Anyone who's traveled around Alberta and British Columbia knows the scenery is incredible, but we reckon very few have captured that beauty this well.

Tom Richards is from Sheffield, England, and he brought his camera with him during his summer in Whistler, B.C. and his road trip in Alberta.

A keen mountain biker, he decided to branch out lately and shoot some more of his travels. The result is pretty impressive!

Tom arrived in Canada in May on a six-month tourist permit. After spending the summer in Whistler, his working holiday work permit finally came through and he plans to move to Vancouver at the end of this month.

“I’m moving to Vancouver to get video and photo work, and experience Canadian life outside of a ski resort,” Tom tells us.

“The majority of the shots in the video are from a recent two week road trip, not with friends, but with my mum, dad and sister who came out to visit.

“It’s hard to choose a highlight, since everywhere I have visited so far has been incredible! I would have to say though probably mountain biking in Whistler and visiting the rugged coastline of Vancouver Island have been my highlights of Canada so far,” he added.

If you’re interested to know where the shots are from, Tom tells us they were filmed in Whistler, Tofino and Ucluelet, in BC, and Banff National Park, Jasper National Park, Lake Louise, Moraine Lake and Maligne Lake in Alberta.

You can follow Tom on Facebook and Twitter for more videos.
