Set on the West Arm of sapphire-blue Kootenay Lake in southeastern BC’s Selkirk Mountains, Nelson is often called one of Canada’s prettiest and fall is the best time to visit. Mix in Victorian architecture, hearty locals, and urban escapees, it is no surprise why we love this laid-back mountain town. Head to our IG story for 8 other BC towns you should visit this season—you’ll find plenty of autumnal delights: from alpine architecture to harvest-time hikes and farm-fresh feasts. .

Tucked into Montreal's vibrant downtown is the Basilique Notre-Dame De Montreal, the first Gothic Revival style church in Canada. It’s stunning interior is complemented with numerous interpretive programs that allow you to learn about and experience the unique location in interesting ways. A fan favourite is their “Take a Seat at the Organ” event that allows you to listen to the incredible melody of the organ while experiencing the amazing architecture of the church in a small group setting. #ExploreCanada⁠ ⁠ 📷: @photos_fera⁠ 📍: @montreal, @tourismequebec⁠ ⁠ #MTLMoments #QuebecOriginal

Think ice cream season ends on August 31? Think again! You need to get to @sargentsundae to try their pumpkin soft serve before fall is through. 🎃 📸: @thedreamcreamwpg #exploremb #onlyinthepeg #explorecanada

My friend Kena asked these two amazing humans to model for us for a Couple minutes at #lakelouise in Canada. He was hesitant 😂, but she was all about it! So glad we did it. @wandertheunknown thank you so much for posing for us. 🤗 #momentsovermountains #adventurers #liveyouradventure #adventuregirls #offthebeatenpath #getoutdoors #wandermore #letswander #roamtocreate #thewandererscommunity #pacificnorthwestisbest #pnwadventures #pnwphotographer #pnw #canada #alberta #banff #canadian #explorecanada #canadaexplored

One of the most incredible moments from our trip...making it to the top of the Big Beehive Hike for this incredible view of Lake Louise {for the record, this hike was no joke and I had no idea if I was going to make it! But I had my pace setters motivating me all the way} 😎🐶🇨🇦

It's been awhile since I took some time to dive into my camera. With a new full time job I come home mentally and physically exhausted, it's hard for me to find the will to do anything after work. Hopefully after some time that will change. Something as simple as sticking a flower in the grass and taking photos gets my creative juices flowin 😂 • • #photography #photoshoot #photographer #photoshop #lightroom #flower #flowerphotography #landscapephotography #naturephotography #macrophotography #nikonphotography #travelphotography #trees #nature #manitoba #manitobaphotographer #manitobaphotography #winklerphotographer #winklerphotography #winnipegphotography #creative #art #inspire #dream #passion #happy #love #kerrigrimolfsonphotography #sunsetphotography #explorecanada

If I were to ever move out of Chicago, one of my top choices would for sure be Vancouver! I love the idea of city life with the ocean and mountains so close! Where would you move if you had to move out of your hometown?? . . . #aworldinverted #vancouver #canada #vancouverbc #city #mountains #britishcolumbia #travel #explorecanada #vancouvercanada

I'll be posting a lot from my time in Banff/Jasper in the near future. It's just beautiful up here, and I'm clearly happier in the mountains 🤷🏼‍♀️ this one's from an early morning hike to Lake Agnes earlier this week. It was foggy and misty the entire hike up, but the fog lifted around the lake itself and I got some reflection shots I'm happy about. I flipped this one just to see what it looked like, because the water was so clear and I actually really liked it... Sooo there's the back story to this upside-down photo. 🙃

Photo by: @davesandford Tundra Naps 🖤 Have you had enough of my brown bear posts the last few weeks? I thought I’d completely switch it up for you today with a lounging polar bear! It’s almost polar bear season in Churchill! Starting to count down the days until I’m back! This particular bear we waited in -30 degree temperatures for about 4 1/2 hours for.. the bear slept & slept until about 30 min before we lost the light. Then the magic unfolded with about a 5 min stretching and rolling routine, providing a plethora of magical images from this encounter. Patience is a virtue. Want to see polar bears for yourself, perhaps along side me even? Drop @discover_churchill a line.. guide to the stars! (The stars being the bears of course)

Knock knock! Who’s there!? 👽 . Camping or as I like to call it “glamping” at Grasslands National Park is pretty incredible! As one of Canada’s dark sky preserves, you have unlimited views of the stars at night! 😍

【加拿大、艾伯塔】Lake Louise Banff,Alberta 從溫哥華出發大雨不斷,一直到旅程的第二天清早從BC省跨到Alberta省終於可以從雲層透出亮光,來到班夫國家公園必來的路易絲湖,也不負眾望的雲層消散、陽光透出,一路上的大山大景伴隨著整趟旅程,真的來一次就愛上這裡。 #canada #alberta #lakelouise #banff #rockmountains #加拿大 #路易絲湖 #洛磯山脈 #stepbystep2trincanada

This! Hot springs in winter. Looks so beautiful and relaxing. Like yeah, it's quite cool when you are getting in and you feel sooo brave and the water is warm and your hair is frozen, we even warmed up some smokies, spent there about 5 hours but then.. then you have to get out. It's -25°C and your clothes is frozen and you only have a tent to sleep in.. not so much fun then, not so much fun ⛄so glad I did that and never again!
