Canada Winter Life

On the Canada Winter Life cultural course we will delve into life in the Canadian mountains. Life in the mountains means being exposed to nature, which offers many challenges and opportunities for adventure. During the trip, we will experience this first-hand, meeting locals through homestays and school visits, among other activities.

The course includes 5 days of skiing in the famous Whistler Blackcomb, visiting hot springs, tasting maple syrup, learning about snow slides from rescue workers and about sustainable winter outdoor living.

The trip is mainly designed and planned by the students with us teachers as guides.
