About Your Guide
Adventure Guide & Instructor, Aaron Miller , grew up in Northern Ontario having acres of forest in his back yard, where in the summer he would ride his mountain bike and in the winter x-country ski. In his early teens he moved to Southern Ontario where he adapted to a more urban environment by taking up rollerblading in the parks and BMX biking in the streets. In 2005 Aaron joined the Canadian Forces where he served for 11 years. During his military career he began new hobbies leading him away from the urban life and back towards the nature he enjoyed as a child. Aaron started rock climbing, kayaking, and snowboarding and a desire for a larger landscape grew. He could feel the draw of the West Coast. The military taught Aaron leadership skills and provided a higher appreciation for the freedom of the outdoors. It was at this time that Aaron started thinking about becoming an adventure guide. In 2012 Aaron moved to Victoria BC where he joined a number of active groups and his passion for teaching his hobbies was refined. Quickly Aaron began acquiring certifications as an instructor and adventure guide. Over the years, through his outgoing nature, Aaron has been an influencer amongst his family and peers while leading in adventure sports. Now days Aaron holds certifications as a Level 2 Snowboard Instructor, Level 1 Ski Instructor, Level 2 Kayak Instructor, Level 1 Sea Kayak Guide, Level 3 Rock Guide, Climbing Gym Instructor, and Outdoor Emergency Care Technician and Instructor. Aaron has been on the Volunteer Snow Patrol, works for the Snow School at Mount Washington, has taught for Section 8 Snow Sports Institute, has been an adventure guide for Mountain Skills Academy and Adventures in Whistler, and has been the chief instructor for the Pacific Fleet Kayak Club. Aaron’s favourite achievements involve hiking the top two most dangerous hikes in the world, descending by mountain bike from the second tallest peak in Spain, and kayaking amongst giant icebergs in both Newfoundland and Alaska.
