Classes & Tours
We are pleased to announce that we are able to provide both classroom instruction and photo tours. We have set courses/photos tours and we can also provide custom classes/tours.

COVID restrictions are coming off but it is still not clear that we are over it. So, going forward we are doing things slightly differently. Instead of setting dates, only to have to cancel them, we are outlining the tours we have done in the past and leaving the dates open.
We will take tours of as little as three people and as many as twelve. If you are interested in one of our tours, contact me with the date you are available and the number of people to attend and we will arrange it from there. All times are approximate and can be adjusted to meet your schedule.
The tour starts on a Friday evening, with a full day on the Saturday and concludes Sunday afternoon. Participants are responsible for their own accommodations and meals. However we can arrange a block booking of rooms with a local hotel. All the photo sites are easily accessed from the roadway and involve no more than an easy fifteen minute walk. For more details contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
David Thompson Country/ Abraham Lake
The format is like the Jasper Tour. We will start Friday evening, with a full day on the Saturday and concludes Sunday afternoon. Participants are responsible for their own accommodations and meals. If you are into camping (recreational vehicles or tenting) this is an ideal location as there is ample available camping sites. There are also local hotels, motels and lodges. We can assist you with making a reservation. All the photo sites are easily accessed from the roadway and involve no more than an easy fifteen-minute walk. For more details contact us at email@example.com.
Mount Robson Provincial Park
This tour involves some intense hiking and three evenings of tenting. We leave on Friday morning and hike to the Whitehorn Campsite. Saturday, we hike to the Berg Lake Campsite and tent there Saturday and Sunday evening. We return to the trailhead on Monday. Because BC Parks only allows making reservations within a four-month window, it will be April or May before we have the exact dates. For more details contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
