About Mikaela

The outdoors has always played an important role in my life.

I grew up running on the granite rocks of the Canadian Shield and swimming in the dark green waters of Georgian Bay. I love nights spent under the stars, whether it’s on a paddling, hiking or other type of outdoor trip.

I also love introducing others to the backcountry and helping them find the resources they need to get out safely and comfortably.

The Voyageur’s Backcountry Cookbook

Cooking is one of my favourite parts about camping trips. I love grilling over a fire or stirring veggies over a stove, experimenting with new recipes and testing just how gourmet I can make backcountry cooking.

This book covers everything you need to know about meal planning and cooking for backcountry camping trips – including dehydrating food, recipes, clean up and more.

One of the most in-demand resources I create are trip reports. Thus I have created an entire section of the website specifically dedicated to trip reports.There’s over 100 reports for hiking and paddling routes across Canada. Check it out!
