Being nature lovers as well as newly empty nesters, we have finally started to really explore Bancroft.  We love kayaking, hiking, ATVing, rock climbing- even at “our age”- (thanks for stating the obvious son!), meditating, yoga and more . Bancroft is smack dab in the middle of Everything Nature and Adventure! In-between our day jobs and “living in the country-chores” we try to find time to enjoy this beautiful world. When we moved to Bancroft in 2011 it was difficult to find information on “everything Adventure in Bancroft” one place. We had spent long hours trying to find all the information needed, which is what led us to building this site as a way to help others experience what Bancroft has to offer through our eyes, then hopefully through their own eyes. This site is definitely a labour of love.

We will be writing about and photographing all things Adventure in Bancroft! Once a week, or more, weathering cooperating of course, we will endeavour to bring you a new experience whatever it may be, along with all the information you need to get out there and do it too!

Your own personal “Adventuring in Bancroft” stories and photos are always welcome. Please contact us.

Please bear with us while we work on our site. We are computer newbies!  One day at a time, or more aptly one post at a time!


“Mother Earth is fading at a quickened pace
Changes are needed by the human race
Remember when exploring to leave no trace
So as to save our precious, precious place”
