THIS COURSE IS SUBJECT TO A $100 APPLICATION FEE.
Outward Bound Canada adult courses are ideal for anyone seeking new challenges and unforgettable adventures in the great Canadian wilderness. Little to no experience is needed in order for you to succeed in your outdoor journey; in fact, the more you’re stepping out of your comfort to join us, the greater the potential that your experience will not only be rewarding, but incredibly empowering. The trek is also ideal if you are seeking greater clarity in life – perhaps in times of challenge and transition – and can provide an authentic space to reflect, be present, and walk you own path more deeply.
Your Appalachian Trail Trek will begin when you meet your group at your rustic wilderness cabin accommodations, nestled in the heart of Mount Carleton Provincial Park. From here, several picturesque mountain hikes will form the key activities of your first three days. Your adventure will have a gradual progression towards more wilderness based skills and experiences, as you learn hiking and backpacking skills from Outward Bound experts, who will guide you through your mental and physical journey. Your experience will culminate in a backpacking hike to the headwaters of the Nepisiguit River. On the peninsula of Lake Nictau, you will have the opportunity to do a solo phase with a meaningful process of reflection activities and self-reliance challenges. Together, you, your group and your instructors will spend eight unforgettable days filled with lookouts, lakes, mountain summits and ridge hikes, and some hearty meals back at base camp… and you’ll do it all as you marvel in the magic of the Maritimes in the fall!
