Back to Basics

With our adventure travel you are at one with nature, in the wilderness. Away from computers, mobile phones and packed roads. You truly feel part of nature. At Claw Mountain Outfitters, we love nothing more than to take you into the wilderness in the northern part of British Columbia (Western Canada). On horseback, on foot or in winter on skis.


Get Back to Basics. Literally. Drink clean water from the creeks, wash yourself in the river and grill your own fish that you caught that day, sat aside an open campfire. We think that simplicity is the key to being at one with nature. And so, you live for fourteen days without things such as electricity, running water and a hot shower. Luxury to us means silence and tranquillity. Our trips are unlike any other trip you can find. At Claw Mountain Outfitters, you’re not simply booking an active holiday – you’re embarking on an adventure.



Claw Mountain Outfitters explores the Canadian wilderness in summer, as well as in winter. During our adventure travels in summer, you travel on foot, or on horseback. In the winter we travel on cross-country skis. The groups are small. You have considerable freedom of choice during the trip. From our base camp we cross the Omineca Mountains to Chukachida Lake - or in the opposite direction, depending on the start date of the trip.

During the journey we make our way through the wilderness in Northern British Columbia. An area that few people ever get to see. In this pristine wilderness you really feel away from everything and you live in nature’s rhythm. The nearest cities, Prince George and Smithers, can only be reached by floatplane, a journey that takes up to one and a half hours.

Your guides

For our guides Rick and Bert going on these adventurous journeys is not work, but it’s a lifestyle. A belief. Waking up in a landscape where silence prevails, where you wash yourself in a stone-cold creek, where every day is a new adventure – that, for them, is what makes them feel alive. In the immeasurable, vast remote wilderness of Western Canada, not only do they live here in the summer, they’re also here throughout the winter. With our experienced guides you feel at ease among moose, bears and wolves.
