You don't need to be an experienced hiker to be able to safely enjoy the pristine mountains and lakes of the Coastal Ranges. Let Outdoor Explore guide you and your family or friends to one of BCs beautiful glacial lakes, where you can unplug and unwind.

Relax on the shores of Cheakamus lake and dip your toes in the cool waters. Take a dip with panoramic views of glaciers and snowcapped peaks.

Our hike follows the mighty Cheakamus river as it winds through impressive old growth forest. Giant Douglas Fir trees tower over the trail which climbs steadily to a scenic view across Cheakamus lake.

What our customers say about Outdoor Explore guided adventures
"

Always good fun out with the Outdoor Explore team. First time out with these guys I was worried I wouldn't be able to keep up, but they helped make me feel comfortable and safe the whole time. Solid, confident, and proficient guides. Amazing way to visit the outdoors, seeing places that would be hard to access alone....
