It’s been wild to see the interest in outdoor activity grow these past few years.
From hiking clubs, snowmobile club, naturalists and so much in between there is something for everyone.
Most clubs are member clubs with the Prince George Backcountry Recreation Society. This society Established in 1998, and is a is a not-for-profit society with no paid staff and is run entirely by the efforts of volunteers. The PGBRS was incorporated to support local non-motorized recreation clubs, societies and groups in the central interior of British Columbia.
We are grateful for the work they do spanning from cabin management, planning & implementation of trail maintenance and all the fun paperwork in between! Appreciation is huge for all the people, clubs, time and effort that’s gone into creating the trails and protected land we all adventure upon & love.
The Prince George area has a backcountry lodge, guiding services & hiking clubs. If you’re reading this, then you know we offer everything from guiding, paddling courses, snowshoe trips & adventure club. We are stoked to share this space with so many other businesses & clubs…
You can also wander with the long standing Caledonia Ramblers, check out their schedule here. Or go for a bird watching adventure with the Prince George Naturalists Club. To take a look at the PGBRS Member clubs & links head to the PGBRS website and click the member clubs link.
Not only does Prince George have some awesome clubs, you can also find rock climbing & outdoor education through Overhang, go heli-skiing with Bear Paw Heli-Skiing, learn to conquer rapids with Backwater Paddling. Maybe book a private hut trip with Dezaiko Lodge, enlist your child in some canoeing or kayaking with the PG Canoe & Kayak Club
….if you are keen to get outside with like-minded people or learn some new skills, you are in luck!
We so strongly believe in the outdoor recreation world being like one giant community, supporting each other and anyone that wants to get outside, in a safe, respectful & inclusive way.
You can paddle mighty rivers and summit breathtaking mountain tops…Prince George really is a pretty amazing place to live & adventure!
