“Many thanks for a truly wonderful experience.
The ethos of CrossRiver Wilderness Centre is so
in tune with nature that it
has been a privilege to
be here. The walks and scenery were spectacular and made so enjoyable
by the expert knowledge that Troy and Tabatha shared with us. It was wonderful to come
‘home’ after a strenuous hike to such beautiful
meals - thanks to everyone...It was lovely
to be made so welcome.”

Single Day Guide Hires & Fees

If guests have booked accommodations at CrossRiver, and are not interested in an all-inclusive package, day hiking 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; navigation training; wilderness interpretation training; and years of hiking experience. The two main certifying organizations that our guides have graduated from are the Association of Canadian Mountain Guides (ACMG), and the Mountain Parks and Heritage Interpretation Association (MPHIA); both are 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). Hiking destinations and possibilities will all be discussed during the hiring process, and depending on guide availability and guest fitness levels, they could include: alpine ridge walks; subalpine meadows and lakes; river valleys and waterfalls; mountain summits; wildlife and wildflower viewing opportunities; and wilderness skills and activities. We will return in the late-afternoon to the Wilderness Centre in time for a welcomed dinner and some relaxation time. 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.
