Amanda Cora is the co-owner and manager of Thrive Tours and enjoys being one with nature and is known to hug a tree or two while out adventuring. Whether exploring the great outdoors kayaking, canoeing or hiking and taking in the sights, being in nature is one of Amanda’s most favourite things to do.
