While travel is out of the picture this year, you can still explore local gems with your bubble. We’ve curated this Ultimate BC Gift Guide in hopes to inspire you to think outside the traditional gift box by gifting an experience everyone on your list will love.
Gifting a Yervana Adventure is a sustainable gift option (avoid adding more clutter around the house!), plus you’ll be directly supporting a Local guide and most importantly, giving your loved ones an experience they won’t soon forget!
Read on for your 2020 gift-giving inspiration.
5 Ultimate BC Winter Adventures
1. Snowshoe the Callaghan Valley Trail in Whistler
One of the best ways to spend a wintery day with the family. Yervana Local, Michael, will guide you through a mysterious forest and down an old trapper’s path known as the Medicine Trail. You’ll be able to capture beautiful family moments amongst the giant cedar, fir, and hemlock trees, and sample teas made from medicinal plants that grow on the route.
2. Hit the slopes in Revelstoke or Golden
Up for a little backcountry Adventure? See the magnificent Revelstoke mountains from a whole new height while heli-skiing! Fly with your family amongst the stunning peaks and unbelievable vistas. Make it a holiday they will never forget as they ski legendary powder in untouched terrain in Revelstoke. This is an experience of a lifetime for avid skiers! Plus, Canadian residents receive 20% off all season long!
Prefer to keep your feet on the ground? Explore the perfect lines, alpine peaks, and long glacier ski runs in Revelstoke with Yervana Local and backcountry ski guide, Adam. Alternatively, discover the legendary Rogers Pass in Golden with Yervana Local, Tyler.
3. Try snowmobiling in Whistler
Explore the backcountry on 4-wheels! We have two Adventures to choose from, both are a fine balance between exhilarating and relaxing. Either start your morning exploring the backcountry all the way to a rustic cabin on Sproatt Mountain for a full Canadian Yukon breakfast. Or end your evening on a magical dusk ride, complete with hot chocolate, marshmallows, and chats around the fire.

4. Private Skyride and Ski Lesson on Grouse Mountain
Surprise the friend who has everything with an exclusive gondola ride up the mountain and ski lesson on Grouse. They won’t be expecting a gift like this and won’t soon forget the experience!
5. Forest Bathing in Chilliwack
Perhaps someone on your list is in need of a breath of fresh air? Help them get away from it all with an afternoon of forest bathing in Chilliwack. ‘Bathing’ in fresh forest air can be a great way to destress, improve your mood, and reconnect with yourself – something we most likely all need after this wild year. Connect with Local, Melody, to book this grounding Adventure.
The best gifts are just a click away
No matter which experience you choose to book with Yervana, you can find the perfect adventure for everyone on your list. After all, who said kids are the only ones who should have fun?
