Melanie Vogel

Deeply immersed

Few get to fully explore Canada in its entirety.  German-born Mel Vogel has made it her mission to get to know our country in one of the most immersive ways possible – by crossing The Great Trail on foot. After moving to Ontario, Mel originally intended to take to the Trail for up to two years, but has since extended her journey to three years as she continues to make her way from Newfoundland to British Columbia.

“What I experienced is the power of the Canadian people… this Trail actually makes you understand how good people are, because you will experience so much kindness and hospitality.”
