Publisher's Corner with Joe Kowalski
DOUBLY SWEET

On behalf of the Wilderness Tours staff, many who live in Whitewater Region, I am honoured that Wilderness Tours is a finalist in the 2016 Canadian Tourism Awards as the top adventure company in Canada. It's doubly sweet that the Award Sponsor is Brewster Travel, Banff's largest tourism company. We are proud of our staff, present and past. The President of Brewster Travel is WT alumni Dave McKenna. In tourism, it doesn't get any better.
