A little about us, and what we're all about. We are Brie + Reuben + Oliver, and together we make up VancityWild.
We are a family of west coast adventurers; followers of trails, climbers of mountains, wilderness wanderers, and true lovers of life.
Our story begins with a west coast island girl and a prairie farm boy who were both looking for somewhere that felt like home. Brie originally hails from Vancouver Island, but has lived in Vancouver since 2007. She went to university in Montréal, but after three rough, eastern Canadian winters, the mountains and ocean were calling. Reuben is an Alberta boy, and moved to Vancouver in 2010 after growing up on a farm in a small town just outside Edmonton. West coast life and a shared adventurous spirit brought us together.
During the course of our adventures, we came to discover that we are our best selves when we're outdoors, whether we're climbing to the top of a mountain or finding a river or glacial lake to swim in. Sharing our experiences with others became a priority, and we used the wilderness as our inspiration. Thus, VancityWild was born.
