NCT was a great backcountry trip and well planned by MB Guiding. I would highly recommend this trip for anyone who is looking for a personal challenge in their life. I still consider NCT a more intense physical experience then WCT and a lot more wild.

We had a wonderful experience hiking with Mike on the North Coast Trail. Mike’s preparation and planning is outstanding. The balance of walking time with time in camp, setting up and time for swimming at the beaches is perfect. Plus he knows where we should be for the low tide sections of beach hiking perfectly. The North Coast trail is a really fantastic hike. It has sections of beautiful old growth forest, upland bog boardwalk, sand and pebble beach’s as well as challenging mud, roots and logs to climb. We saw lots of wildlife: three bear sightings; wolf tracks on the beaches and whales every time we looked at the sea. We saw so many whales that while eating dinner someone would spot a whale and call out, some people would just keep eating. We highly recommend Mike Blake and MB Guiding for your next adventure!

To date, I have been on three trips with MB Guiding – one in the mountains of Strathcona Park and two on the west coast (Nootka, NCT). Even as a seasoned, experienced hiker, I have come away from each trip having learned something new that has made backpacking more effective or enjoyable. The planning, preparation resulted in enjoyable trips and I was grateful as a busy professional to have all the details taken care of. I was able to rise to the challenges each trip provided and savor the beauty of the environment. I look forward to joining future trips and enthusiastically recommend MB Guiding for anyone wanting a full hiking experience.
