INTERNeX Explorer: The Rocky Mountains -Part 1

Since we are going to the Rocky Mountains at the end of March, I thought it’d be a great idea to learn a bit about the places we will visit during our trip! The first day we will be arriving at Valemount, BC!

Valemount is a town surrounded by the beautiful BC mountain ranges, Cariboo, the Monashee, and of course the Rockies. Today, this place welcomes travelers all year round with fun and exciting activities such snowmobiling, heli-skiing in winter, hiking, camping, and trail riding, and whitewater rafting in summer! You can also just simply enjoy the quiet serenity as you breathe in the fresh mountain air!

Mount Robson

But in the early 1900’s, Valemount played an important role in railway construction between the Great Northern and Grand Trunk Railroads, which later became the CN Railway System.  In 1928, Valemount became a railway station, and you’ll be able to see the historic remains and artifacts on display at the Valemount and Area Museum!

It is also the closest town to Mount Robson, the TALLEST of the Canadian Rocky Mountains! As for shopping, they have really unique and locally made gifts that you can’t find anywhere else!

That’s all for now, don’t want to spoil it for you before the trip 😉 But why don’t you see this amazing place for yourself? Remember to register at our office and click here to join our Facebook event page! 

Cheers,

INTERNeX Canada: Upcoming events!

One more week till March?! I am totally excited for the upcoming months because there is just so much more for us to do and see here in Vancouver! And in case you’re tired of wondering, here are some of the awesome upcoming events that will be happening very soon 😉

Vancouver Aquarium!

What a great way to spend time this weekend by going to the Vancouver Aquarium with us! If you didn’t know, the Vancouver Aquarium is a non-profit society that is passionate about conserving the aquatic life. This Saturday we will get to experience the Secret World of Sharks and Rays exhibition as well as so many other fascinating lives of underwater creatures! The Aquarium is great for any weather conditions and is located closely to one of the most beautiful places in Vancouver, Stanley Park. If you haven’t been out to the Aquarium yet and don’t know what to do this Saturday, spend the afternoon exploring with us!

When: Saturday March 2nd

Where: Vancouver Aquarium 845 Avison Way

Movie Night!

Since it was Oscars last night, how perfect would it be for us to go to the theaters? We should all just grab a popcorn and watch a fun movie! So join us for a movie night and experience what Vancouver cinema has to offer! A few days prior, we will take a majority vote on which movie we’d like to go watch. I may need help with this personally, because I haven’t been keeping up with recent movie trailers -uh oh!

When: Saturday March 9
