We spent a week hiking the Bruce Peninsula with Zain and Muffy from Explorer’s Tread. It was a self-guided hike with drop-off and pick-up most days and a few days where we were able to walk directly to our accommodations. What a wonderful experience. The hike was well planned, well mapped and every effort was taken for safety. We had a GPS device that we could use for emergencies and so the good folks at Explorer’s Tread knew where we were—just in case. The best thing was that Zain and Muffy lived in the area and were probably the most infectiously enthusiastic representatives for this beautiful region of Canada. They knew every aspect of the trails we took and gave great advice about places to stop for lunch, places to explore for dinner and “special spots” along the trails that we absolutely should not miss. Both Zain and Muffy are first-responders and are incredibly safety-oriented. I had a miserable blister on the bottom of my foot on the last day and Muffy fixed up my foot well enough so I could do the 20km hike with no difficulty (she was my hero after that!). My husband, daughter and I had an absolutely wonderful time on this hike and STRONGLY recommend you consider going with this great team. They will take very good care of you and allow you to enjoy the best of what the Bruce Peninsula has to offer. (Just watch out for the poison ivy!)

Stryker Family! So glad you enjoyed yourself. And a huge THANK YOU and YOUR WELCOME! Glad the blisters didn’t get in the way to finish your hike. Come back anytime, there is certainly more things to see and do! Happy adventuring! Cheers Z&M

Zane was a great guide and cares about safety first. He knew the waters well and was a great guide. We had a wonderful morning kayaking in Lion's Head. We took the Beneath the Lion's Head tour. Zane also provided us with snacks in the middle of the excursion to give us that extra energy boost to kayak back. Would definitely do this again! The waters were gorgeous!

A great trip under the Lion's Head. A great trainer, Justin. The weather was fantastic and the water almost still. Could not ask for better. I highly recommend it.

The beneith the lions head was an amazing kayak adventure! We had a small group of 6 including our very knowledgeable instructor Justin. It is a very well instructed trip, safety is the biggest concern to them! My boyfriend was dreading it the whole week and when we finally went he loved it and wants to do it again!

My husband and I had a full day trip with Zane in lions head kayaking and then hiking to the lions head lookout which offers a magnificent view. Zane was a wonderful guide full of knowledge about the area and ensured we had a wonderful adventure. We kayaked back to the harbour we had started from but stopped along the way for a gourmet lunch that he prepared on a rock beach with spectacular views. A perfect day!
