Rugged beauty and jaw-dropping landscapes await on our West Coast Adventure hiking tour.

Step into a largely undiscovered world filled to the brim with temperate rainforest, towering mountains and glaciers on our 5-day West Coast Adventure hiking trip.

Nowhere else can you experience such photogenic landscapes complete with snowcapped peaks, panoramic ocean views, beaches, towering waterfalls and interesting rock formations.
