The Real-Life Series of

Survivor

British Columbia’s wilderness is filled with breathtaking beauty, leaving all who visit in awe. But imagine being stranded in this wild place for a day or two? Getting lost in thousands of acres of untouched land can be unforgiving. How does anyone survive the raw elements of nature on their own? Our special informative and creative half-day adventure, The Survival Spirit Experience, can show you how and answer any question you may have. It’s filled with a series of survival techniques that may come in handy one day, or night.

Our guides have extensive wilderness experience and an incredible story or two. But first up comes an introduction on how to safely navigate remote and wild places, even when you’re not lost. Encountering wild animals can be scary so we’ll share a few ground rules to help give you the confidence to keep safe.

Then it’s off into the woods for hands-on survival training. Finding a source of water is always a priority, even before scavenging for edibles. You’ll be surprised how many plants are edible in the wilds of British Columbia. Learn to identify the ones that are safe and those to stay away from.

Finding a suitable place to build a shelter is next, gathering the right materials, and then building it. Shelters can make the difference when it turns cool at night or it starts to rain. Then learn to build a fire with the use of natural kindling, It’s around the fire where you might hear a survival story or two from our guides.

The Survivor series is capped off with a lesson to find your way back home, using the sun for directions and looking for landmarks as a guide.

Get into the spirit and enjoy the call of the wild with our Survival Spirit Experience!
