We politely request that all participants be vaccinated, or commit to wearing a mask when in close proximity to others during group talks and briefings while on tour. We are hosting groups up to 10 people which is less than capacity to ensure more space and comfort for all our guests. If you’d like to wear a mask, please feel comfortable doing so. If you are feeling unwell in the 24hrs leading up to the date, please do not attend. Refunds are not provided at this time unless we are able to re-book your space prior to the course!
Trekking With Toddlers - Hiking
Half Day Hike - Approx. 3 hrs
Join one of our experienced parents/wilderness guide for a trek with, you guessed it...toddlers!
Suitable for parents and their children ages 1-4 years old, we embark on a simple and yet rewarding 1.5 to 2 hr hike as well as trail snack to complete the experience. We offer Trekking with Toddlers hikes in various Manitoban parks and trails.
Tours are from 10:30am to 1:30pm to ensure families with older children can drop them off at school and have ample time to pick them up at the end of the day.
Each "Family" is defined as up to 2 parents/guardians (married or common-law) and their children up to age 4.
Each family is responsible for their children at all times and appropriate snacks, diaper changes, and medications while on tour. Our guides are experienced with their own children on trail and will provide support and ongoing learning throughout the experience.
Tour Fee is $50 +GST per family.
