About
Visit us at: stepitupadventures.ca Our hikes are private, you will NOT be paired up with other hikers. Minimum 2 person for this tour. What makes this activity unique is that our team gives you the ability to explore the Nottawasaga Bluffs caves in the winter, a destination usually only visited in the summer. The contrast between the caves walls, snow and ice is an incredible sight to behold. Additionally, your guide will customize your experience based on your interests. All guests will experience the same trail entering and exiting the caves, but your guide will customize your exploration of the caves based on your abilities and interests. After working up an appetite on your hike we encourage you to try one of our local establishments such Giffen's Country Market in Glen Huron or one of the numerous cafes for a warm beverage in Creemore.

      Myself and a friend completed a 3-day/2-night hike with Step it Up Adventures two weeks ago. The lookouts and caves surpassed anything we had anticipated to see. Our guide was very knowledgeable, capable and taught us a lot about back country camping; so much so that I am now planning my next back country trip without a guide. I highly recommend this trip for anyone interested in truly experiencing the Bruce Peninsula, beyond the popular and accessible tourist hot spots. We actually found the less visited areas of the shoreline like Cave Point to be much more impressive and beautiful.

      Would Definitely Do This Again
      This was an amazing trip and it was great to go with someone so knowledgable for my first time doing this style of camping. Sue was able to help me pivot when I forgot my sleep mat and helped me with my bag weight. The views were extraordinary and I couldn't believe half the time that I was still in Ontario. This trip has helped me with my confidence to try this again, maybe even on my own or with my son.

      Awesome evening hike.
      Signed up as part of my birthday celebrations and treated to an evening hiking out to the caves and exploring. Not gonna spoil it - but we were glad of the crampons and head torches supplied by Lisa and Sue who are clearly in their element. Both guides are warm and welcoming, professional, knowledgeable about the area and effortlessly attentive to the needs of the Group. They were right about me taking an extra layer! I am very happy to recommend Step it Up Adventures and will definitely be signing up on another tour. Thanks guys!!!

      An evening hike with great views, a good mix of people, and outdoor activity.
      I joined Step it Up Adventures for a night hike and had to write to recommend it to others in the Collingwood area. I had an amazing time! The 3 guides were knowledgable, super-friendly and led us through a great experience. As a Collingwood resident and hiker, I thought I knew all the great spots, but this was a new trail for me. It was also fantastic to experience at night. The guides were well-prepared and helped other hikers when needed. A truly great time for novice and experienced hikers. I recommend using Step it Up Adventures for a great day or night of activity with friends.

      A customized experience
      Our guide Lisa was so encouraging and knowledgeable! She customized the experience to our abilities and gave us lots of information about the caves. Would definitely hire them again if we come back to the area.

      wonderful winter hiking
      The views in the snow cave are stunning. Going uphill during the winter season may require a little more effort but Sue is very friendly and helpful with us along the way. Over we had a great time together.

      Great hike with great advice about gear.
      This was a great hike; the leader was knowledgeable and set a comfortable pace. I would book with her again. She not only knows the area well she has knowledge about equipment and planning backwoods trips. One great take away for me was where to get a better set of crampons for my boots. The ones she lent me were perfect and much better than the pair I had been using.

      Off the beaten path!
      Awesome tour. We both are new to snowshoeing, Lisa and Sue were patient and helpful, we didn’t feel rushed at all and our trip took longer than our booking cause we are new. The tour was so worthwhile! Beautiful views/pics, the girls are so knowledgeable about tour location and true adventurists! Very fun to be around, I would highly recommend!

      Awesome conversation and guided tour through Copeland!
      I’m so grateful to have had a guided hike with Step it up Adventures! I had never heard of Copeland Forest which is incredibly close to where I live and even though the trails weren’t well marked, the guide had no problem navigating through and keeping to the established timeline of the hike. They welcomed my dog and were very easy to talk to. I will definitely be joining another hike soon!

      Excellent hike in the Woods
      Excellent hike in the Copeland Forest with Addy and Sue. I was guided with the group through the beautiful trails of Oro Medonte and even had a cookie provided. My dog was welcome and the terrain was not too difficult to navigate, but would suggest some sort of trail shoe/boot for grip. The guides are welcoming and professional and have a lot of knowledge of the area. Would highly recommend!

    Sue was very friendly and knowledgeable about the area and trails. We got into some hidden treasures like small hidden caves and found some interesting old carvings. We enjoyed a night hike where we heard a pack of coyotes in the distance. Great trails beautiful terrain will definitely go with Sue again!

    Our night hike was fantastic! The caves are a completely different experience at night and the coyotes howling in the distance really made out night. The night hikes are not as popular as the day, but they are truly some of my favourite experiences. We hope to see you again on another Step it Up Adventure tour. Your hiking guide, Sue.

    What a great family hike ! It was a perfect distance for our family. The views from the lookout are amazing and the caves were very fun and interesting. Sue brought headlamps which we needed in some of the caves.
    Sue is a great guide she is really passionate about the history and geology in this area. She’s great to be around and kept us all safe as we climbed and crawled !
    My kids are excited to go with her again! As am I!

    We are so glad that you enjoyed your hiking and caving adventure. Your kids were amazing, so curious and adventurous crawling to the bottom of even the deepest cave. They definitely needed the headlamps, which we are happy to provide to all of our guest. We would love to host your family again and hope to see you on another one of our adventures.

    I met thé tour guide at the entrance to the trail network. She arrived early to make sure that when I pulled up, I knew I was in the right spot.

    That was a nice touch, as the hike starting point is a little off the beaten path.

    After the hike began, our tour guide was obviously very knowledgeable about the trail system and that added to the comfort level.

    But what really made it for me was that my dog was allowed to accompany us!

    We had a fabulous time with Sue out on the trails! She is knowledgeable and makes you feel comfortable with your abilities. We had so much fun exploring lesser known areas of the trail and expansive caves in the area. We got to see some really cool markings and hear some of the history! She was well prepared with headlamps and crampons for all. We look forward to booking with her again!

    New to Simcoe County and was a great first experience going for a hike up in the area. Sue came fully prepared and is extremely knowledgeable of the area and other great places to hike. She’ll show you spots you’ll 100% miss if you go on your own. She is very friendly and accommodating… would definitely recommend.

    This was an awesome hike and Sue made it such a great experience! Sue arrived early to check out the track conditions before we got there and had gear such as crampons packed so that we could be fully prepared for the hike. We had a lot of fun exploring the area and going into caves/crevasses that we never would have known existed had we gone alone. Thanks Sue for showing us around!

    We are very happy that you enjoyed your hike with us.
