The Great Outdoors

  1. The best way to experience Kayal is to put away all gadgetry, lock your watch up, and take a stroll into another era. You can walk or cycle across the island, stopping along the way to say hello to the islanders. For those who love their me-time, we suggest a canoe ride on the soothing Lake. But if you truly want to live the local life, join a farmer in his fields, the fisherman on the lake, the toddy tapper up the tree or the womenfolk in their local festivals. From yoga to Ayurveda, day trips to Fort Kochi to midnight star gazing, the possibilities are endless at Kayal.

  2. The southern mountain caribou herds in British Columbia are threatened and in some areas they have already disappeared. We as a society have said we’re not ready to let them go. Watch how biologists are working to bring these herds back from the brink. You can help caribou and raise awareness of the issues they face by sharing this video and learning more about the herd that lives closest to you.

  3. On a recent trip to Switzerland we took the ferry from Niederried on Lake Brienz to Giessbach. A short hike starting from the ferry landing took us along the beautiful river where many falls, both large and small, make their way down the steep valley. At mid-point we passed a wonderful grand hotel which overlooks the largest of the cascades. We continued on up the trail which crossed the falls at several levels and at one point allowed us to walk behind the falls with views of the hotel and valley below. On the return loop we enjoyed a glass of wine at Hotel Giessbach and enjoyed the views of the falls and Lake Brienz. For those who prefer not to hike there is a funicular that will take you up to the hotel.
