You've started dreaming of new adventures? Looking to get away from the crowds? Let's head into the backcountry using our map and compass to guide us.
Spend three days wandering the mountains, forging your own way. Our guide will teach you all there is to know about backpacking through remote regions with limited infrastructure! We will hike up to 12km and set up a campsite. Spending two nights out we'll have a lot of opportunity to practice our skills, explore, and get you out front!

This is a co-ed trip
We'll wake up full of energy and drive to the trailhead. The day will be spent with map and compass in hand. Under the watchful eye of your guide the group will be in charge of setting the path. Delicious home made dehydrated meals will fill our bellies when we reach camp. Topped off with dessert we will head to bed with a smile on our face!
This trip is designed to help you learn how to safely navigate with limited trails. Some map and compass experience will help you get the most out of the adventure, but it's not essential. We will be hiking along unmarked trails, through the bush, crossing rivers, and choosing our own path. As a result, this should not be your first hike of the year. You will need to carry your personal gear plus food and water for up to 12km each day. When packing, be mindful that your pack should not weight more than 30lbs.
Want to get your body ready for the trip? Take our navigation course and check out this 6 week training program. Follow this and you'll be set. Lets learn together and have some laughs!
