Our Story

Dunne Za Backcountry adventures was started in 2014 to share the beauty and culture of our people with the world and create meaningful jobs for our youth. 

Hunting, guiding and trapping has been a way of life of the Dunne Za people since the beginning of time. For generations the Metecheah and Field families have been involved in working for others in the guiding industry. In order to be able to ground our community in our land, and show others the beauty and history that surrounds us in our territory, both William and Jeff have worked hard to create a business that the whole community can be proud of. 

To develop his skills to take care of clients, Jeff has taken courses at the College of New Caledonia in Prince George to have a better understanding of how to become a professional in the industry and offer safe memorable experiences.  William has a long history of building lasting relationships. He looks forward to fostering those relationships and building new ones with tourists, industry leaders and educational instructors every year as they tour the land and enjoy adventures through Dunne Za backcountry.

We hope that you will join us so we can share our culture and the beauty of our land with you in a memorable experience.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS ARE SAYING

"Having not been on a horse for 35 years I was worried that I would be unfit for this ride. Not only were the horses gentle, they were so well trained! The tour was excellent with some great educational background about the Dunne Za people and the history of the area. Jeff and William were the most friendliest guides ever and made the tour incredibly memorable! I recommend it to anyone who wants to learn more about the First Nations people and their land. "
