“The memories of the wildflowers on the mountainsides will live forever in our minds.
The lupines, glacier lilies, Indian paintbrushes and other flowers all create a Technicolor feast that helped us hike on for even better views. This grandeur was emphasized because your organization was top notch. Our guide was superb. Thank you for making our hiking trip so memorable.”
“The scenery is fantastic, the flowers are amazing, and the mountains are lovely. I’ll treasure it.”

My friends really enjoyed hiking with you in the South Chilcotin Mountains.
They talked about the beautiful scenery, the comfortable camps, and the super food… but always came back to the guides who worked hard, always with a smile, and made the trip possible. So, on behalf of my friends I would like to thank you for a job well done. Too bad I had to cancel at the last minute and stay home to lick my wounds. Next year, I will be on the trip with you.

The setting is magnificent; the ambience warm and inviting. Because I had hurt my knee several days before arriving, I didn’t expect to explore the area or alpine meadows. But, because of our wonderful guide, Birgit, and your willingness to make things work for me, I walked the trails and rode your gentle horse Montana to Brett Camp where we stayed for two nights.
My husband, Merv, took delight in photographing everything from bighorn sheep to the tiny flowers that carpeted the terrain. Being a vegetarian, I was impressed with the wide variety of dishes that were prepared with me in mind. Thank you for making our holiday such a memorable one.
