Immerse yourself in the culture of the North American First Nations people on one of these wilderness tours in the BC Rocky Mountains. The native North American culture is a truly fascinating thing to experience, as is their rich history in the Canadian Rocky Mountains. Both are inseparable from their environment, those wide expanses of nature and wilderness that gave them reason for being, and these unique adventure packages were created to give you the opportunity to have this experience for yourself-walk away with some of those "beautiful and good things"-instead of just imagining it.
The Elk Runner package is a unique weekend based on traditional native teachings where adventure will take on many new and exciting dimensions - physical, mental, and emotional. In many cultures, elk teachings are those of reflection and stamina; the ability to engage with your life and decisions in a way of understanding, compassion, community, and acceptance. This weekend, you will first have the opportunity to reflect on and build your connection with the earth and natural world on a nature walk that will allow you to relax and have fun in your new remote surroundings. There is much that nature gives us and much we have forgotten about it. This package can reconnect that bond between the earth and the human spirit, instilling you with the renewed endeavor and understanding of Elk.
The Spirit Walker package was created to give you an exciting wilderness adventure, including hiking, backpacking, exploring, and river rafting, alongside the opportunity to experience the wilderness through native eyes. Connecting with the natural world in this way will be an enlightening and refreshing experience that will also help you relax in your new remote surroundings as we partake in some native ceremonies at the end of the week. The early ancestors of the Kootenay River valley and surrounding areas become our spiritual guides this week as we have fun digging down into the essence of the Canadian Rocky Mountains and beyond.
