The bright-yellow raft slams head-on into the rapid, sending a torrential downpour over the drenched but laughing rafters as they climb the foaming waves. Such high-adrenaline moments are hardly a rarity on Canadian Outback Adventures & Events’ whitewater-rafting trips, a meticulously planned adventure that unfolds in the midst of British Columbia's most scenic locales. It all began in 1992, when the Corbett brothers James and Steve founded Canadian Outback Adventures & Events, and transitioned from multi-day, expedition-style soft adventures to one and two day adventures. Today, the company provides exciting team-building and employee training opportunities throughout North America, as well as awe-inspiring scenic rafting adventures throughout BC.

Canadian Outback Adventures & Events is built upon a foundation of social responsibility and the belief that learning, discovering, and laughing brings people together. Their Canadian Outback Cares initiative has contributed funds toward causes such as Muscular Dystrophy Canada, Junior Achievement of BC, and the Nature Trust of British Columbia.

Wooden beams form rows of V-shaped pillars that prop up the ceilings on both floors of Takaya Golf Centre's two-tiered driving range, creating a visually compelling, rustic design. Surrounded by a dense forest, the 270-yard range boasts 78 hitting stalls, 58 of which are covered to protect players from the elements and rival golfers who hire a stealthy buffalo stampede to record surveillance. Along with clearly marked yardage signs, the target field sports wide hoops at various distances to emulate greens. After the sun sets over the opposite end of the westward-facing range, Takaya Golf Centre activates its stadium-style lighting to keep practice sessions alive and illuminate woodland creatures' late-night board-game sessions.

Four teaching professionals preside over the centre's practice complex, where they help players smooth out swings in group or private lessons. Those looking for more leisurely activities can putt across the centre's mini-golf course, lounge with a cup of coffee in the TV lounge, or build an indoor fort with the pro shop's selection of hats, tees, towels, and golf balls.

Aerial Kiteboarding's certified instructors teach students how to properly ride kites and kiteboards across snow-blanketed prairies, glassy water surfaces, and expanses of dirt or grass. During snow-kiteboarding classes, instructors use two-line trainer kites to escort students through wind-safety strategies, basic steering and kite control, and snowman avoidance. Students prowl across the ground and through the air in power-kiting lessons and skim the waves in water-kiting lessons. Building on the lessons imparted during basic and intro classes, two- or three-hour lessons guide more experienced kiteboarders through steering, flight control, riding skills, and launching and landing methods. Aerial Kiteboarding supplies all rentals and equipment for its classes and lessons, which run seven days a week depending on weather and the amount of reindeer air traffic. Aside from their flagship kiteboarding packages, the outdoorsy company also features other services such as kayak rentals and scenic boat rides.

After mastering quintessential European spa services in the Netherlands and Germany, Anne-Marie Puppe packed up her skills and brought them to one of Vancouver's hottest vacation spots to open Bowen Beauty Spa. Upon entering the spa, guests may garb their bodies in clean robes and slippers before surrendering their stress at the hands of a massage therapist or enjoying one of many beautifying services, ranging from Dermalogica European facials to chocolate-infused back scrubs and hair-removal via wax or laser. Once fully scrubbed and relaxed, guests can top off their look at the in-house salon, where Anne-Marie's stylists coat nails in bold polish, straighten tresses, and perform couples counseling on the split ends of both men and women.

The guides at M4 Riversurfing set students loose on intense whitewater rapids and narrow canyon rivers armed with only a riverboard. After donning gear and going over safety at the launch site, the group trains for 30 minutes to get acquainted with paddling and manipulating the board—particularly necessary when matched up with a bucking board that hasn't been broken. Participants then ride deep into the forest along an adrenaline-inducing four-kilometre stretch that includes Class III and IV rapids which feature large waves and require sharp maneuvering. Throughout the experience, the guides keep a close eye on the proceedings, relying on their certifications in swift-water rescue to keep the experience safe.

The International Kiteboarding Association–certified instructors at Vancouver Kiteboarding School skip the stale classroom environment and instead lead courses taught entirely on the water, where kiteboarders can cut across waves and soar into the air. The teachers aim to introduce novices to the joys of the sport as well as help experienced boarders progress to advanced levels. Instructors never adhere to predetermined lesson plans, and instead change their curriculum as the water conditions change. This flexibility allows the skilled kiteboarders to teach their pupils how to navigate, catch air, and play fetch with a whale amid the ocean's ever-changing landscape.
