Wilderness Leader


Onîkânohtêw  is a Cree word for ‘Leader’.
Part of this course is inspired by the Cree people.

You can use this course as a stepping stone to become a WGA International Wilderness Guide.
But, after you finished this course you can already start guiding in different areas of the world (including the Rocky Mountain National Parks).
