Participate in an unforgettable seasonal experience with a canyon ice-walking and ice-climbing adventure in Maligne Canyon. You can ascend a frozen waterfall or explore ice caves while in the company of an experienced local guide from Sun Dog Tours. Prefer to do your exploring within easy reach of shopping and coffeeshops? Take a one-hour fat tire bike tour through the town’s snow-covered landscape with Journey Bike Guides.

If adrenaline-inducing activities are more your thing, book a heli-snowshoeing tour through Jasper’s mountain ridges and peaks with professional guides from Jasper Heli Tours. Slow down and catch your breath that night while counting stars in the park’s 6,835 square acres of Dark Sky Preserve, enjoy skating on Mildred Lake or learn the finer points of dogsledding during an outing with the pros at Cold Fire Creek Dog Sledding.

Hôtel des Grands Voyageurs Review

It’s often declared Paris’ Left Bank, or La Rive Gauche, the local side of the Seine —  where bohemian and chic are used superfluously, albeit with some veracity. It only makes sense that travelers looking to stay on the Left Bank would seek as local an accommodation as possible — Hôtel des Grands Voyageurs is the new kid on the block and certainly delivers this with its design following the likes of a Parisian art collectors’ residence.

Seoul Garners Good Fortune on a Wave of Cultural Popularity

First came the musical mega-hit, “Gangnam Style,” in 2012, leading the band PSY to the top of the charts, only to be followed by other beloved K-pop bands like BTS. Then, in 2020, Parasite became the first non-English-language film to win the Academy Award for Best Picture. The following year, the latest in a long line of Korean television shows or K-dramas, Squid Game became Netflix’s most watched series and the most watched program in 94 countries. Add the rise of Korean fine dining around the globe along with the demand for K-beauty products and high fashion, often influenced by the traditional Korean garb called hanbok, and you arrive at the cultural phenomenon called hallyu, or the Korean Wave. Indeed, South Korean popular culture, with Seoul at its epicenter, reached such a status Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts installed a hallyu exhibition, currently on display through July, which originated at London’s Victoria and Albert Museum.
