Briagh & Bretton

Since our return from Chile to the Kawarthas in 2012 we have cofounded The Land Canadian Adventures, won the Bears' Lair Entrepreneurial competition, been married and had our first child- the incomparably adorable Lily Maeve. We do love an adventure! Our small business specializes in all-inclusive, four-seasons, day excursions, overnight trips and outdoor team building in the Kawarthas' most beautiful locations. Canoeing when the water is open and trekking by snow shoe during the winter months. Working with international students teaching English as a Second language both abroad and in Canada has allowed us to learn so much about the cultures, languages and philosophies from all over our planet, and Bretton continues to learn and work as a teacher in Trent University's International Program. We are committed to sharing what we love most about living in Peterborough & the Kawarthas as a young family with people from around the world or around the corner.
