5 hour Guided Trip
A real outdoor adventure in the forest along the Nith River, experience a wilder place. Here we teach wildlife exploration & survival skills. You experience how to navigate through the forest to not get lost, plus find and interpret animal tracks. Explore the semi-wilderness landscape, experience building a lean-to shelter in the forest plus learn to build a campfire like a pro.
You will work up an appetite on this adventure so we include a warm campfire lunch where we cook our famous Maple Chili over the open campfire that you helped build. This in an interactive experience and includes playing a game based on orienteering (finding your way) skills that your guide has taught you in the forest. Your guides will help you use GPS, smart phone, maps & other nature based skills your guides will teach you to find your way on this wilderness style adventure.
