Lyndie Hill is the Owner/Operator of Hoodoo Adventure Company, an Adventure Tourism Company she built from the ground up. With passion and a strong work ethic, she introduced an Adventure Tourism Industry to the area where once only a solo rock climbing company existed. She offers adventures including guided hiking, biking, kayaking and rock climbing/rappelling tours and skills courses, adventure racing and unique youth and corporate events.
She developed her own sense of adventure early on in her own life. Although born and raised in Penticton, Lyndie set off on her own adventures as she lived, studied and worked in New Zealand and traveled around the world for 8 years. During these adventures, she discovered some of the most beautiful places with the nicest people on earth. She brought these learnings and her passion back to Penticton and set out to to build her dreams here. Lyndie is proud to call Penticton home again, “I came back home because nothing beats it!” explained Lyndie. “I moved back to Penticton so that I could be closer to my family and to hopefully have an impact in my community by bringing skills back home that I learned overseas. I’m thankful for how receptive Penticton has been to the business we have built here and I am excited about the future and the new adventures we have planned for the area.”
Lyndie has a passion for the outdoors and the environment that has been passed down to her through generations. She believes in the countless benefits of outdoor recreation and strives to share her passion with as many people as she possibly can. To help share this passion, she has introduced two new Adventure Races to the area including The Freak’n Farmer Adventure Obstacle Race and The Penticton Ramada Elevator Race. Both events showcase local partners and the area as an undiscovered adventure destination.
Her company provides employment for four staff members and contributes to the community in a number of unique ways. She created a race called the Santa Rec Run to raise money for youth outdoor recreation programming. All of the money made from the event goes directly to subsidize youth recreation programs. “We fundraise and do everything we possibly can to get youth out and experiencing the outdoors, keeping them active, creating memories and experiences they will remember for the rest of their lives”, said Lyndie.
Lyndie is not a stranger to winning awards! She has been nominated for and/or won a number of different awards in recent years, including “Best Home Based Business Award” in 2010 and “Best Hospitality and Tourism Business” in 2012, both awarded from the Pentiction & Wine Country Chamber of Commerce.
When asked what she’s most proud of, Lyndie explains, “I’m not afraid to try something new including building a family and a business at the same time.” As a mother of a toddler and another baby on the way, we have no doubt that Lyndie will excel in her goal of simultaneously building both her family and her business. We look forward to seeing her next adventure!
