Family Outdoor Adventure on Vancouver Island

 

Three years ago, our family took a leap of faith and moved to one of most beautiful places on earth - Vancouver Island, Canada. Shortly after we arrived, in attempt to become familiar with our new home, we began a weekly tradition of hiking and exploring in our amazing natural surroundings, which we dubbed “Adventure Sunday"

 

We invite all members to suggest events, contribute photos, share their experiences and connect as a community.

About this group

Three years ago, our family took a leap of faith and moved to one of most beautiful places on earth - Vancouver Island, Canada. Shortly after we arrived, in attempt to become familiar with our new home, we began a weekly tradition of hiking and exploring in our amazing natural surroundings, which we dubbed “Adventure Sunday”…because that was the day of the week that usually worked best for our adventures at the time. Since then, after hundreds of hours spent together on the trail - spanning every day of the week! -  we have learned a lot about what it takes to prepare for and execute consistently fun, stress free, informative family hikes across most areas of the Island (and counting!).

 

 

 

Throughout our adventures, we have witnessed many amazing sights, become intimately familiar with the land we live on, and developed a deep desire to experience life in a tangible, direct, "get your hands dirty" kinda way. And as a bonus, we have unquestionably found that we are a happier, healthier, more fulfilled family than ever before, as a result. Through sharing the “ins & outs” of adventures with others, we hope to inspire visiting and local families alike to spend more time playing together outside, which we believe has the potential to not only provide genuine bonding time, tons of fun & priceless memories (and photos!), but also help to awaken others to their connection to the earth, and responsibility to protect and sustain it. So, we hope you will lace up your hiking shoes, grab your day pack, and join us in adventuring your way around Vancouver Island…”Adventure Sunday” style.
