A Walking Women “Taste of Tumbler” Tour

Description

Women’s Hiking Tour!

We are hosting a group called “Walking Women” in August and we would like you to join us. The Walking Women are travelling all the way from the UK to visit Canada!

Walking Women are trips FOR women, BY women. Created in the United Kingdom, Ginny and sister Sarah have an avid following of women who join together to experience the world through walking holidays. This summer, Walking Women are coming to Canada and we have the opportunity to share some of the fun with our local friends.

Get a “Taste of Tumbler” by seeing some of the most beautiful spots in the area. Each day we will be visiting a new part of Tumbler Ridge and beyond. You can sign up for one day or multiple days! You can also add on a stay at our beautiful vacation home, The Hideaway.

Take a look at the itinerary below.

A relaxing day with two stops. Easy hiking. The marshes host a myriad of birds and this type of ecosystem is home to our Canadian moose.
