What Our Explorers Are Saying

This adventure was an absolute treat. We lucked out with a beautiful sunny day in Whistler and couldn't have asked for a better time climbing around between colourful wildflowers, steep cliffs, and amazing views. Our guides, JJ and Rob, were incredibly knowledgeable about everything from mountaineering to BC's coastal geology and their passion for what they do was infectious. Via Ferrata was the perfect way to get a little taste of mountaineering without having to have technical experience and all the gear - I would recommend this adventure for anyone and everyone! Thank you so much for a 10/10 day experience! :)

Water biking on the river was such a nice way to get out on the water and spend an afternoon in Kamloops! Natrisha was super accommodating when booking my adventure and the whole experience was super smooth and enjoyable. The bikes are easy to ride and well-balanced so this would be an awesome activity for all ages!

- Kellie, Kamloops: Thompson River Water Bike Adventure, July 2021

One of the best adventures I have done in my entire life!!! FX is a pro and makes the day so enjoyable. This is one of the most unique experiences you can do in the lower mainland, if you consider yourself outdoor minded and love exploring and adventure you MUST do this!!!

- Jason, Canyoning Adventure, June 2020

AMAZING!! So much fun, I can't stop talking about it. It's like flying a Magic Carpet across the lake. The location is perfect, super close to Kelowna yet no swimmers and very little boat traffic, so you can focus on learning, then carving and cruising. The team are super pumped to share their stoke for e-Foiling, with clear and concise instruction. While it sounds tricky, once you're on the water, it's not as hard as you'd think. Strongly encourage anyone with event the slightest interest to give MSLR a try, you won't regret it!
