Wild Nature Tours are guided hikes and walk. Each week is a different theme, location and guide!
Explore the wonders of the Columbia Valley with Wild Nature Tours, guided outdoor excursions for all ages and abilities, hosted by Wildsight Invermere.
Wild Natures Tours run weekly from June 25 – August 27, and offer participants of all ages and abilities the chance to get active outside and appreciate our surroundings. Tours will range in difficulty from family friendly to more physically challenging, and focus on a variety of topics including nature interpretation, native and invasive plant species, and birding.
