Join us on a Day Journey in Vancouver or a Multi Day Journey on Vancouver Island and the BC Coastline. 

Wild Root Journeys offers day and multi-day sea kayak and hiking trips, lessons, and nature retreats along British Columbia's coastline.

We value the richness of traveling through our environment, self propelled. Here we are reminded, once again, to move with our environment. As we spend more time in nature we find ourselves adjusting to wake with the sunlight, to move with the tides and to listen to the skies. Animals show themselves like gifts, only for our eyes to see, and the little moments, like stillness, give us a breath from which we recharge.

Wild Root Journeys offers guides with experience and heart. We are certified through the Sea Kayak Guide Alliance of BC, with ongoing first aid and skills training.

Our goal is to open doors into nature for those seeking out adventure, time to recharge and growth. We pride ourselves in running several LGBTQ2S specific trips with diverse guides. We are always happy to answer questions as they help you in your journey.

Silke Hockemeyer

SKGABC Level 3 Lead Guide

My greatest lessons have come from being immersed in nature and seeking out the symbolism that is all around us. In nature’s wild beauty, everything slows down, and if we allow for it, we can begin to find our pace amongst it. Here, we can begin to truly replenish ourselves.
