About Nature Trek Canada
We know how to provide a memorable experience that will last a lifetime, thanks to practical experience, thorough trip planning and direct and personal communication with you, the traveler. We are a small operation, by choice, because this is the best way to maintain attention to detail, keep a personal contact with you, and still get out and explore with you, which we just plain love to do.
After 24 years, Nature Trek Canada remains at the forefront of innovative wilderness travel. We feel that personal contact with each participant and attention to detail are crucial to provide an experience that will last a lifetime. Remaining a small but succesful company for this long is a testimony to our commitment and dedication. We respect the heritage and rights of Canada’s First Nations and limit our impact on the fragile nature of the places we visit. We do recognize our responsibility for an increase in CO2 emissions and to minimize our share, we support innovative projects through www.greatestplanet.org.
1% of our profit goes to local projects that protect Canada’s wilderness and educate people about its significance. We support The Land Conservancy of Canada (TLC) and the Wilderness Committee. We give many lectures and workshops every year and co-created the Ecoliteracy program for highschool students in British Columbia.
Lo Camps and Anne-Marie Linders are both wildlife biologists and are the co-authors of a scientific (but highly readable) book on Labrador caribou, published by McGill University Press. A publication on caribou in Ontario (Lake Superior) is also in the works.
Who are we?
Owner & Guide
The man behind NTC, Lo has designed and led 121 expeditions in northern Canada. He brings along a vast knowledge of wilderness, ecology and culture, as well as a wicked sense of humour to every trip he leads. But he can't be everywhere at once so he also relies on a small team of trusted guides.
Anne-Marie pulls the logistic strings of NTC's complex web from their Salt Spring Island base. But Anne-Marie has also guided trips in Alaska, Yukon and British Columbia and has been an equal partner in all research projects in Labrador, Ontario and Quebec.
Wilfried is a tourism consultant and teacher with considerable outdoor experience. He is our man in Europe and, living in the Netherlads, is available without a 9 hour time difference! Wilfried is also involved in sustainable tourism projects in Africa.
Didier has seen his fair share of the West and the North and has been NTC's dedicated webmaster since day 1. An accomplished musician, photographer and media wizzard, he calls the internet home (you can visit him at BrassensREDUX).
As a wildlife specialist, Bill has been on many research projects with Lo Camps. He is an expert woodsman and can be found pulling many strings behind the scenes in Labrador. Without Bill's support no Labrador expedition would materialize.
