With the Winter Olympics recently completed, this summer is your best, once-in-a-lifetime chance to visit and experience beautiful British Columbia. Nestled between glaciated mountains and lush forests, this is the perfect location to enjoy rock climbing, whitewater kayaking, mountain biking and fantastic summer skiing.

Our British Columbia Adventure offers summer skiing and snowboarding opportunities on Blackcomb glacier, coastal rock climbing of the second largest granite monolith in the world, mountain biking on the famous trails of Whistler Resort and a whitewater kayaking school on the exciting Cheakamus River.
