With her Geography degree and experience leading hikes and backpacking trips in the Rockies, she is full of ideas on where to go and what to do.

Domonique A

Traveller Type: Authentic Experiencer

Domonique, her husband Reid, their toddler Aster and their dog Pippin spend as much time as possible exploring the Alberta outdoors together. Dom and Reid eloped in one of Alberta's parks in 2019 and even named their daughter after the lake they backpacked to for it. These days they do it all - hiking, backpacking, trailer and tent camping, fishing, hunting, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, and a lot of meandering down trails with Aster lately. To them, nothing beats the memories made as a family when you're exploring nature together. They hope to inspire other young families to get outside and see what this beautiful province has to offer!
