“I find comfort in knowing that the wilderness is not going anywhere, and I will be back. The vast expansion and breath of being in the middle of the lake’s belly and the quiet, calm energy in the bush made me feel like the world really was at my finger tips. I wanted to thank you and Kie and Lure of the North for providing me with this beautiful experience.” – Vanessa, Ishpatina Ridge expedition, 2012

“Thank you so much for this weekend! Everyone had a great time, and those of us that work in the office brought our mocs in for our admin and support staff to see. Lots of ohh-ing and aww-ing. Everyone is on a bit of a high this morning with feelings of accomplishment. We were very thankful to learn so much from the two of you.

There has already been murmuring of another session.” ~ Kristy Pulver, Program Manager, Kinark Outdoor Centre
