Healthy Benefits of Multi-Day Hiking Trips to Back Country Lodges

There are many physical, mental and social benefits to hiking with a group at a remote back country lodge. It’s not just improved cardio-respiratory fitness, there is a lower risk of heart disease, stroke, high cholesterol and cancer. There is evidence of better quality of sleep and reduced depression! The camaraderie on the trail may even lead to some lasting friendships.

Join Andrea Petzold and her slide show presentation that will take you over some of the best hiking trails at her favourite back country lodges in the mountains of eastern British Columbia.
