Time spent in the wilderness is never wasted. For Indigenous peoples, activities on the land are opportunities to share stories, collect food and medicine, and receive the beautiful return from creation.

Indigenous communities in BC share the beauty of their traditional territories in new ways. The experience of being on the land now includes groomed golf courses throughout British Columbia and boat rides on rivers and ocean.

Nature-based learning in the expansive Rockies, guided walking tours in what is now downtown Vancouver, and cultural sharing on the pristine beaches and forested coastlines of the Pacific Northwest provide opportunities to relax and transform your vacation into a fascinating adventure.
