Paulina Nowicki

Travel Designer

Paulina is Vancouver born and bred, describing herself as the stereotypical “West Coast girl” that balances her time between the city and the outdoors. From a young age, Paulina has traveled extensively throughout BC, the United States, and Europe with her family. This past year Paulina finished a Bachelor’s Degree in Tourism Management. Within her university studies, she was accepted for a semester abroad in the Netherlands, during which she developed a keen interest in solo traveling. Combined with her background in hotels and travel services, helping clients arrange the perfect vacation is what Paulina does best.

What is your favorite place in Canada?

Nothing beats a BC road trip! Some of my fondest memories have been while driving to the amazing places in this province. I would highly recommend taking a road trip from Vancouver to the the Okanagan Valley. The heat in this region is what brings people from all over as the Okanagan is Canada’s only desert. This region makes for the ultimate summer getaway with its rustic desert atmosphere and laid back beach town attitude. Did I mention that this region is also filled with lakes, orchards and wineries?! Personally, Osoyoos is my favorite small town in the Okanagan.

Tell us about a special discovery that you’ve made in Canada.

Paddle boarding! Stand up paddle is a water sport that has received a lot more hype in recent years and for good reason. Throughout Canada, many destinations on both the West coast and East coast have embraced the activity which offers a fun and leisurely way to explore oceans, lake and rivers. I’ve also tried paddle board yoga, which is a fun challenge for any yoga enthusiast.

What one thing in Canada should you experience at least once in your life?

Visiting a hot spring in British Columbia. My favorites are Ainsworth and Lussier located in the Kootenay mountain range of BC. For any hot spring, I recommend visiting in the spring or late September fall so you can enjoy the cool air against the warm water as well as less crowds.
