Welcome to Voyageur Tripper

Hi! I’m Mikaela, the voice behind Voyageur Tripper, a blog dedicated to outdoor adventure for those of us who aren’t professional explorers. With informative guides and resources – and a misadventure or two along the way – I strive to provide outdoor enthusiasts with the tools they need to get outside more!

About Mikaela

My wilderness journey began at camp, and has led me to canoe guiding on Ontario rivers, kayaking among icebergs in Nunavut and hiking around New Zealand. A Wilderness Guide turned Weekend Warrior, I now balance a full time job with outdoor adventures and writing.
