Full description
Join a registered herbalist in Pemberton, British Columbia, on a three hour horseback tour of the Birkenhead Lake region. Ramble through forests, clearings and sub-alpine areas in search of plants that have been used throughout human history to treat disease and protect good health. Your guide holds a masters degree from the University of New England in botanical medicine and is able to share a vast amount of knowledge on the therapeutic uses of local indigenous plants. A saddlebag lunch is included along with apples that you can feed your horse. 

Learning about herbal medicine is fascinating in itself, but combine that with a horseback tour through the most beautiful back country imaginable and you have a truly incredible experience. You are cordially invited to come and meet some of these plants where they live.
