Hiking Tours in the Pacific Northwest Rain Forest
Discover the Sunshine Coast on Foot!
Wild orchids! Medicinal plants! Edible berries! Unless you are out with a guide, you may never know what you are walking past on our trails! Surrounding the Lund and Powell River area, there’s a fantastic network of volunteer built trails, some of which follow old logging roads and railway beds from 100 plus years ago. From ocean side rocky bluffs through lush evergreen forests to scenic mountain vistas at elevations of 1200 plus metres, there is a huge variety in what our trails have to offer.
One notable trail is the 180 km long Sunshine Coast Trail, Canada’s longest hut to hut hiking trail. At Terracentric we offer logistical support, guiding services, information including the guide book and maps as well as water taxi to the trails northern starting point at Sarah Point. This trail has several access points, so you can choose small sections to do (1 – 3 nights out), day trips, or if you wish, do the whole thing, with resupply points en route.
Terracentric looks forward to sharing with you some of our favourite hikes, each one offering something a little different! Leave all the details to us, as we provide return transportation for small groups, delicious picnic lunches or snacks made from fresh ingredients and fascinating stories of local natural and human history.
Tell us your interests, we pick a route and join us for an entertaining, informative day in the woods!
