    We offer different locations, and these locations all offer something different. We offer basic Rain Forest hikes for that are fit for all levels going through a beautiful old growth forest with up down terrain that will require proper hiking shoes, but overall simple paths. If you would prefer a hike through the forest and up a mountain to enjoy panoramic views we can arrange that as well at various locations. We will talk about local plants, trees, and wildlife. Hopefully get to see some along the way.

This was an amazing tour. I booked it for my birthday and I am a local. Darwin is a very knowledable guide. We were just outside the city and deep in pockets of old growth forest. He taught us all about the local wildlife and taught us how to identify trees. He also gave us tons of names of places to check out on our own. He is really nice and also taught us history about our area and even took us to Hatley Castle and gave us more history that was missed on the castle tour and talked to us about the xmen connection. (Hatley castle is where scenes of the mansion were filmed). This is a must do for locals and visitors.

Spent a wonderful afternoon with Darwin, hiking in the forests around Victoria. He was very pleasant and knowledgeable, and showed us a side of the island we would not have otherwise seen. Very different from our city living in Victoria. Highly recommend this tour

We spent a fantastic morning with Darwin. He picked us up promptly at our hotel and offered us several options based on our interests and ability. We chose two different beautiful locations to explore. Darwin was knowledge and interesting. It felt like we were hiking with an expert friend. He took care of all our needs and was quite generous with his time. We’d highly recommend his services.

After collecting us promptly, Darwin was very quick to get a sense of our interests and delivered a perfectly customised tour. Knowledgeable, passionate and friendly, Darwin is the ideal guide, and the scenery speaks for itself.

Thanks for a great experience!

We did you hikes which was a great way to see 2 different parks and gave us a bit of a breather in between. Darwin was very informative about the area. We would highly recommend.
