About Hikes Near Vancouver

Hi! I'm Kristine Krynitzki. Often referred to as "Hikes Near Vancouver" as that's the name of my passion project. Through various channels, I share a wide variety of information about hiking in and around Vancouver, BC, Canada and related topics.

The work I do has two main impacts: sharing information and creating community. The goals I achieve include creating accessibility, inspiring environmental conservation, educating about safety and etiquette, and facilitating connections within the community.

Sharing content on my social media channels and website, as well as all the other related activities I do like teaming up with other local groups like BC AdventureSmart and Search and Rescue branches, guest-speaking at educational events, interviewing for radio shows and podcasts, and more, takes A LOT of my time. And as we all know, time is money. The level of experience and knowledge that I have are worth a lot, but I give it freely because I love doing it and because it is so important. Hikes Near Vancouver (HNV) is not a job for me (I make a living working full-time for pennies at a wildlife preservation and education charity in Vancouver, also because it's important work). I make a teency bit of money from HNV through some sponsored social media posts, but that barely covers my hard costs of running HNV, like the hosting of my website.

So, if you are interested in what I do and would like to support my work by becoming a Patron, I would be ever so grateful!
