Canada is filled with awe-inspiring natural landscapes that attract thousands of tourists, photographers, and outdoor adventurers each year.
All of the boots that we manufacture at Oliberté pay homage to Canadian travel destinations that inspire us and encourage us to want to get outside and explore. Each boot in our collection is named after a real place.
Check out our list below of the seven Canadian travel destinations that inspired our boots, so you can visit them in real life!
1. Mount Robson
Mount Robson towers at an elevation of almost 13,000 feet in British Columbia. It is part of the North American Rocky Mountain range, and it is the highest peak in the Canadian Rockies. Because of its height, the multi-day hike to the top is reserved for experts.
Like the terrain that makes up Mount Robson, our Robson boots are designed with support and durability in mind using high-quality materials.
The most popular hike at Mount Robson is the Berg Lake Trail, which is rated intermediate to difficult. It highlights each part of the magnificent landscape in the area, including views of rivers, glaciers, waterfalls, lakes, and cliff views from the grand mountain itself.
Top Trail: Berg Lake Trail
Berg Lake Trail Distance: 13.8 miles
Nearby Attractions: Hubbard Glacier
2. Dawson City
Dawson City is a vibrant city on the Yukon River in northwest Canada. Its rich history during the Gold Rush makes it an exciting and eventful place to visit.
Like the city that inspired us, our Dawson boots offer a luxurious and hardwearing design that makes you feel like you just mined gold.
The most popular things to do in Dawson City include visiting Tombstone Territorial Park, gamble at Diamond Tooth Gerties Gambling Hall, and cross the river on George Black Ferry.
Nearby Attractions: Midnight Dome, Klondike National Historic Site
3. Mount Logan
Mount Logan is the highest mountain in Canada and the second highest in North America behind Denali. Its grand elevation reaches 19,551’, allowing it to tower over Yukon, Canada as part of the Saint Elias mountain range.
At its monstrous height, Mount Logan requires years of experience to even attempt an expedition towards the summit. But, there is still plenty of other hiking trails around the area that provide views of the high peak.
Like the mountain that inspired them, our Logan boots are sturdy and tall in design. These boots are rugged in appearance and large in size with a 100% tan leather lining.
Nearby Attractions: Hubbard Glacier
4. Lake Huron
Lake Huron is a 206-mile lake whose deepest point is 751 feet deep. It is one of five Great Lakes in North America and rests on the borders of Michigan in the United States and Ontario in Canada.
The lake is home to two marine parks, one in Michigan on the United States side and another in Ontario, Canada.
Our Huron boots are lower than some of our other designs, hugging your ankles while still providing comfortable support for walking. Proudly made in Canada and tanned in the USA, our Huron boots are the perfect connection between the two countries that share the great lake itself.
Nearby Attractions: Sturgeon Point Lighthouse, Fathom Five National Marine Park
5. Fraser River
The Fraser River is the longest river in British Columbia and the 11th longest in all of Canada. One of the highlights of Canadian travel destinations is the Fraser Valley, which offers local farms, wineries, and sturgeon fishing, which is a fish highly protected in Canada.
The newest boot in our collection, the Fraser boot, is inspired by Fraser’s vast farming region and comes in the color “Farmer Brown”.
6. Mackenzie, British Columbia
Mackenzie, British Columbia is a district of British Columbia, Canada, that hosts a wide variety of events for tourists all year. In the winter, they have dog sled races, hikes, and skiing. In the summer, there are beaches, mountain biking, and fishing. They are also home to the world’s largest tree crusher.
The comfort and high quality of our Mackenzie boots reflect the lively district that inspired us. They are most similar to our men’s Robson boots, but they are designed specifically for women!
7. Sable Island National Park Reserve
Sable Island is an isolated and remote island off Canada’s coast near Nova Scotia. The island is home to wild horses, grey seals, and other wildlife that roam among the sand dunes and freshwater ponds littering its landscape.
Our Sable boots for women are built sturdy and strong like the horses that roam Sable Island while still providing comfort.
More Canadian Travel Destinations to Inspire You
Canada is filled with awe-inspiring travel destinations that will inspire you during your visit. Banff National Park, Quebec City, Vancouver Island, and Niagara Falls are all popular tourist destinations in Canada.
While planning a visit in Canada, make sure you spend the time supporting local businesses such as restaurants, breweries, shops, and local attractions to support our Canadian community. Local businesses are in all Canadian travel destinations, and they work hard to provide travelers with everything they need during their stay.
Here are a few more Canadian travel destinations to inspire you:
- Moraine Lake: Moraine Lake is a glacier-fed lake within Banff National Park in Alberta, Canada. It is known for its distinct azure blue color.
