    It is a bit surrealistic, seeing wrecked train cars in the middle of the forest, but it is a very popular walk, and with some highly informative signs along the way!

    My wife and I took a day trip to the Callaghan Valley from Vancouver. We purchased day passes from the user friendly website. On Monday we left at 8am and arrived around 945am. Drive was easy, traffic was light. Woman running the rental shop was very good. Pleasantly surprised to learn that as grandparents we got the Monday parents discount. ($17 off rentals). Glorious sun filled day. Perfect conditions. Spectacular scenery. All sorts of terrain to choose from. Not crowded at all as we shared to trails with a only few families. We skied for about 4 hours and ate our packed lunch brought from home about half way thru. Returned our rented skis and had an easy sunny drive home. A great day in the snow. Wonderful facility practically in our backyard.

    This was our first time ever axe throwing. Naf at Forged was wonderful in showing us how to do it safely and still have lots of fun!

    I took the INTRO TO SPORT & LEADING course with MSAA and loved it! Our guide Corey did an excellent job in preparing us for our first lead climb and even though it rained, he found a great and dry spot for us to practice. After a few hours of training, everyone was ready and comfortable to lead climb on their own. Thanks for the great day and for pushing me to become a better climber.

    Johar, Connor, and Liam (definitely not Braden) were all excellent and made it such a great experience. Best ziplining experience that I've done even on a dreary day. Would absolutely come again. Thanks, guys!

    Kudos to Wayne and Andrew, our guide and driver for a tour of a brewery, distillery and market garden in the Pemberton area. Our group of 15 had a ton of fun and learned a lot. I recommend Whistler Tasting Tours for groups or individuals alike.

    Amazing guide service, incredible fishing and beautiful area to fish! I had some time become available last minute and Clint was very helpful in helping me arrange my first fishing visit to BC. He worked very hard to put me on some great fish despite some weather challenges. This included coaching me through landing my personal best fish on the fly which was a battle I will never forget. I look forward to going back in the near future. Great outfit and I'd recommend a trip to any level of angler.

    Such a fabulous spa experience. Facility is very clean and comfortable. Love the whole experience of going from hot to cold to relaxation. Massages were excellent. Staff is friendly.

    Chris was an excellent guide. Very informative and fun. It was a nice private tour (family of 4). We saw a couple of beautiful waterfalls and the top of the ski jumps used for the 2010 Vancouver Olympics. It was interesting to see and learn about Olympic Park.
    We were lucky to see a young bear while the sun was setting; eating up on the hill and then crossing the road right in front of our jeep. We were able to take some great pictures.

    You turn up at an out-of-the-way golf clubhouse by the river, and spot Eric drinking his first coffee of the day.
    He sits you down and gets you to fill out the disclaimers - quite a gruff, no-nonsense sort of chap but with - you gradualy realise - a great sense of humour. You put on lifejackets, get bitten by mossies, wander down to the riverside and a rickety wooden jetty, climb into the jetboat, a short safety briefing and have just the best fun for about an hour.

    Eric knows his stuff - the river, wildlife, and (importantly) how to pilot a jetboat. We didn't see too much wildlife but that wasn't the main reason for taking this trip - we had already had one or two safaris and float trips further east.

    He tells you stories as you start heading (slowly, at first) upriver. After a while he opens the throttle and you zoom, glide and bounce through the rapids. This thing can turn on a sixpence, as he shows you on several occasions. Occasionally we drift, or he "hovers" pointing upstream whilst idling.
    Then it's a stricter safety briefing before the much faster and bumpier trip back downstream.

    Throw in the scenery, gorgeous weather (at the time), a few thrills and big grins all around. A great experience, highly recommended.
