Guide Biography:


Cara McGlashan


Cara grew up in the south east of England. Summers were spent roaming around the Kent countryside or exploring other parts of the UK on family camping vacations. She has spent the last ten years working and travelling all over the world from being a dive master in Thailand to teaching skiing in the Indian Himalayas. Her passion for travel led her into the adventure travel business. She is pleased to have called Canada home for the last two and a half years. It has everything she could ever ask for all of her outdoor based activities. And some amazing views to boot. When she is not ascending mountains either on skis, a mountain bike or by foot she loves to cook; taking inspiration from the many countries she has visited.
