You can go backpacking in Skoki, kayaking Hakai and the Great Bear Rainforest, learn mountaineering skills out of Sorcerer Lodge, or take an epic canoe trip to Wind River in the Yukon. Our experienced and certified guides and instructors will take good care of you as you celebrate Canada’s 150th with us.
