Very Easy

A nice, relaxing day out for the whole family. These trips cover short distances yet still get you into the beautiful nature of BC. Lace up your boots and come for a stroll through the woods with us.

Easy

A great way to get into BC's wilderness, without needing any previous experience. These trips are on well-defined, low angle trails. Distances are kept short so we have lots of time to soak in the wilderness.

Moderate

Perfect for people who have some prior experience, and a good level of fitness. We'll be on good trails with some steep sections, but expect longer distances and some steep sections.

Challenging

Great for those with previous experience looking for a challenge in some of the most beautiful mountains in the world. Expect longer days and steeper trails, bit it will be worth it to catch that sunset!

Extreme

Get ready for a wild adventure in some remote corners of BC Coast Mountains. The route will be more challenging, with steep terrain and some long days. Lots of previous experience and good fitness required.
