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 within Vancouver, West Vancouver, and North Vancouver area. 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.
