Voyageur Guide Hires


Historic Voyageur Canoeing Guide Hires & Fees

If guests have booked accommodations at CrossRiver, and are not interested in an all-inclusive package, voyageur canoeing guide hires may also be available while they are here. Our guides are all certified with the highest industry qualifications required for the trips in our area. These include, at least, advanced wilderness first aid training; swift-water rescue level 3 training; and years of canoeing and water experience. The main certifying organization that our guides have graduated from is Rescue Canada; well known worldwide for their high level of standards and instruction. Just as importantly, however, our guides are passionate about being in the wilderness and love sharing it with others. Their backgrounds and personalities are all different, and each knows how to create fun, safe, and even inspirational experiences in their own ways. Your guide will also be an experienced trip leader, as well as knowledgeable about the area—its history, First Nations peoples, nature, animals, stories, medicines, traditional uses, wilderness skills—and how it connects with our lives today (see more about our people here, for more specific information on individual guides). Voyageur canoeing destinations and possibilities will all be discussed during the hiring process, and depending on guide availability, will all involve an evening journey down the historic Columbia River. Some highlights could be a riverside snack; stories, historic poetry, and legends of Canadian mountain life, fur trading days, and aboriginal culture; scenic river and plateau landscape; and amazing wildlife viewing opportunities, including a myriad birds, beavers, foxes, moose, and cougars. We will return in the later-evening to the Wilderness Centre for some relaxation time before bed. The fees below are quoted on a per-day basis, are subject to change without further notice, and are based on a minimum number of four to six participants for each out-trip.
