Discover the wilderness, the wildlife, the mountains and the lakes in northern British Columbia – Canada. With Claw Mountain Outfitters you explore the untouched, pristine Canadian nature in a “Back to Basics” way. On foot, on horseback or on skis. Luxury for us means nature’s silence. Away from computers, mobile phones and packed roads. Because only then do you experience nature at its best.
Western Canada travel
What’s unique about Claw Mountain Outfitters is that we actually make a trip from A to B. And yes we do have an itinerary, but not a tight, rigid day-to-day schedule. There is enough space for own initiatives and at the end of your trip we fly you back by floatplane to where your trip started. Trips with us in the wilderness in Western Canada are never the same. The trips take you along lakes and rivers, through valleys and alpine meadows, over mountains and passes. Here the rhythm is determined by nature. The sun, the animals and the climate. Rain can turn a simple trip into a challenging and strenuous journey, or it can cause an otherwise quiet river to turn wild, so we cannot cross it and we must adjust our route.
Hiking trip Canada
What do you prefer during your journey through nature? Do you want to be active during your holiday and push yourself to the limit? Then our hiking adventures are perfect for you. During the hiking trip Canada, you hike through nature for about four to eight hours. On rest days we stay in beautiful locations where you are free to do what feels right to you. You can relax completely in the most impressive spots.
Horseback riding Canada
Another way to get to know your self is to be among wildlife. With Claw Mountain Outfitters you ride on horseback through real Canadian wilderness, together with a guide and wrangler. The horses very much feel your energy, even at a distance. So it is not only fantastic to discover Canada on horseback, but it is also a nice psychological experience. During the trip you will get to know your horse. You can see how he spikes his ears and how he sniffs to warn you when he smells wildlife. And you learn to trust your horse. Especially during a river crossing, when he finds his own way in the wild water.
Cross Country Skiing Canada
Travelling on ski’s through the vast, white wilderness of the Omineca Mountains is beyond comparison. On this trip you will not only make day trips on which you return to your cabin at the end of the day but you will also cross country ski from our cabins at Black Lake to our cabins at Toodoggone Lake.
Enjoy the beauty and the silence while you travel with just your friends on skis. Your gear will be transported for you.
Capture the beauty of Belle Lakes, the pass to Sheepcamp, the waterfall at Toodoggone Lake, the vastness of the valleys, the roughness of McClair Creek, the ravine through which it flows, the impermeability of willows and dwarf birches. Each and every one of them provides fantastic opportunities for stunning images. Not to mention Canadian wildlife, the flower and the weather. Photograph the setting sun, the rainbow and if you are lucky – the northern lights. The biggest chance of seeing this magical phenomenon is during our August trip.
Our journeys are great for photography. Whether you are a professional photographer or photography is your hobby. The wilderness of British Columbia offers some of the most photogenic sights in the world.
Next to Hiking, Horseback Riding and Skiing trips we also offer a Photography trip.
Because you have a lot of equipment with you, we transfer in a different way. During photo trips we travel several times by floatplane, from lake to lake. Our Photography trip includes a professional photographer and a guide.
