Kurtis and Chelsey

Kurtis and Chelsey are a married couple from Southern Alberta who love finding adventure in everything they do, be it close to home or on the other side of the world. They document their adventures with vlogs and cinematic travel films, and they share tips and information to help you get the most out of your travels. About a year and a half ago, Kurtis and Chelsey brought their Bengal cat, Kona, into their lives—but didn't want to stop traveling. So they spent Kona’s first full year researching, training, and practicing with her to become an adventure cat. Kona now goes on hikes, canoe rides, road trips, and even on planes—and they want to teach you how to do the same.
