Go with a guide
Our guided expeditions let you enjoy the wild side of Canada to the fullest and in complete safety, whether hiking, canoeing, kayaking or trekking. You bring your arms and legs, we provide the rest.
We go to very special places that are less traveled, where we strike the right balance between exploring and understanding our surroundings. We travel in small groups (5-9 people), walk softly and respect the rights of the First Nations whose lands we visit. Our goal is to inspire you and give you a new sense of wonder for the wilderness around us. Our attention to detail and extensive knowledge of the areas we visit ensure that a trip with us will be truly memorable.
If your travel plans cannot accommodate a full-fledged expedition, we offer shorter, cost-effective guided trips that can easily dovetail a Canadian vacation.
If none of our regular trips suits your needs or calls to you, we can design a custom expedition that will do just that for you.
Join the happy campers!
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.
