Full Day Hiking Trip

Wilderness Tours From the Sea to the Sky!

It’s no wonder why mountain bikers, trail runners, and self-propelled enthusiasts of all types migrate to the south coast year after year; The sky's the limit of where we can roam in the Sea-to-Sky Corridor. There are countless trails around Squamish and Whistler that merit endless exploring. Whether you are new to hiking, looking to explore a new area, or keen to challenge yourself in more complex terrain, there is a trail waiting for you!

We offer full-day group hikes every Saturday and Sunday and private guided hiking any day of the week.
