What a great time to explore this spectacular area of the North Channel. We’ve added this 4 day trip to our early season schedule. [Read more…] about Benjamin Islands in June
This year we are offering several opportunities to participate in longer more challenging (and rewarding) tours. These tours will cover more that 100 klms of gorgeous Georgian Bay and Lake Superior Coastlines for up to 12 days or glorious adventures. To learn more look for BIG trips on the top trips menu.
Paddle Canada Level 2 course starts in June with two available options. A 5 day base camp program and a kayak touring option that lasts 6 glorious days.
In addition to Rikki Harper, Kevin Juckers, PJ Nyckilchuk and Alex Provost, our staff from 2021, we would like to welcome back Sarah Wise. Sarah has been guiding with Horizons Adventures for at least 6 years. Just one of the many people that make Horizons Adventures shine. Find out about all the great people that Bring Adventure to Life on our staff page Our Leaders.
One of the biggest challenges for all our new customers is the concept of what to bring and how to pack it. Some of you are used to “Canoe Camping” or “Car Camping”. Others have experience Back Packing and still others have no experience at all. Guess which one of these has the edge when it comes to Sea Kayak Camping? Surprisingly, the Back Packers have the closest relatable experience to camping out of a sea kayak. The reason for this is the concept of size and to a lesser degree, weight. Back packers are experts with both these concepts. Once you’ve had to carry something around on your back for a few days and fit it into a small, but organized space, you quickly learn the nuance of efficiency in this department. If you’ve registered for one of our trips you’ll receive an information package to help you get ready. Still, we find there is more to learn before you arrive. Customers have trouble deciding on the size and type of sleeping bag and sleeping pad; how many clothes to bring and shoes to wear. We don’t want to repeat what we’ve put into the information package but we’ve posted some helpful tips on the video below as well as some pictures here to help you along with this challenge. Please give us feedback on this page and it’s contents so we can improve it.
We have extended the BRING A FRIEND offer into 2020. Sign up, bring a friend and both of you will save 15%. Contact us and ask for the coupon to save you and your friend 15%. If you don’t have any friends, you can still save on the Early Bird specials for 2021. Unfortunately you can’t do both but you might make a friend on trip and that makes the offer priceless.
