The fabulous Alpamayo trek in Peru in the Cordillera Blanc is a standout - unspoiled landscape, high mountain peaks, glacial blue lakes, interesting vegetation

For an easy stunner of a hike in Sedona, try the Courthouse Butte hike.

An amazing 160 km 2 day cross-country ski event in Quebec called the Canada Ski Marathon. The next weekend is Feb 10-12, 2017. Great to do personally and also a fantastic community event.

If you think Duluth is an ageing rust bucket of a town you haven't been in a while. Now it's entrepreneurial and the sheer number of outdoor and nature adventures possible at your finger tips is amazing. The micro-brew scene is delicous and the city is awesome. There's a good reason it was voted best outdoor town in America in 2014 by Outside. Go now before the masses discover its charms.

Hiking in Sedona's red rock country is always a treay=t. Try the 5 mile Courthouse Butte trail south of town for a particularly easy, beautiful hike.

Outdoor and adventure travel inspiration
Introduction
Hi,
I'm Leigh McAdam with HikeBikeTravel - a travel blog with an outdoor adventure focus. I've been busy the last few years exploring all of Canada from coast to coast to coast - on foot, via a bike, a kayak, a canoe, on a pair of skis and even skates. 

But it's not just Canada I write about. I have a serious case of wanderlust - so in the past few years I've also hiked in the remote Sierra Nevada del Cocuy mountain range in Colombia; I've relaxed at an eco-resort in Costa Rica and I've explored many parts of the southwestern United States - including the fabulous slot canyon country that makes up the Grand Staircase Escalante area in Utah..

Please sign up for my newsletter to get the my latest tips on adventure travel including ideas of places to go, tips for outdoor gear and suggested adventure travel books to read.
