Skiing

On Cross-Country skis through the vast, white wilderness of British Columbia. On this trip you and your guide make day-trips based from one of our cabins or you ski from cabin to cabin. On skiing days you ski between 4 to 6 hours a day. Through valleys and descending from slopes.

Of course there is also time to rest in one of our cabins. Here you can enjoy real warmth, the heat of a woodstove. Together with our cook we prepare the meals and after a day of skiing in Canada from cabin to cabin, your gear and supplies has already been transported during the day to the new location.

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.
