Guide Hires & Fees

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; swift water rescue training; wilderness interpretation training; and years of hiking, biking and rafting experience. The main certifying organizations that our guides have graduated from are the Association of Canadian Mountain Guides (ACMG), the Interpretive Guides' Association (IGA), and Rescue Canada; all are well known worldwide for their high level of standards and instruction.

Our crafting, wilderness skills, and intercultural sharing facilitators are also all highly experienced. They are respected by their communities of peers, and have facilitated workshops and programs in their fields for groups of all ages, cultures, and backgrounds.
