Creole Nature Trail Alligator

If you thought Louisiana is all about alligators, marshes and excellent Creole cuisine, you are absolutely right. But have you ever jumped in and explored all that this place in the heart of America has to offer? Then it’s time to grab your hat, sunscreen and fishing pole and explore the Creole Nature Trail.

The Creole Nature Trail All-American Road winds through the wetlands, wildlife refuges and marshes that Louisiana is famous for while introducing you to the unique splendor of the area. Take the kids along on a family adventure as you hike, fish, stroll, crab or whatever suits your fancy. Or take it all in behind the lens of a camera and capture those memories.

This eco-adventure will allow you to experience newly refurbished exhibits and a driving trail at the Cameron Prairie National Wildlife Refuge. Check out the wildlife from a paved trail on the Wetland Walkway and Blue Goose Trail at the Sabine National Wildlife Refuge. And of course, there is an abundance of redfish, flounder and speckled trout in Southwest Louisiana if you feel like a little fishing.

Ever come eye to eye with a toothy alligator’s smiling face? Here’s your chance. Louisiana is home to the second largest alligator population in the U.S. and on the Creole Nature Trail you can see them basking in the sun or rambling along the side of the trail into the canal. Little too wild for your nature? The trail also boasts seven natural beaches along 26 miles of undeveloped Gulf Coast.

Visiting the Creole Nature Trail will have you feeling like you are miles away from home yet all the conveniences of home, like stores, restaurants, and groceries, are nearby in the small community of Cameron. Start your adventure and get away from it all by visiting the Creole Nature Trail website.

Where the wild things are: in Canada

Caribou to Wolves Eco Tour in CanadaVacation isn’t always about stunning beaches and tropical drinks. Sometimes it’s about returning to nature and seeking out the spirit of the wild. Get comfy with the wolves and caribou of Canada’s vast tundra.

Explore Canada’s last remaining wilderness on the Churchill Wild Caribou to Wolves Ecotour. Explore the Arctic “Serengeti” the great tundra plains known as The Barren Lands, and “The Land of Little Sticks.” Pass through the Boreal Forests on the edge of the Canadian Shield and know you are in a wild, wild, world.

Spend 11 days and 10 nights exploring your wild side. Start out in Churchill, a frontier town located on the shores of Hudson Bay, take in some shops and dine in local restaurants before departing for camp at Schmok Lake. Along the way watch for polar bears, caribou and other wildlife. Have your camera at the ready, because you’ll want to capture nature at its best.

Spend some time trekking in the tundra towards the herds of Barren Land Caribou and learn about their habitat. View wildlife like geese, wolves and even wolverine. Spend your nights waiting for the appearance of the Aurora Borealis, otherwise known as the Northern Lights.

Even a walk on the wild side has a detour for luxury, however. By day seven you’ll be off to North Knife Lake Lodge to soak in a wood fired hot tub. Then it’s back for some wolf viewing and fishing. You’ll have an opportunity to learn about the resident wolf pack and even learn how to howl like a wolf! North Knife Lake is Canada’s trophy fishing destination and you’ll be able to find Northern Pike and Lake Trout. If fishing doesn’t bait you, you can simply relax in the lodge with a book, soak in the hot tub, or just unwind.

Head to the northern territory of Canada with Churchill  Wild Caribou to Wolves Ecotour.
