The Wild Side of Nature

Travel the backcountry and mountain valleys and peaks with Gary Zorn who has a lifetime of grizzly bear and wildlife experience and knowledge. Gary’s passion for the ‘big bears’ has led him into the backcountry for many years where he has observed the bears, their habits and habitats. This has provided him with a wealth of knowledge and much entertainment. You will learn much about the bears that few people have had the chance to experience.

 

Trek into the land beyond the tree and a world of spectacular mountain peaks, pure fresh air, exhilarating freedom and the wild side of nature. Accessing the summer alpine habitat of the wildlife allows you to quietly walk the game trails that the bears, moose, caribou and mountain goats, wolves and wolverines and other mountain dwellers have travelled for eons. Learn to recognize the tracks of the different animals and meet these mountain dwellers in their natural habitat. Learn about wildlife and the high alpine plants and birds that make up this unique part of the natural world. Throughout the summer the wild flowers blanket the alpine meadows – from glacial lilies to the tiny mountain heather.

BC's Prime Wildlife Viewing

Pass quietly through lush boreal forests on your way to the alpine heights. Listen to the wilderness, the mountains and the forests – hear them speak to your soul as your alpine adventure unfolds. Hear the creeks and streams tumbling down the mountainsides voicing the pure ancient wisdom of mother nature. Hear the multitudes of birds singing and chirping, the scurrying of small creatures, the voice of the wind sighing through the trees or just listen to the golden silence in alpine meadows surrounded by nature’s palette of colourful flowers and plant life.

 

Feel the winds as they swirl around the mountain peaks. Travel among the wildlife observing grizzlies, mountain goats, mountain caribou, wolves, black bear and moose in their natural wild habitat. This trekking experience is a unique learning experience with insights into the very soul of Canada’s most unique features. It is adventure in the backcountry far from the beaten tourist tracks. Learn from your guide as you wend your way to new heights. Challenge your outdoor skills and your sense of adventure.

 

Bear and wildlife viewing by jet boat on Cariboo River in Cariboo River Park.  We jet boat up the river and then spend the day drifting down watching the bears, wildlife and birds.  There are some very exciting and special sights on the river.  A short hike from the river takes to Spirit Rock where you truly feel the spirit of nature.

 

Hiking the Peaks and Ridges

Hiking the mountain trails is an age old non-intrusive and environmentally sustainable way to explore, discover and experience nature and harken back to experience a slower pace. You walk the peaks and ridges fully enjoying the connection with nature, the wildlife, peace and tranquility, and beauty of the alpine landscape amid the mountain peaks. Sit at the edge of a cool crystal clear high mountain tarn reflecting the icy blue sky and the amazing mountain terrain or under a millennia old glacier. Reflect on Mother Nature’s finest moments.

 

Wilderness Lodge Comforts

In the late afternoon return to the comfort of the lodge for the wonderful country style Canadian cuisine the lodge is known for. Enjoy the evening around an outdoor campfire or beside the lodge fireplace and review the day’s adventure, tell stories, or just contemplate the pure beauty of your day.

 

This is an ideal adventure trip and photographic safari for those who love to get away from it all in pure undisturbed wilderness and nature. We have many hiking areas that are suitable for people of reasonable fitness levels and endurance. Terrain ranges from very easy to more rugged on the ridges we travel between the peaks. None of the hikes are exceptionally strenuous, but require some good steady walking. Fully guided by experienced mountain guides makes this an exhilarating carefree adventure.
