When you think of embarking on an adventure trip into a wilderness area, most people probably imagine that they would encounter other humans like hikers, photographers, or nature lovers like themselves…and often that is what other guests tells us they had in mind when the idea of a wilderness adventure initially came to mind.
But that is far from the reality of their first encounter with pristine natural wilderness, crystal clear alpine lakes, roaming ridge lines that cast their shadows through a sea of peaks and endless wild mountainous vistas that very few eyes have ever witnessed. This is the experience we strive hard to give each traveler on our guided remote wilderness tours. Our goal is to reveal the precious natural world and to peer deep into the untouched expansiveness that still exists in remote places, where weather, distance and other factors have made it too formidable for man to easily leave an imprint.
The experienced guides at Yoho Adventures love to bring people into these remote wilderness areas, where people and signs of habitation are days away. While these locations may not be easy to access on your own, and don’t invite the faint at heart, they are like a second home to our wilderness guides who can safely and expertly bring you to the more unique and exquisite encounters of your life. The Canadian wilderness is a place where wild animals roam and the weather gods hold power over your outdoor experience. Our remote adventure trips in British Columbia are primarily accessed by float plane, to some of the most incredible alpine hiking terrain on earth in the wild West Chilcotin Coast Mountains. This is the real deal when it comes to Canadian back country.
To experience the beauty of an alpine paradise almost alone — in the company of only your adventure companions and guides — is something not many hikers can say they’ve ever had the chance to do.
Most YoHo guests have experienced many years of hiking throughout the world, but few have ever experienced the true wilderness they experience on our guided hiking tours in British Columbia or New Zealand.
Can you think of the last time you’ve honestly been away from the crowd? When were you last able to step back and see nothing manmade — only to cast your eye across expansive wilderness and nature?
There is this feeling of hiking the most remote areas on earth – the feeling that you are insignificant against the grandiose mountains, glaciers, deep river valleys and dark crevasses that lie just beyond our bubble of concrete, glass and steel. There is an overwhelming sense that all our worries and daily irritations lose power over us when set against this sweeping expanse of breathtaking wilderness.
This is the blessing and value we experience in remote wilderness and why we chose to bring it to you through Yoho Adventures. For all of us at Yoho, this experience is a major aspect of our happiness and of our understanding of our place here on earth. To spend time in such wild places is a luxury few will ever have an opportunity to experience. We consider it our mission and an honor to help make it happen for as many people as we can. And we know , for all who do make this journey with us, the experience will stay with you always, enriching your life and the rest of your time here on earth.
