Chilcotin Holidays is a wilderness tourism business located in the South Chilcotin Mountains in British Columbia, Canada. Our mission is to use our remote wilderness setting as a vehicle for a holiday, wilderness stewardship and self-development. We achieve this by focusing on methods that will inspire individuals to improve performance, accept personal responsibility, and work toward the overall purpose of their work and life.
There are three critical points that shape our philosophy:
Using wilderness holidays as an incentive for creating deeper connections with self and nature.
Developing a work environment that promotes strong employee-driven ideals; to improve their performance and work to achieve their goals.
Building a community of people dedicated to changing lives through wilderness experiences.
Our goal is to bring these three themes together to facilitate endless opportunities for personal growth and self-development. We achieve this through the collaborate effort of our team, who are able to embody our philosophy and culture and want to use our unique wilderness environment as an incentive to create lasting changes in the lives of themselves and the lives of others. We work with individuals who are committed to helping people process and learn from their incredible experiences; focusing on methods that will inspire people to improve performance, take responsibility, and work toward creating value in their work and lives
