Here at Backroad Mapbooks, we’re extremely proud to have some of Canada’s most talented female outdoor explorers representing our company as Brand Ambassadors. These incredible ladies use our maps to guide them on a wide variety of outdoor adventures, from hiking to off-roading, camping, fishing, paddling, hunting and ATVing. Wherever they go, from mountain peak to valley bottom, BRMB goes with them! And to celebrate International Women’s Day, we’d like to introduce you to these badass female ambassadors! Without further ado, here are Amanda, Kaila and Emily:

 

Amanda Lynn Mayhew

 

Born and raised in Northern Ontario, Amanda Lynn is one of the most recognizable faces of women’s outdoor recreation in Canada. This rugged, energetic and passionate individual has devoted her life to inspiring and engaging with other women to foster a love for the great outdoors, with a focus on hunting in particular.

Amanda Lynn is probably most recognized as the host of the Wild Pursuit Network’s Just Hunt TV series, where she displays her knack for keeping audiences engaged with stories and episodes that are filled with a combination of education and outdoor adventure. Of course, Amanda’s passion for the outdoors extends beyond hunting, as she is also an accomplished angler and power sports enthusiast.

With a dedication for hard work, fitness, outdoor skills and travel, Amanda Lynn is a leading proponent of women’s outdoor recreation. Some of the public programs Amanda Lynn has spearheaded include the Range Day and Take Me Fishing outreach programs, designed to help new adventurers get their foot in the door and get started on a path to outdoor excitement.

Kaila Walton

 

A self-described road-trip lover and waterfall enthusiast, Kaila is a photographer and hiker born in BC and currently based in the Northwest Territories. Always opting for the path less travelled, Kaila uses her Jeep and our Backroad Mapbooks to search out the most beautiful destinations across Northern BC and the NWT, sharing her finds with her impressive social media following.

Kaila’s goal is to inspire men and women of all shapes and sizes to get out and enjoy everything nature has to offer. Whether she is photographing the Northern Lights, a sunrise reflecting off a glacier or a panoramic view from a mountain peak, Kaila’s photography captures the best of the Canadian backcountry.

In addition to being a Backroad Mapbooks Brand Ambassador, she is also an Explorer for the Outbound Collective.

Emily Iverson & Koda

 

Emily Iverson is a Vancouver Island-based explorer, photographer and dog mom. Along with her pup Koda, Emily has a passion for searching out the best that the west coast has to offer, whether his means finding hidden waterfalls, trail running through the rainforest, summiting an alpine peak or kayaking to a secluded oceanfront campsite.

Through her and Koda’s Instagram pages, Emily combines her passion for the outdoors with her love of photography to reach thousands of followers and inspire them to get out on an adventure of their own. No matter the season, this dynamic duo does not miss a chance to get outside and explore some new terrain.

Guided by our Backroad Mapbooks, Emily and Koda display a real knack for finding the most photogenic bits of nature that Canada has to offer. If there is a more adorable dog/human adventure team on the west coast, we are yet to find them!
