hiking kids has been providing memorable hiking day camps for children since 2016. Children 6-13 years of age are invited to join our summer program of guided hiking day camps around Vancouver, with a focus on the unique trails of Seymour and Cypress Provincial Parks. 

Each destination is priced to give you excellent value for your money. Our goal is to make the kids' day hike an unforgettable experience. The hikes are guided by us personally. We take the participants to spectacular vistas over variable terrain (from light to slightly challenging) and you are free to participate in as many or as few hikes as you wish.
Bring your siblings and friends to qualify for a FREE hike!

Our promise to you is that you will hike an adventure filled with laughter, joy and great company! 

One of the best parts of any outdoor adventure is the people. We have met some of the nicest, most interesting children on our hikes and we invite you to join us. We are proud to say that many of our fellow little hikers return year after year.

The fact that we are a small, privately owned company allows us to pay particularly close attention to all the participating children and the details of our hikes. We treat you more as friends, rather than clients. Our desire is to offer your children the kind of hiking experience we would want for ourselves! 

We look forward to our first hike together!

Ino Banesiu

As head of hiking kids, Ino spends at least half the year hiking with all of you! But her role as your hike leader is only one part of her contact with guests. By the time she is out hiking with you, you will feel like you are on the trails with a familiar friend. That’s because she will have already taken your reservation, prepared the logistics for the day hike and even arranged your possible ride to the meeting point. You will also quickly discover that her passion for hiking is infectious, and she is also the go-to source for where to find the best picture and picnic spots on the hikes! She prepares for her many hiking trips throughout the year with yoga, kangoo jumps classes and numerous bike rides.

Being a mother to a wonderful boy, a school supervising volunteer and a certified first aid and CPR hiker, Ino is more than happy to welcome your kids and accommodate their requests during her well organized outdoor adventures.

Eric Banesiu

Eric is the greatest motivation for all the hikes we're organizing. As a keen wanderer exploring many corners of the world, Eric has many hiking stories in his repertoire. Some of his achievements so far include: Eagle Bluffs, St. Mark's Summit, Grouse Grind, Mount Seymour (all 3 peaks), Stawamus Chief, Sea to Summit, and many more in Europe.

His successful hiking birthday party a few years back inspired me and my son to organize these summer camps and give a chance to children to discover the beauty of nature through hiking.
