Easter weekend is almost here, and while it’s still not quite the time for big indoor family gatherings, there are plenty of ways to safely make the most of the first long weekend of spring. We’ve put together a fun list of alternative Easter hunts to get you in the spirit.
Tick off activities on your to-do list in Banff and Jasper
There’s no shortage of outdoor activities in the Canadian Rockies. See how many adventures you can tick off in one weekend by heading to Banff or Jasper for activity-filled days. Ski at one of the area’s hills, explore Maligne Canyon and rent a fat-tire bike from Pyramid Lake Resort and hit the trails.If you're looking for some hike inspiration, check out our list of the best hikes in Jasper and Banff.
Spot wildlife in Alaska
Spring is here, which means gray whale season has begun in Alaska. So, swap easter egg hunts for wildlife spotting on the Gray Whale Watch Tour with Kenai Fjords Tours. Keep your eyes peeled in the water and on land as you never know what wildlife you may find roaming along the shorelines.
Sample local beer in Montana
The beer scene is booming in Montana and the Flathead Valley is home to many great local breweries. For the adults in the group, take yourself on a mini brewery tour (with a designated driver!) to get a taste of the local flavor. Try Bonsai Brewing Project in Whitefish for its lineup of kettle-aged sours, Tamarack Brewing Company in Lakeside for its IPAs and Kalispell Brewing Company for its German-style lagers.
