The Story

About Us

Hello, I’m Adrian, the Founder of Breakaway Adventures.

Breakaway Adventures was founded out of my passion for the outdoors. Born and raised in Vancouver, I have always been awestruck by my beautiful surroundings. I have explored this province extensively on bike, foot, and skis. Without a doubt the best way to enjoy our precious neck of the woods is being active within its natural beauty!

After spending the better part of the past 25 years behind a desk, with one eye on the clock and anxiously awaiting to get out into nature, I decided to pursue my passion. This company was born as an opportunity to share beautiful and exciting adventures with others!

Breakaway Adventures is a different kind of tour company. I believe outdoor adventures are enhanced by intimate, private or small group situations. My approach is to personalize your tour, allowing you the opportunity to connect with nature, and on your own terms.

Whether you’re looking for a good cardio workout or prefer focusing on the scenery, Breakaway Adventures has a variety of tours that are perfect for each and every person, regardless of fitness level or age.

Biking tours can be self-powered or use electronic bikes and hiking tours range from flat, easy 2-hour hikes to all day difficult and challenging hikes, or something in between. The benefit of private and small group outings is Breakaway Adventures truly personalizes the experience to fit your wants and needs.

Our tours originate in Vancouver, British Columbia. We include pickup and drop off at your doorstep the Metro Vancouver. Our mission is to make your experience relaxed, seamless, and fun!

I am very excited to spend time with you and help create lifelong memories in this beautiful part of the world.

Testimonials

  • Kimberly W

    Fantastic e-bike tour of Vancouver! I had the absolute- best time sightseeing and riding along the waters edge with Adrian! He’s an excellent tour guide! It was the perfect way to learn about Vancouver and see the sights. I got to see so many areas I would have never seen on a tour bus or on my own. I was always safe and it was so easy to ride with the assisted acceleration on the e-bike. I was shocked when Adrian told me we rode 32 kilometers! It was so easy. I look forward to calling him again to show me other parts of this beautiful area. I loved my day with Adrian and highly recommend Breakaway Adventures. It is a great
    company and I feel confident to say your in great hands for any tours they offer.

    This was a 10/10! Adrian was such a great guide, we really wanted something more challenging, and definitely got it. The views were amazing. Adrian also had great food for lunch at the top. Definitely keep this on your to-do list for visiting Vancouver—especially if you want to see all of it.

    First snowshoe experience and it was amazing! The views were incredible and the Whiskey Jacks at the peak were very social. Adrian was such a great host, super friendly and experienced. Highly recommend!

  • Christy B

    The hike was amazing, and not something I’d have picked on my own. Adrian was great, and I am glad I went.

  • Louisa C

    WOW, Adrian is an exceptional dedicated tour guide, nothing was a problem for him, so accommodating. This tour is totally safe for beginners to E Bikes. Seeing Vancouver through the eyes of a local & parts of Vancouver that aren’t in brochures is priceless. Being picked up from the hotel is a definite plus. Adrian just loves what he does and that shows through during this wonderful experience. The locations were so amazing, so much so, we are planning on going back during in the next few days. Thank you Adrian.

  • Happy Customer

    My wife and I spent a gorgeous sunny early February afternoon snowshoeing with Adrian and two other guests on the wilderness trails above the Sea to Sky gondola near Squamish. Adrian is an excellent guide. He is personable, knowledgeable and experienced in leading small groups in the backcountry and
    clearly loves to share his enthusiasm for outdoor adventures with others. He assessed each of us on a short easy hike before choosing a trail that matched our fitness and abilities. He knew just how far he could push each member of our group without compromising their confidence or safety. I highly recommend
    taking Adrian’s half-day wilderness snowshoeing trip. It will be an adventure you will treasure for a lifetime.
