Family Trips

Looking for more than just an outdoor tour for your family? Interested in seeing areas not frequented by tourists and learning things along the way? Want to learn more about the natural environment, area history and the local culture? We can build you a unique, custom program that you won’t find anywhere else!

"Landon had arranged a tour of Vancouver Island for our family including various hiking, kayaking and camping trips. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip. Landon not only ensured that we were safe and comfortable but went the extra mile to engage all of us with the biology and natural surroundings of the various ecosystems we encountered. Our children were thrilled with the adventure."

-Carole and Alex Damnjanovic

School Groups

Are you a teacher looking for a fun outdoor experience where your students will actually learn something and retain what they learned? Western Educational Adventures will provide you with that experience, including a stress-free planning process where we take care of all the details.

"As an educator, my hope is students experience situations that help them develop in many ways. Being in nature together is the perfect opportunity to build upon their curiosity, resilience, initiative, balance, integrity, collaboration and empathy. Landon and his team at Western Educational Adventures did a fantastic job of organizing and running our "Outdoor Day" with Grade 6 and Grade 7 students. Our students were engaged and appropriately challenged throughout the day as they learned to work and play together. Both parent and student feedback was overwhelmingly positive and I do not hesitate to recommend Landon and his team to other school groups. "

Other Groups

We also create and deliver custom programs for a variety of other groups, including, but not limited to corporate groups and family reunions!

Available activities for custom programs

While we focus on running sea kayaking, canoeing and hiking programs we also often run many other activities such as downhill skiing, climbing, navigation training, orienteering, lifesaving courses and more!

"My kids had a excellent spring ski camp with Landon. He created a plan, coordinated with the resort, and gave us lots of feedback. His technical knowledge, energy and sense of fun worked really well with the kids."
