Norm Hann Expeditions specializes in offering transformative, remote standup paddleboard and eco charter trips to the Great Bear Rainforest. As coastal expedition leader with 17 years of guiding experience he has introduced thousands of people from around the world to the Great Bear Rainforest. Norm is a passionate teacher and a Paddle Canada instructor trainer and defender of the Great Bear Rainforest. His adventures and conservation expeditions have been featured in SBC Surf, Explore, Sierra, Standup Paddle Magazine, SUP the Mag, and British Columbia Magazine.
Norm’s work in the Great Bear Rainforest as a guide, educator and coach led to a special relationship with the community of Hartley Bay. In 2006 he was adopted into the Gitga’at First Nation and given the name T’aam Laan which means “Steersman of the Canoe.”
Norm has stood up for the Great Bear Rainforest and fought to keep oil tankers off our coastline. It started with his Standup4Greatbear Expedition in 2010 and then most recently as part of the award winning Stand film project which highlighted his 350km sup expedition along the coast of Haida Gwaii.
Join us for one of our incredible trips to the Great Bear Rainforest to experience the amazing wildlife, rich First Nations culture and an opportunity to explore one of the most life changing environments in the world.
