What we're about

Would you like to explore the breathtakingly stunning nature of British Columbia and Washington while having tons of fun in the process? Do you prefer slow to moderate hiking pace with plenty of opportunities to relax at the top, take killer pictures and recharge your batteries from the ever-flowing energy stream of nature?

May the beauty be before me. May the beauty be behind me. May the beauty be below me. May the beauty be above me. If this is your hiking motto, then this group is for you! With 10 years of experience hiking every corner of BC, Alberta, and Washington mountains, our goal is to only do the hikes and trips with the best WOW to OW ratio. Time is precious, and we want to emerge from every hike feeling amazed, invigorated and exhilarated. If you share this goal with us, then hop on board and see you on the next adventure!
