The GOODS from Fjällräven
Vancouver, BC | Fjällräven is about getting outside and spending time in nature. In BC, that means beaches, forests and mountains. Because we spend so much of our free time in the outdoors, we want to share some of our favourite local adventures that are close to Vancouver. Here are some ideas about how get out and enjoy yourself in the fresh air during the holidays. Need any gear to make your explorations more comfortable? On Boxing Day you get 20% off everything in store (except the Kanken backpack) this promo will run from Boxing Day until Dec. 31st.
SKATE | Grab your skates (or rent them once you’re there) and hit Robson Square for a skate around the rink. Details here.
WALK | We love a lap around Stanley Park this time of year. Time on the seawall, some tide pool gazing, quiet forest paths, and a moment at Siwash Rock are all great ways to connect with nature without leaving the city.
HIKE | Cool damp weather never stops us Vancouverites from enjoying nature – right? Throw on your favourite warm sweater, a coat and some good boots (a nice cozy hat wouldn’t be a bad idea either) and make your way to Deep Cove. The Quarry Rock trail is perfect break-a-sweat terrain if you want it to be, but also doable for most kids. Either way, the view at the top is worth the trip!
SNOWSHOE | Did you know that you can book ahead to hire your own private snowshoe guide at Mount Seymour? You can start at the beginning with a lesson in snowshoe techniques or have someone take you to a specific destination on the mountain (they even have options to add on Chocolate Fondue). Rentals and trail passes included. Check it out.
EXPLORE | Take a drive up the Sea-To-Sky highway and go for a walk along the river bank between Squamish and Brackendale. There you’ll find a raised “Eagle Viewing Dyke” offering a walk with breathtaking views and ample opportunities to see the eagles doing their thing. The mighty birds are in their highest numbers in this area right now, so go say hi. More information here.
