Our guides are experienced in the backcountry, have extensive first aid training, understand the local hazards and are able to minimize risk. We are here to assist you while you prepare for your trip, to educate you about the region and to take some of the load off to help you relax and enjoy your vacation without the stress of the unknown.

WEATHER ON THE WEST COAST

Due to our location on the western coast of Vancouver Island, we are facing the open North Pacific Ocean and our weather patterns therefore are controlled by the sea. Our climate is mild with winter temperatures averaging 8-10 degrees celsius and summer temperatures averaging 12-20 degrees celsius. We recommend being prepared for a range of conditions.

Pacific Rim

Pacific Rim National Park Reserve is a 511 km2 park located in British Columbia, Canada, which comprises three separate regions: Long Beach, the Broken Group Islands, and the West Coast Trail. It represents the Pacific Coast Mountains landscape which is characterized by rugged coasts and temperate rain forests.

Our guides are all expert naturalists, interpreters, and trained in risk management and advanced wilderness first aid. They will provide you with guidance, education, safety and camaraderie. With extensive local knowledge of the region, weather and wildlife going on a guided trekking tour can be a rewarding experience.
