Blessed with breathtaking landscapes, British Columbia is home to a geographical diversity that lends itself to a vast array of activities and adventures. There are mountains to climb, rivers to run, beaches to comb, forests to hike, parks to stroll and warm summer lakes to laze about.

The province generally enjoys a temperate climate but where there are mountains, there is snow. Renowned for the steep and the deep of its world-class ski terrain.

I enjoyed the trip a lot. And even though it was a brief 1 week I was able to make strong bonds with the entire group through teamwork and understanding. I will definitely remember this trip for my whole life.

Sam's entertaining & relaxed demeanor brought out the best in all of us. His knowledge of travel lore and history was interesting & educational. Started identifying wildflowers & he stayed involved using his knowledge & references to enhance the experience.

Balance of activities fitted days with good meals & travel between sites. Weather was stable (rain only at night), tents were good, advice to bring extra sleeping mattress was very helpful. Full time guide helped us enjoy the trip.
