What to Expect
Get out of the typical tourist traps of Vancouver and experience the real Canada! Our adventure tourism trips consist of 2 guides and 8 guest. We will give you the opportunity to experience the wilds of Canada as you push yourself to out of your comfort zone and experience new things in astonishing environments. This trip is scheduled to be shorter to offer an more economical option, so it is action packed! We have great accommodations to allow for enjoyable rest in between our journeys. There will be plenty of opportunities to take in the grandeur and beauty while you can rely on our guides to lead the way dealing with decision making, logistics, route-finding and safety. We will also film and provide documentation of our trip at the end which is a fun way to relive the memories!
We provide all the gear for the activities below including: Wet suit, Harness, Helmet, Rappel Device, Ropes, Dry bag and packs. Once you have signed up we will set up a time to call you and discuss the trip more in depth. In addition, we will provide a comprehensive check list to ensure you have everything you need for this trip. Due to the small size of our groups, our trips fill up fast so unfortunately if we reach our capacity we will add you to our waiting list (you won't be charged until you have a confirmed spot).
Canyoning - Descend 3 -4 canyons with rappels up to 200 ft, slides, jumps, and swims
Zipline - Zip lining in Whistler
Tourism - In addition we will spend some time in Whistler and Squamish in our down time.
We'll pick all guest up at Vancouver Airport or some other predetermined location and head straight out for our first day of activities. We'll get right into it with a training before we head off into the forest to find our first canyon to descend. This canyon starts off with a bang with a 45 foot jump into a crystal clear pool, we can also set up a rappel for anyone that is not comfortable with this big of a jump. The day will continue with much more of the same, a lot of jumping and rappelling. We will head up the road after we complete our first canyon to descend another more isolated canyon to finish off our day. When we finish with our second canyon we will head up the scenic sea to sky high on our way to our accommodations.
We get another day of canyoning. We'll head for a historic mining town where the canyon has been reclaimed and restored from its past history as mining river. This canyon is marked with gorgeous waterfalls and fun jumps. As we spend the day playing we'll also keep watchful eye for local wildlife of Moose, Elk, deer, and bears as we have been able to enjoy the company of some animals in the past.
We'll have a slight recovery day and drive a bit to visit whistler. We'll get to experience the tops of the trees this day as we participate in some zip lining and enjoy the scenery of the famous ski town. We'll also get to enjoy the dinning and sites of many glaciers in the area.
If you want to experience a big approach, big jumps, big slides, and big rappels then this day is for you. We'll be descending our biggest canyon yet and the action is nonstop. We'll want to get up early as we will need every second of sunlight for this day as we push ourselves to the limit. It starts with a great hike that has some extremely scenic views, in an old growth forest with moss growing on everything. When we get to the canyon we'll suit up. Then it is waterfall after waterfall. By the end of this day we'll all feel like we don't need to see another rappel for awhile.
Our final day, where we say goodbye. We will depart and head to the Vancouver Airport for those that are departing Canada or we'll drop you off at a predetermined location based on where your next adventure takes you.
