View Northern light/aurora in warm cabin
I'll pick you up from your accommodation at night and we'll drive to our cabin/viewing site (25 mins north of Whitehorse City)... best area with the chance to see Northern Lights (Aurora) here. It has an open field on the north with nothing blocking our view so that the very low Aurora can be seen here. Weather permitting, we see Aurora almost every night as we are located at the best area with the chance to see Aurora just outside of Whitehorse city. We do not have to drive for hours.... Total duration of the tour is about 4.5 hours. We will wait and watch the aurora from the comfort of our rustic and warm cabin... watching from the windows. Go out only if you like (esp to take photos) and come into the cabin as soon as you feel cold. Don't need to worry about the -30 degrees temperature or be cramped in a foggy vehicle. We provide free flow of hot drinks and snacks. Sharp wide-angled photos of you (with aurora on the background) are taken and given to you at no additional fee. We do not need to "chase the Aurora" in a cramp vehicle (which many people can do on their own)... it's up in the sky so we wait for it to appear inside the warm comfort of our cabin! We can start a bonfire (campfire) outside if needed and you can BBQ your own meat, sausages or marshmallows.

The Original Montreal Non-Touristy Pink Bike Tour
We start in the hood with the highest bike ridership in North America, at a half 3rd wave coffee shop, half bike refurbishing shop. We'll head through the Plateau to the foot of the mountain park before cruising down to catch over a dozen works of mural art in the borough with the highest concentration of artists. Works range from 2-9 storeys tall! Off to the entertainment district where the biggest festivals out there take centre stage before checking out the waterfront from a hidden spot by the port. Next is the Gaybourhood. Lively, wild, a pedestrian mall all summer long great for people watching. The main strip houses art installations, music performances and great drag bars. Picnic in a local park with a craft beer is next because... always. Last bit we pedal by typical streets with baroque balconies, winding staircases, mansarded roofs and beautiful green alleyways. We'll hit up a few more parks before we get back to the shop to share with you a list of recommendations for craft beer, local designer shopping, COOL art galleries and the best food. The essentials of travel, quoi. Other things to note: Make sure you bring a bottle of water and dress appropriately, sunscreen wouldn't hurt!
Horseback Riding in the Appalachians
You begin your equine experience with a visit into our sizeable herd of 40 horses, where you will be able to approach and observe the horses in their natural environment, and learn interesting facts about them. Next, each client will be matched with a horse according to their size and experience. You will lead your horse by foot to the stable, and will be able to establish mutual confidence through brushing and other preparations. Once everyone is helmeted-up, we leave the stable for the paddocks. There, mounted and with stirrups adjusted, we give a short lesson on riding techniques. The enclosed paddock is the ideal place for each rider to test what they've learned about horseback riding. After the initiation, we leave for an excursion on the magnificent mountain trails with their splendid view over the Appalachian range. At the halfway point, we will stop on the mountain top to take in the beautiful view. The activity ends by showing appreciation to our horse for the lovely ride. At the end, we invite you to stay a while longer and take advantage of the surroundings and our picnic area, in the event that you packed a snack. Consider trying our other animal experiences with alpacas, dogs and the other inhabitants of our educational farm. Other things to note This activity is offered throughout the year, in all weather. Only children 14 years and over are accepted. For younger children, reserve in our 'equestrian initiation' activity. The trail ride happens principally at a walking pace, with some trotting if possible, but generally not galloping.
Intro to Pottery wheel
With guided, professional instruction, you'll have a fun and creative time making an item out of clay on a pottery wheel. I will show you how to work with the clay, get it ready for the wheel, center it, and eventually start shaping. Usually students can make either a small bowl, plate, mug or vase on their first try. You will get up to 30 minutes of time on the wheel which is plenty to create one item, and then you can add accents to your piece i.e. handle and you'll get to handbuild for the remainder of the time (add accents to your piece). You can take the pottery home with you the same day you make them, or—if you'd like—I can fire your work, glaze it, and ship it to you for a small fee. I also offer other experiences: canvas painting, glass fusing, hand building with clay, mosaics, glow in the dark painting, pottery painting, silkscreening. ***Drop me a note if you'd like alternate time for your appointment.****
Snowshoe hike and traditional dinner and stories around the fire pit
Discover the Quebec forest in snowshoes, the nature and charm of a fire outside in the winter and enjoy a good traditional dinner like the explorers and the hunters of the old time. We will follow the same trail as the explorers and wood runners of the old days and explore a majestic canyon with sheer ice walls and beautiful scenery in the heart of an ancient forest filled with hundred year old pine trees. All the equipment is provided and all you have to do is be well dressed to enjoy the climate while I guide you through wonderful scenery and teach you surviving skill in the wilderness. We observe nature and wildlife on an unforgettable snowshoeing adventure. Little survival class and old-fashioned flames cooking. The schedule and duration of the hikes are flexible depending on the weather and your availability. Children are welcome :) You will come back home filled with your heart filled with memories, relaxed and with a belly full of good food.
Discover Toronto like a Local
Join me to explore Toronto's history and present-day on a walking tour around the city's downtown, Financial District, and Old Town. One of the most multicultural cities in the world, our experience will cover a variety of different styles, and how it translates into Toronto's architecture, culture, and street art. I've been hosting this tour for over 5 years, but only recently made it into an Airbnb Experience. Our small group walking tour starts at Yonge-Dundas Square in the heart of Downtown and then heads to the City Hall and Old City Hall. Our tour is heavily focused on Toronto's architecture and art around the city. Highlights will include but are not limited to the PATH (Underground City), Union Station, Brookfield Place, Flat Iron Building, and the very interesting buildings and stories from the Financial District. We will finish our small group tour at St. Lawrence Market, considered one of the world's great food markets. NOTE: This tour does not end where it begins. As Toronto is constantly growing, my tour goal is to take you to all the landmarks that our city is famous for, but also very important, all those hidden gems only available through a unique insider look.
