We’re an independent, locally owned tour company established in 2010 and based in Red Deer, Alberta.
Our goal is to inspire you to play outside and help you experience your adventure so that you can discover the food, people and natural beauty of the region. Whether it’s a winter sightseeing tour exploring the ice bubbles of Abraham Lake, heading out on a day hike away from the crowds or spending an evening snowshoeing under the stars, we’re here to help you find your adventure.
We believe that adventure is about doing things that are new and different for each of us, doing things that can be a little scary but that also make us curious to explore further.
As far as we’re concerned, food is part of all great outdoor adventures. It keeps us fueled on the trail, helps us slow down to enjoy the moment over lunch, and gives us an excuse to get together and share the memories we’ve made along the way. That’s why we include great local food in everything we do, from the tours to our new Basecamp + Cafe in Capstone at Riverlands on the edge of downtown Red Deer and Waskasoo Park.
Across all the activities and tours we offer, our goal has always been the same: to create memorable experiences. Anybody can go hiking, snowshoeing or sightseeing. Our tours go beyond that, from the stories shared by the guides to the cup of hot chocolate waiting for you at the bus after a day of skiing, we look after the details so that you can spend your day enjoying your adventure.
The Basecamp + Cafe includes parts of each of our previous locations, like our original booking desk and ice pop carts.
Since 2015 we’ve sold our ice pops, hot chocolate mix and handmade marshmallows at markets throughout Central Alberta. All of these, along with our sandwiches and soups are now available daily at our Basecamp + Cafe.
Get lost in the moment: Fun, shared experiences combined with breathtaking landscapes and amazing people create moments that naturally immerse us, making it easy to forget about daily life.
Simple is better: Life isn’t that complicated. Celebrate the simple pleasures, the raw beauty of nature and the connections with people you meet along the way.
Embrace the unexpected: Going on an adventure off the beaten path means that things are less structured. The best moments happen when you leave the checklist behind to create your own path.
Do the right thing: Caring for the environment and each other is not a trend, it’s part of living. Leave nothing but footprints, take nothing but pictures. Collect memories, not things.
Focus on the long term: Build relationships and memories that last. Taking the time to enjoy the journey will transform you.
