Canada’s wilderness is sometimes best enjoyed on foot. We show you the hikes you could easily do on your own & those where you will be better off with a guide.

Guided or non-guided overnight hikes

We have a very good idea of the hikes you could easily do on your own or those where you will be better off with an experienced guide. We also have the inside track on popular destinations like the West Coast Trail (BC) and the equally beautiful but lesser known East Coast Trail in Newfoundland. Nature Trek Canada’s directors and guides have wandered many of Canada’s long-distance trails & treks and can match you with a destination that fits your ability and intererest.

Let us find the perfect backpacking match for you.
We do the leg work… You’ll do the grunt work!
