Canada's Newest Tour Specialist Launches Mission-Driven Program

Edmonton, March 7, 2023 –karibu adventures, a new mission-driven adventure tour specialist is pleased to introduce three curated itineraries to unique destinations in Canada and Italy that are consciously designed for curious, active adventurers seeking raw and real experiences in amazing wild places.

karibu’s first signature tours celebrate some of the best nature, wildlife and Indigenous exploration that Canada has to offer, and take travelers on a personal journey to a hidden treasure in the Italian Alps, where our family has lived for 500 years. Our goal is to help travelers connect with the things that really matter, and seek the road less traveled.

“We are entering a new age of travel,” explains karibu founder, Andrea Mandel-Campbell. “People want to travel more than ever before, but they want to do it in a way that is more viscerally real and sparks that feeling of wonderment. They don’t want to follow the herd, and they want to feel good about how they travel. karibu was created to fill that need, share those special places in a mindful and inclusive way, and hopefully do some good for people and the planet.”

karibu has designed these three intimate small-group tour itineraries to showcase destinations that are near and dear to us:

  • Temagami, Ontario: a five-day fly-in canoe trip through one of Canada’s canoeing meccas, bookended by a stay at a classic backcountry lodge with hearty home-cooked meals and restorative saunas

  • Vancouver Island’s Northeast Coast: A magical seven-day tour combining sea kayaking and heart-stopping wildlife encounters, with special invitations to meet Indigenous carvers, storytellers and cultural leaders on their ancestral territory

  • Alta Valsesia, Italy: Seven days of spectacular hiking, food and culture in one of Italy’s true hidden gems and a UNESCO Geopark and World Heritage Site

Karibu’s Guiding Principals

How we Travel

karibu’s mission is to share some of the world’s unique wild places, and help keep them that way through responsible and inclusive travel. We care about the places we visit and the people we bring, so the number of trips to each destination is limited, and we only visit at the best times of year for a particular destination. karibu offers scheduled and private group tours of up to 12 people.


We don’t believe in conveyor-belt travel and we try hard not to be tourists. Every trip includes active adventure and nature, and wherever possible we partner with Indigenous and local communities. We also strive to make our trips affordable because we strongly believe that the more people who can experience the world’s beauty (nature and human), the better chance we have of saving it.
