Overview

Book
Forming a natural boundary between the states of Alberta and British Columbia and rising to over 3500 metres, the snow-capped Canadian Rockies include some of the world's finest mountain scenery; to make the most of this dramatic region, we have devised a walking and trekking holiday that keeps to the high ground as much as possible. Traversing forested valleys to flower-filled alpine meadows and pretty glacial lakes, each of our day-walks will take us to a high ridge, pass or summit at the heart of the mountains. Seeking out the best walks and scrambles, our travels will take us to Lake Louise, Revelstoke, Glacier National Park, Golden, Yoho and Banff. En route, we will trek to the summit of several big and impressive mountains, including Mount Fairview (2744m), Cirque Peak (2993m), Mount Bourgeau (2931m) and Mount Allan (2820m). We have also included a mini-trek along the Iceline Trail, overnighting in the beautiful and remote Stanley Mitchell Hut. This action-packed walking holiday offers the very best of the Canadian Rockies.

    • Climb Cirque Peak and Mount Bourgeau, and along striking ridges

Overall I really enjoyed the 2 weeks. The hikes were set at the right level and the itinerary was comprehensive. Our guide Kathrin was organised, efficient and took good care of us. She was also an excellent cook.

I was very impressed by the two leaders. They both worked extremely hard to ensure that our holiday went well. I thought the walking was spectacular - the views, the wildlife and the flora which we saw was truly lovely. I'll never forget the colour of the glacial lakes - ranging from sapphire thru' to emerald green. Please pass my thanks to Guillaume and Katrin for their patience, care and enthusiasm - they were a pleasure to travel with.

This is a really great trip, our first time to Canada and whilst the mountains were as beautiful as we expected, the weather was much hotter than anticipated. Whilst the mileages don't look too long on paper, there was a lot of ascent most days, and of course a corresponding amount of descent, which was often on loose gravel or scree, so was quite hard on the knees. Walking poles were therefore a great help. There were a few opportunities to swim; the hotel in Calgary has a pool, plus we had a swim in a lake one day and a visit to Banff hot springs, so pack a swimming costume too. We hadn't realised that this was a trip advertised in other countries by your partner agencies, so we found ourselves in a group of 12; 5 were from the UK, 5 from Germany and 2 from Austria. Our guides were French and German, though both now living in Canada, so it was a very multi-national experience. Thankfully, all spoke English pretty well, so all communications were in English. We thoroughly recommend this trip, as you get to see quite a lot of the Rockies in a relatively short time, sampling some of the best walks in the area.
