Part of Bow Valley Parkway will offer traffic-free biking again. Plus, art projects are launching U.K.-wide, and Italy has a new proposal for couples.

Last summer, part of Alberta’s Bow Valley Parkway — the road connecting Banff and Lake Louise since the early 1900s — closed to public cars, enabling bicyclists to ride traffic-free. The popular initiative will be back for summer 2022, and travellers can even take e-biking tours along the parkway from local companies like White Mountain Adventures and Banff Cycle . Keep your eyes open as you wind through the forest: beyond the mountain views and lookout points, the route is noted for sightings of wildlife — moose, bighorn sheep, mule deer and even the occasional bear.

Back in the skies

Soon, it’ll be easier to fly off to Europe and beyond. Air Canada has announced the relaunch of numerous summer routes. This month, non-stop flights have just resumed from Toronto to Tel Aviv, Paris and Amsterdam; service to destinations like Barcelona, Madrid and Milan — on pause since the pandemic’s start — will follow in subsequent months. Altogether, 34 international routes are slated to resume. Similarly, Air Transat has announced it will relaunch most of its summer routes.
