As we all know, summer is approaching, and sooner or later there will be a variety of activities that we can all take part in. Here are my top 3 activities that most outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy this summer!
Most outdoorsmen love the summer because it offers great camping conditions. You can enjoy camping anywhere across Alberta, especially Banff! Banff offers several great sites. If you’re not much of a tents person, there are hostels spread throughout the province too that you can stay in with your friends. One hostel I would highly recommend staying in is Mosquito Creek. You can read more about it in my previous blog. While camping in the summer, you can hike across trails that suit your ability. You can experience many new things, and view amazing sites, which is one of the most rewarding parts about it. You can also indulge in activities such as fishing, canoeing and kayaking while camping as well.
2. Mountain Biking
Considering we live in Canada, summer doesn’t last very long. Most mountain bikers are thrilled for this years mountain biking season so they can shred up the trails! In Alberta, one of the best places to mountain bike includes COP, which offers a variety of different trails, both downhill and regular. In B.C, some good places to mountain bike include Fernie and Kicking Horse. Mountain biking is one of the most intense, thrilling, and amazing activities. It is a great workout for your body, its extremely fun, and the views are amazing, especially in the mountains. If you’re looking to get some physical activity, try mountain biking at any of the resorts I had mentioned, but remember to stay safe!
Soccer is a fun sport that billions of people across the world enjoy playing today! All you really need is a good quality soccer ball, a net, and you’re good to go! Soccer is especially fun in the summer because you have access to freshly cut grass and high quality fields. Its also a great way to spend your free time. Whether you’re playing competitively for a team, or on a local field with some friends, soccer can be enjoyed by all ages!
