Remember your place in the circle as you respectfully enter grizzly bear sanctuaries in remote areas of BC or travel quietly in a canoe to view the spectacle of the salmon runs.

Tuck yourself away in the golden grasslands of the Cariboo amid pelicans and sandhill cranes. Hear the ancestral knowledge of Indigenous ocean guides as they lead you to where the humback whales swim and sing.

Get closer to the wild than ever before with Indigenous hosts and the assistance of their intimate knowledge of the land and its four-legged, winged, and finned inhabitants.

Tsek Hot Springs

hot springs

Adjacent to the Lillooet River, in the Pemberton Volcanic Belt, you will find Tsek Hot Springs and the sacred location of the In-SHUCK-ch and Sttimc people (nkkwtsa) of British Columbia. The nkkwtsa established a permanent village of (s7)stken (pit houses) and plank houses along the banks of the Lillooet River, and a series of trails through the nearby forests to hunting grounds and neighbouring villages. The mineral hot springs at Tsek provided our ancestors with physical and spiritual wellness, while the loose, sandy nature of the soil made the cedar tree roots grow long and straight. Tseks hot and cold springs became the most important spiritual site in the lower Lillooet River Valley. It is said that the cool spring served as a healing pool where the Elder mothers trained men to be chiefs, watchmen, and other important positions in the In-SHUCK-ch Nation. Pronounced chick, Tsek Hot Springs (also known as Skookumchuck Hot Springs and St. Agnes Well Hot Springs) has continuously been occupied and utilized by the Sttimc people as a location to heal and cleanse the body and spirit centuries before Europeans arrived along our shores.
