About Toby Creek Adventures

Toby Creek Adventures (TCA) is a family owned business and working here feels like being part of a big family.  We like to have fun at work and it shows.  When you become our guest you become part of the fun and part of the family – be it for an hour, a day or a multi-day tour.

TCA began operations in 1996 running snowmobile trips on the snow-covered Greywolf golf course at Panorama Mountain Resort.  Within a few years we moved our base across the road to what was once the base area for the old Paradise Mine.  From that location we began running snowmobile and ATV tours up to the old mine area and Paradise Basin.

Our professional guides and support staff are local residents who have lived, played and worked in the area for many years.  Some are year-round employees while others own and operate summer construction, landscaping or tourism businesses and return each winter to run our busy snowmobile touring operation.

Toby Creek Adventures is a long-standing, award-winning Columbia Valley success story with operations based at Panorama, BC (near Invermere) and Banff & Canmore, Alberta.  The company is an industry leader and a member of various professional industry organisations.

We partner with many booking agents, hotels, motels and other tour operators in British Columbia and Alberta.  Each season we host staff from many of those businesses and take them out to experience our tour product so that they can provide first-hand information to their guests and customers.

The #1 reason for our success is that we are here for you.  We love what we do.  We live and work in a big mountain playground.  It’s why we are here, it’s why we do this, it’s why we live in such an amazing mountain community.  We love to share it with our guests – come and join us for a tour and you’ll see what we mean!

Toby Creek Adventures the BEST Snowmobile & ATV Tour Company in the Rockies.

Join us for a unique family adventure that will most certainly be a memorable highlight of your year. Leave the busy highways and bustling towns behind for a day and come explore Paradise at 8000’ in the Purcell Mountains of British Columbia.  This is the real thing – fresh mountain air, cool clear tumbling streams and waterfalls, breath-taking scenery, huge views of mountain peaks, carpets of alpine flowers and the opportunity to view wildlife in their natural environment.

The most common request we get at the end of the trip is; “That was amazing, can we go do it again?”
