Parks Canada gave us a treat of free entry into national parks this year in celebration of Canada’s 150th birthday and we’re going to take full advantage!
Not only are they kind souls who want us to have lots of fun in the sun this year, they also collaborated with us to create a signature candle with notes of prairie grass, green clover and crocus. So fresh, so clean.
These candles are available exclusively at the Parks Canada Pop-Up Shop at The Forks on:
July 1 10am - 5pm
July 29 + 30 4:30pm - 9pm
August 2 - 12 4:30pm - 9pm
and the Lower Fort Garry Gift Shop throughout the summer.
Just in time for the re-launch of our Glamping collection, we were inspired by Parks Canada to find some of the most Insta-worthy glamping spots in Canada, because if you didn’t post it, did it ever happen?
Clayoquot Wilderness Resort – B.C.
Please mum, PLEASE can we go to Clayoquot? It’s only a three hour plane ride from Tofino. It’s in a rainforest with private flush toilets and is finished with hardwood floors, so it feels like we are outside, but not at all.
Grasslands National Park – Saskatchewan
You like flat? They got that. They also have the original gangstas of glamping: teepees! Stars for days — or, I guess nights… You can even ride a wagon! Giddy up!
Cape Breton Highlands National Park - Nova Scotia
For serious, this is super cool. Scenic hiking trails, canyon views, and the Cocoon Tree Bed. It’s a circle tent floating between trees with a view of the sea. Yas, please!
Riding Mountain National Park - Manitoba
Right here at home, Riding Mountain National Park is killing the glamping game: Otentiks, yurts, micro-cubes and double-tents.
The Otentiks are kinda like a tent, but kinda more like a cabin. It has its own deck and fire pit and sleeps up to six people. Girls’ weekend anyone?
Fundy National Park – New Brunswick
Why haven’t we been here? Fundy National Park has world’s highest tides, you can walk to sea floor during low tide and you find hidden waterfalls. Plus you can sleep in this thing shaped like a raindrop called a Goutte d’Ô. Don’t ask us how to pronounce that.
Long Point Eco-adventures – Ontario
Queen beds, sliding glass doors, running water, private bathrooms… And if you ever decide to leave your mini paradise — why would you when they have mini fridges, which basically means open bars — they have zip lining, mountain biking and canopy tours. Cool!
