These local companies and trails are open through January. Office hours are often reduced in the winter, so we recommend calling ahead. Programming can vary, based on weather & trail conditions – but bundle up to make the most of your time outside!

Outfitters usually require a minimum of two or four passengers to book a tour. For one-person bookings, tour operators will do their best to combine guests on one tour with advanced notice. Private tours are welcome.

For activity suggestions & updates, call your tour provider directly, or contact our Cox Bay Visitor Centre, from 10:00am-5:00pm daily: 250.725.3414 x 0 for Visitor Services or e-mail
