Explore the ancient forests of the Callaghan Valley as you mush your own team of huskies, stopping at an abandoned camp on Totem Lake to learn about the old fur trappers.
Snowshoe tour on the Medicine Trail
This two-and-a-half to three-hour snowshoeing experience takes you deep into the ancient forest of the Callaghan Valley, following the path historically taken by trappers. Your guide shares their knowledge of the plants traditionally used for healing that grow along The Medicine Trail, and you’ll be able to sample some healing teas along the way. You'll snowshoe past giant cedar, fir and hemlock trees that form a high canopy above, before returning to the caboose (railroad cabin) at the end of the tour for a snack.
