Och gick runt lite i stan sen. Avslutade kvällen med att bada i rummet och kolla på tv. Mysigt!Read more
