Exploring Yellowknife by Canoe

It’s the sixth day of our 46-day canoe traverse of the Northwest Territories and Nunavut. The purpose of the expedition, at least at the planning stage, was to sate a driving compulsion to explore remote areas of the world. And this roadless zone is the granddaddy of them all—the only way through is by canoe.

Touring Quidi Vidi Brewery

There’s a good chance you wouldn’t even know Quidi Vidi Brewery was a brewery if you came upon it. The average green clapboard, after all, looks right at home among the tiny, colourful houses and fishing sheds clustered around the gut of Quidi Vidi Village.

But inside this modest green building is Newfoundland and Labrador’s most famous microbrewery—a veritable treasure trove for beer fanatics and casual drinkers alike.

St. Lucia Ecotourism

Every spring on the spectacular remote stretch of St. Lucia’s northeast coast known as Louvet, leatherback turtles congregate to lay eggs, spawning the next generation for life at sea. A couple dozen volunteers have gathered to collect what’s washed ashore, clogging the beach with modern society’s detritus—a death sentence for these denizens of the deep.



For Donald Anthony, St. Lucia’s former chief wildlife officer and a participant in this outing, collecting trash is an innate, visceral reaction to protect the island nation’s epic flora and fauna.

Historic Mazatlan Guide

Step beyond any hotel threshold in Mazatlan’s Zona Dorada (“The Golden Zone”) and you’ll be besieged by Americanized food, billowing exhaust, tour-guide hustlers and long-expired Top 40 jams.

But a long walk away from the sunburned throngs reveals the buried treasures of this port city: exotic creatures and characters, charming artistry and the remains of fluctuating empires.
