Winter Camping - Sandilands Provincial Forest (1 Night)
Our beginner winter camping expereince takes us in the The Sandilands Provincial Forest. These overnight trips expose guests to the way of traditional winter camping with a twist. We still use modern gear and equipment as well as a traditional canvass tent warmed up with a wood stove. We get participants involved with gathering and processing firewood, preparing meals, and general camp life. This is a fantastic opportunity to see if more extended winter travel and camping is for you!
Day #1: Arrival, meet your guides, and learn to appropriately load up our packs and sleds. We will trek approximately 1-2 hours to our remote backcountry campsite. We will set up camp and give time to take in and enjoy this silent and serene place. Your guides will facilitate camp set up and cook a great meal over the fire and we'll spend the rest of the day relaxing and watching the early winter sunset over the Whitemouth River
Last Day: Our last day begins with a hearty breakfast of campfire bannock and a traditional Voyageur breakfast. We'll pack up camp and head out onto the trail to hike our way to the trailhead. We enjoy one last trail meal together and say farewell to your guides as you prepare for your journey home.
We accommodate tours of 2 to 12 people. We provide all the camping equipment, food, permits, and experienced guides. Check out our PACKING LIST for what you need to bring and how to prepare for your Sandilands winter camping experience.
