We no longer offer scheduled, public expeditions as we shifted our focus on the needs of individual travelers. That being said, we do know a thing or two about leading groups into the wilderness, after 27 years of doing just that!. If you know of a few friends or like-minded individuals with a taste for the wilds, let’s talk, we’ll only be too happy to come up with something exciting for you. In 2019, we’ll be taking such groups to the Yukon and Labrador, for example…
A guided expedition lets you enjoy the wild side of Canada to the fullest and in complete safety, whether the focus is on hiking, canoeing, kayaking, rafting or trekking. You bring your arms and legs, we provide everything else. We go to very special places that are less traveled, and we strike the right balance between exploring and understanding our surroundings. We travel in small groups, 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 one for the books. Dream up a trip… the Canadian sky is the limit!
We still offer several shorter, cost-effective guided trips along British-Columbia’s west coast, our home and playground, a land as wild as it is beautiful.
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.
