Welcome to A Wilder Experience

At A Wilder Experience (AWE) we offer guests unique adventure tourism-based excursions throughout Newfoundland and Labrador and the Canadian Arctic. We are passionate about pushing our comfort zone and exploring the vast natural beauty of this country. AWE specializes in individual, group and family excursions in a variety of disciplines from sea kayaking and packrafting to backcountry skiing. We are an inclusive organization and offer excursions for all adventurers, from novice to advanced. We also offer outdoor experiential education programs and corporate team building events. Let us help you plan your adventure.

Experiences

“You were such a terrific guide and asset for our Arctic trip. Thank you for all you did to make our trip so special.”

Stephana. B

Our Core Values

“Was an amazing week – due to both the Baffin area and to the great staff team and leadership – thanks very much! I hope your following weeks went as well as our week did.”

Bill and Bobbi P.

It is an understatement to say this year has presented unprecedented challenges for many. Although the events this year have had a strong impact on the local tourism industry, we have made the best we could of the season. Unfortunately, we have made the tough call to suspend our sea kayaking operations for the remainder of the season. We have had the pleasure of seeing many happy faces on the water, and exploring this incredible place we call home. We are sad to cut the season short, but hope that our valued customers can understand we are making this call with heavy hearts. We hope to see you out on the water next year, and believe it’ll be our best season yet! Thank you for your continued support. ...

A beautiful shot from a very nature packed tour! Thanks @lesliewalsh333 for the capture 🌊 ...

You might recognize this lovely face from one of your tours. This is Erica! She is headed on a grand adventure, and to say we will miss her dearly is an understatement. Help us wish her a safe journey across the country ☀️.

Tale of a lost GoPro.

We lost our GoPro on a team paddle, and thought it was gone forever. A few days later, a local fisherman who was out on his boat somehow saw it and scooped it up off the ocean floor. He very kindly tracked us down to return it! This is how happy we were to be reunited.

We love this community! Kindness is contagious, pay it forward 🙌🏻

The summer solstice a few weeks ago marked the longest night of the year, and with that, we are kicking high gear into summer!

Although the days are technically getting shorter now, there is lots of time to enjoy these stunning sunsets over the harbour. Here’s to long summer nights and views like these.

*two spots left for this Friday night’s sunset tour!

The Irish Loop is 312km of beautiful scenery along the tip of the Avalon Peninsula. There's bound to be a place or two you'd like to stop and take in the scenery.⁠

This is the little dude behind the inspiration for A Wilder Experience.⁠ Isn't he sweet?⁠

Father's Day is a day to celebrate the ones we love, the ones we've lost, and to send love to the ones who might have a difficult time on this day. We hope you have beautiful day with your family, however you choose to celebrate! <3⁠
