Hike a forested river to four sublime sanctuaries then taste at the most welcoming winery in Niagara.

No doubt this is the most picturesque local trail while the small-production winery we visit is one of the friendliest.

River & Wine is gentle like a stream, but intense like an Ice Wine - and just as intoxicating.

- Senses of humor and adventure encouraged

- Full refund for intolerable weather

Fortunate to work In Yosemite National Park and Oregon I've guided groups to some of the most transcendent trees, peaks, rivers, hot springs and waterfalls.

On the wine side I have a strong bond with this winery which adds joy to your experience (and wine to your glass).

Eternally Canadian I’m forever on the hunt for little known nature spots and light-hearted wineries and savor deeply the respite taken from these tonics.

This was such an incredible experience! We’ll definitely be back :D Ken was amazing and had all these hidden gems that we would’ve never experienced had we done the hike alone. The wine tasting was also a very personalized experience - 5 stars aren’t enough for this!

An absolute amazing experience! Could not recommend enough. Beautiful spots- unknown to many. Ken is so much fun and a wonderful host. We will be telling all our friends to visit Canada just for this experience!

A truly memorable hike where we experienced Mother Nature at her absolute best! Ken took us on a gorgeous hike that was well-paced with breaks to take in beautiful views and enjoy sips of wine as well as learn about the local landscape and area. He was an extremely friendly, knowledgeable and attentive guide who always had our comfort and experience top of mind. We were lucky enough to enjoy the more adventurous side of the trail which concluded with an exceptional surprise (you’ll want to be surprised so I won’t ruin it). Afterwards, Ken took us to a lovely family-owned winery for a tasting. It ended up being our favourite of all the wineries we visited in Niagara-on-the-Lake during our anniversary weekend. To enjoy an exceptional experience like this with an exceptional guide at an affordable price is super rare—don’t hesitate to book! Ken also sent us his list of local recommendations which were awesome. After we left Ken, we rented bikes to continue touring wineries and per his recommendation, found a hidden beach. Do yourself a favour and don’t miss out on this unique tour!

When I booked this experience I was in that adventure mindset. When it came to the day of, and we thought it was going to thunderstorm and rain during the experience I was more interested in just sitting back and trying new wines instead of hiking. Ken was very gracious in giving us options if we didn’t even do the experience. I’ll admit we weren’t dressed properly for hiking but I didn’t care once we got into it because it was just simply a fantastic day with fun challenges, and magnificent scenery. It didn’t end up raining until well after we were settled in winetasting. With Ken’s personality and attitude it made me want to climb hills wade through the water and experience nature! My Honey and I had such a great time and so many memorable pictures to show our family and friends. Thank you Ken for everything! Including the Wine glasses that weren’t plastic! Lol. It’s touches like that, that make it even better. Namaste Ken! People should not miss out on a day with you! P.S. Ken recommended the perfect restaurant to have our dinner that evening also. Not going to tell you the name of the restaurant or the very lovely Winery we attended. You’ll have to book an experience with Ken to find out! 😉

I did this tour twice and would do it again! It’s fun, refreshing, and so worth it in the end. You will not be disappointed. Thanks Ken!

Ken was very friendly and relaxed and reminded us frequently to observe and listen to the nature surrounding us. He had a nice bottle of wine and served us 2 glasses along the hike. We stopped at a small winemaker after crossing a field and sampled wines. Ken was a real human being and a joy to chat with along the way. Thank you from both of us. A well worth experience.
