Vancouver Island West – one of the last places where a wildland still meets a wild ocean”  Bertie Gregory, National Geographic wildlife filmmaker

We pioneered guided trips on the West Coast Trail starting in the mid-1980s. A company must promise and deliver an experience that meets expectations, in order to achieve longevity. Let our experience create a safe, and wondrous adventure for you.

Our  West Coast Trail guided hike along Vancouver Island’s rugged west coast, is 75 km (47 miles) of the rain forest, beaches, sandstone cliffs, rugged headlands, rivers, light stations, and shipwreck relics. It is a hike that should only be attempted by those who are physically and psychologically prepared to take on its challenges.

The West Coast Trail is a recognized world class hike. Many hikers place it atop their “bucket list” of adventures to complete in one’s lifetime.

“Hello Len, I just wanted to let you know how fantastic I think your team is. Your guides made this West Coast Trail trip truly the trip of a lifetime for us. I’ve been to 24 countries and have had lots of amazing experiences, but this one trumps them all. Although we decided not to tell folks how fantastic the food was, we didn’t want anyone to think it was a “walk in the park”….thanks for everything!” ~Lyrin Murphy, Delaware, OH
