At Outdoor Explore, we've been working hard to create the best guided wilderness experiences in British Columbia. From exciting hikes and treks through beautiful snow capped peaks, to peaceful canoe trips across crystal clear lakes. Outdoor Explore offers the best guided hiking in British Columbia, as well as multi-day canoe adventures. Popular activities with us include Hiking in Vancouver, Scrambling in Squamish, Trekking near Whistler, and Paddling on the Sunshine Coast.
British Columbia is the true Wild West. Not only does this part of the world have a rich, spiritual history from the First Nation People, but it also has a huge amount of real wilderness where you can truly immerse yourself in the natural world.
These wild places are swarming with life. Our adventures may take you down hidden valleys sculpted by epic glaciers from the last ice age, packed full of alpine meadows, flowers, birds and animals. Or maybe we’ll climb a peak for 360 degree views of endless mountain chains and epic sunsets over the ocean.
We believe that everyone should have the chance to experience true wilderness. Sure, these places are beautiful; you’ll want to take lots of photos and tell your friends all about it, but what we really hope is that you’ll be moved by the sheer perfection of these natural landscapes, and shocked by the rapid effects evident from climate change. All we can ask is that you walk away from this hike (if your legs aren’t too tired) with a boosted desire to protect and preserve our wild spaces.
"I found myself first heading into BC's backcountry in 2009 and haven't been able to pull myself away since. There's something incredible about the landscape here, the magic and allure of the hills and the richness of the experiences therein compels us on."
