Out West Adventures
At Out West Adventures we are dedicated to taking our clients on a hike that lets them take in the beauty of British Columbia.
Our tours started as a way to help conserve what is left of the forests on Vancouver Island. We have some of the oldest trees in the world, including some that are thousands of years old. Without the visual knowledge of the area, we don't realize what it is that we are losing. To help keep our forests pristine for years to come, we take you out and show them to you first hand.
Our hikes are made for everyone from the first time hiker to the advanced. We have made most of our hikes for people who just want to get outside for the day and have fun.
We take all the work and planning out of a hike for you. We will plan and choose the wilderness area for you, so that all you have to do is come along and enjoy the surroundings.In a hurry? We aren't. We like to stop and smell the roses. Our hikes are made so we don't have a specific timetable. We just meander through the area and see what it has to offer, discussing how the world around us works. Taking photos and sight seeing is what we are all about. Never been hiking before? Not a problem. At Out West Adventures we will help you every step of the way. If you would like to call or e-mail us beforehand with your questions or concerns, we can give you tips and helpful ideas to ensure your comfort. Hiking is a great way to not only enjoy the great outdoors, but it is a healthy way to set goals. That is why we want everyone to join us, from the beginners to the more advanced.
Some of the hiking we do is really remote. We have an information section that helps explain our hikes. Be prepared for weather changes as well as we live on the West Coast for a reason. The rain forest is vast and beautiful; however, it is a rain forest. Make sure you bring gear that you don't mind getting wet and dirty.
Out West Adventures will pick you up at any local location. This means if you're visiting, don't have a car or just don't want to drive it isn't a problem. We are happy to have passengers with us. Because some of our trips can be in remote areas, please be prepared for long car rides. We also suggest to bring the proper gear. Sun screen, medications or anything else you might need. You do not need to bring any other special gear when hiking with us; only a good pair of shoes and proper clothing. We do not use any special gear other then our back packs.
