There are certain landmarks around the world that perfectly represent the nation where they can be found.

When you think about destinations across Europe where you can achieve this, it's unlikely that the Scandinavian nation of Norway (or any of the other countries in this part of the continent) will be very high on...
drive from banff to kootenay national park
The Canadian Rockies is blessed to have a spectacular array of national parks worth exploring. Inevitably, visitors will head to this part of Canada in hope of experiencing the amazing natural attractions throughout Jasper and Banff National Parks but we would argue that there is a third option that you cannot afford to miss out on - Kootenay National...
