Travel Designer

Natasha was born and raised in Vancouver but has traveled to many countries internationally. 

Having worked in travel for over six years, one of her favorite things about working in tourism is living vicariously through the excitement of others. 

That is why it’s especially exciting for her to plan trips for travelers that are new to Canada – she loves showing off her country and watching new people fall in love with all that it has to offer!. 

What is your favorite place in Canada?

My favorite place in Canada has to be Tofino. Tofino is west coast BC at its finest, with never-ending beaches, forests, indigenous culture, local cuisine, open ocean and incredible whale watching. My favorite thing to do in Tofino is wake up early and watch the mist rise off the ocean... the peace and tranquility are unmatched!

Tell us about a special discovery that you’ve made in Canada.

One of my favorite local escapes is Porteau Cove which boasts some incredible views of the coastal BC fjords. It’s about a 45-minute drive from downtown Vancouver along the Sea to Sky Highway and is perfect for summer camping, a relaxing day-trip, or even scuba diving if you’re up for an adventure.

What one thing in Canada should you experience at least once in your life?

Visiting Lake Louise is always incredible, regardless of the season. The Chateau Fairmont Lake Louise overlooks the stunningly blue lake while the massive mountains paint a beautiful backdrop. Driving through the Rockies to get to Lake Louise is another adventure all in itself!
