I do all the outdoor winter activities but have to say my snowshoe trip on Medicine Trail this morning with Conor was the trip highlight of my week in Whistler! Great sport, great views, great conversation! Thanks!

Snowshoe tour
Mar 2021 • Friends
Snowshoeing in the forest was magical. The sun came out for a bit.
Saw dog sledding groups which made me want to experience it too. James our guide was excellent, he gave us some interesting facts about the trees and history of the area. He was very helpful with strapping our gears and was happy to lend a hand when needed. The tour provided shuttle and outdoors gear if you didn't have your own which were part of our deciding factors when booking. The Callaghan valley is beautiful and pristine. I highly recommend this company.

We had an amazing day of snowshoeing. The trail is super easy to walk through the beautiful majestic forest. We saw different types of colorful mushrooms. Our tour guide James was very professional. He explained to us the varieties of different growth trees along the way, very knowledgeable. I highly recommend this tour when you're in Whistler. Thank you to all the team.

Highly recommend this tour, it takes you through the most amazing forest walk, and offered so much information. We had an amazing tour guide Connor, who provided us with so much information as well as such a fun and enjoyable experience! If your looking for a great tour and experience the forests ( not too physically demanding) of Whistler, I highly recommend!

Surprise Happy Birthday with cookies and tea
Feb 2021 • Solo
Had an amazing afternoon in the woods with Conor and a group of fellow snow lovers. It was marvelous experience. I was touched to actually get snowboots at no cost to make my experience more pleasant. Conor did great job showing the trail, telling about plants, traditions. I was impressed by how he memorized everyone names and even created a little "happy birthday" experience for me with the whole group. Thank you for making me feel so warm on a winter day. Definitely will visit and use your services again and recommend to others. Regards!

We very much enjoyed our first snowshoe outing with our guide Jourdain. His knowledge about local fauna and how Whistler and the surrounding area grew into what it is today was informative and interesting.
