    A region of wonders great and small

    There’s nothing as wondrous as landscapes that recede as far as the eye can see. There’s nothing like crisp mountain air, or the aroma of a forest. And there’s no beauty like the beauty of an experience that’s fresh and unfamiliar.

    The smell of firs, the distinctive call of the Canadian warbler, picturesque white peaks against clear blue skies – forget gigantic trees, huge predators and massive mountain ranges, even the little things about this region will cast their spell on you. Travel does that to you, allowing you to see everything through eyes wide with wonder, and a mind receptive to the beauty around you. It’s an experience you’ll relive over and over, and we’ll be proud to be there, a part of those memories, for as long as they endure.
