Many families prefer the six-day canoe or the three-day canoe and three-day hike combo. Canoeing is fun and not as physically demanding as hiking, so six days of canoeing is a great trip for families.
We stay at different camps along the way, all with beaches and forest walks, which the young people love. On the canoe hike combo, in addition to three days of canoeing, there is a three-day mountain walk into the alpine meadows of our Fight Meadow Chalet.
The hut to hut hike is a true wilderness. There are no trails between the buildings so you want to be sure of your child's hiking abilities before coming. This is a great, challenging trip for the teen set. We have quite a few family groups who come through as high school graduation presents, as well as Family groups with a teenager who is starting to branch off into other interests and the parents want a memorable experience as well as time for bonding.
All of the trips require parental discretion, and we trust a parent's judgement. We have seen nine-year-olds that could paddle a whole day without a shrug, and some that probably wouldn't go without a motor! The parents know best. We have no age restrictions for this reason. We also offer a 25% discount for kids up to fourteen. We are a family operated outdoor guiding company and we are committed to offering your family an outdoor adventure of a lifetime at an affordable price.
