About Us

At Adaptive Travel Adventures, we enable outdoor wilderness experiences for people that require additional support, typically because of physical or mental limitations,  through a combination  of the right people, experience, and adaptive equipment.

We will make any destination available for anyone to experience no matter their abilities.

Spend some time hiking, kayaking, cycling, cross-country skiing, or snowshoeing in the Okanagan region of British Columbia. Adaptive Adventures offers time based trips that enable all people regardless of ability to participate in outdoor activities. This program is funded by various sources with all contributions staying within our local communities. This program is a great way to start off your pursuit for adaptive recreation!

CRIS is a pioneer in adaptive recreation and offers programs tailored to the needs of participants – from the beginner explorer to the seasoned wilderness enthusiast, CRIS has an opportunity for you!

Our Mission

CRIS Adaptive Adventures consists of a group of outdoor enthusiasts with 17 years experience making outdoor dreams reality.

Since the beginning of CRIS Adaptive Adventures, a non-profit society, it has been our mission to provide relief to children and adults with physical and mental disabilities by developing and implementing outdoor recreation programs that promote independence, assist with integration, reduce isolation and improve the mental well-being of these individuals.

Our purpose is to promote inclusion within society as well as improve overall well-being and quality of life for any person with a special need or compromising disability.

Where To?

Our Adaptive Adventure trips primarily take place in the beautiful Okanagan Valley.

Our backyard has a lot to offer. That said, if your dreams are bigger, do talk to us. Through our Adaptive Travel Adventures program we will partner with other organizations, where need be, or work with you to build your dream trip.

We live in a 4 seasons playground, where the season at hand plays a big part in where we go, what travel and how that can be accomplished. Generally most people prefer the warmer seasons for most of their adventures, but let us know what’s in your bucket list!

The Team

The core team consists of people from a varied background – Recreational Therapist, Firefighter, Nurse, Technical geek all with a passion for the outdoors.

We recruit our trip team members from an equally diverse group paying close attention to the gifts they bring to a team in outdoor skills, Training, Certifications, and personalities.
