About Outdoor Vancouver

Outdoor Vancouver brings the latest news, events, hiking trail guides, company profiles, product info, and more to Vancouver’s outdoor recreation enthusiasts and endurance athletes. We mostly focus on hiking, but you’ll find content about kayaking, camping, running, cycling, rock climbing, scuba diving, skiing, snowboarding, and snowshoeing. The aim is to keep you informed about the outdoors scene around the Vancouver area.

hikingauthorAbout the editor: I was born and raised in the Lower Mainland, and am passionate about outdoor sports. Trail running and hiking are my two favorite activities and I try to get out as often as possible. I also like to kayak, scuba dive, cycle and snowboard.

After searching for a local blog related to outdoor pursuits in Vancouver, I wasn’t able to find a complete resource with fresh content. So, in 2008 I created Outdoor Vancouver. Since then, the blog has slowly grown into Outdoor Vancouver as you see it today. I’m always trying to put up valuable new content so you are always informed about what’s going on in our beautiful little corner of the planet.

I am also the author of the The Great Hikes of Vancouver eBook.
