The Idea of hosting an expedition race in Canada was born when Lyndie Hill, the CEO of Hoodoo Adventures, an adventure tourism and event company established in 2007 in the Okanagan, British Columbia, was approached by a racer of one of their multi-sport events asking if the company would be interested in hosting such an event.  Lyndie's career began in Adventure Tourism and events in New Zealand, and she had always wanted to bring a race like this to her home town.  It was the perfect timing for the adventurous event company to seize the opportunity to work with an avid adventure racer and the Adventure Racing World Series to bring this amazing event to their community and Expedition Canada came to life in 2020.



Founded in 2007, our team at Hoodoo Adventures aims to provide quality outdoor adventures and team events that truly highlight the best the Okanagan has to offer. We have brought together some of the most energetic, personable, and dedicated individuals in the industry to assist you through your activities. All our staff have been selected for their passion, outstanding instructional skills, playful attitudes, and their knowledge of safety management with a wide range of backgrounds, experience, and qualifications. 




Lyndie Hill has a lifetime of experience in the outdoors; growing up in the Okanagan region, she has always had a passion for the area. Lyndie spent 14 years travelling, hiking, biking, kayaking, and climbing around the world and was directly involved in the outdoor industry in New Zealand for 8 years, gaining experience and multiple qualifications. Her desire to start a family and to have an impact on the community that she loves brought her home where she has used her international experience to offer Penticton and area residents and visitors the opportunity to enjoy an eco-friendly, outdoor adventure with local flare. Lyndie sees outdoor recreation and adventure tourism as the perfect platform to create a community culture from and she feels blessed to have such an amazing place to call home and to raise her 3 children with her husband Mike.



The Youth Outdoor Recreation Society (Y.O.R.S.) was created out of the fundraising efforts of Hoodoo Adventures & Lyndie Hill. In 2016 it was officially founded as a not-for-profit subsidy program. The Purpose Of The Society Is to subsidize & deliver affordable programs for mainstream and at-risk youth in the Okanagan to participate in outdoor recreation, education and leadership activities. By promoting community integration, relationship building, and life-skills development activities through outdoor recreation, Y.O.R.S. will provide the platform to help youth develop and nurture their physical, emotional and intellectual selves.  
This will enhance their relationship and confidence in the surrounding natural environment.
