FML Adventures

FML Adventures is the first coast to coast tour company of its kind in Canada. We got started after noticing a huge need for accessible options for traveling across Canada. So many similar tour offerings exist in places like Australia, New Zealand, South-East Asia, and Europe - so why not Canada?


On our tours you can expect an exciting, action-packed, yet stress-free itinerary that ensures you hit every highlight (and many hidden gems) across the country. We understand what you want. We’re founded by backpackers for backpackers, and we want to offer you a carefree way to experience the country we love. We believe in small group travel (max. 10 travellers) to allow for maximum adventure, and to encourage that backpacker connection that only travel can provide!

The man, the myth, the legend - Connor Wood. Woody joins the FML Adventures dream team with an extensive background leading canoe and hiking trips throughout Canada's wilderness. Connor will be accompanying the FML squad for our 2021 May & June trips as tour-guide & driver.

After earning a degree in the world of business from Wilfrid Laurier University, he took time off to explore the Forests, Mountains, and Lakes of New Zealand’s beautiful landscape. It was on this trip he developed his appreciation for the diversity of culture, landscapes, and ideas that would set him on his path of joining the FML team.


With a spirit that can’t be tamed, this big dog can’t wait to get on the road and show you the best that Canada has to offer.


Tripper Mitch is part lumberjack and part journalist. Mitch will be joining the FML squad for our 2021 July & August trips as tour-guide & driver.


After receiving an English degree from Wilfrid Laurier University, he earned a Master’s of Journalism from Ryerson University, and has written for national publications such as The Globe and Mail and The Walrus. He also runs a canoe trip guide and outfitting company called Second Point Trips, which leads families on four day camping excursions into Ontario’s Algonquin Park.


His recent travels include backpacking through South East Asia, Central America, and Europe. A few years ago, he was almost thrown in a South American jail for trespassing on the Chilean side of Patagonia with photoshopped camping permits. (Perfect story for a campfire)


He loves few things more than drinking with strangers, long hikes, and camp fires. He can’t wait to explore the Great White North with you.


Lisa is our Canadian, travel-loving founder, and will be a tour-guide & driver for all FML trips. Her formal education is in Business Administration with specializations in Marketing and Economics, but she found her true passion in backpacking and experiencing the world.


Her travel bug started with a three-month trip to South East Asia and New Zealand but grew substantially after spending a year working in Australia. It was here that she was introduced to the travel industry, working in multiple hostels up the Australian East Coast, and eventually becoming a brand ambassador for hostels all across Australia.


It was during her Australian travels that she recognized the huge need for Canadian travel offerings that were tailored toward the millennial backpacker. She made a commitment to start Canada’s first cross-Canada travel company while out in Australia, and the rest is history!
