Impressive hikes amongst the lakes, glaciers and peaks of British Columbia and Alberta
The beautiful Canadian Rockies represent a small but magnificent part of the vast chain that runs virtually the whole length of the North American continent.
Bursting with national parks and staggering scenery; emerald lakes, alpine forests, glaciers and snow-sprinkled mountains compete for our attention. We hike along an extensive network of trails in some of the best national parks, allowing quick, if sometimes strenuous, access into the impressive peaks.
As we trek, wildlife will likely appear in the form of eagles, deer, moose and bear, with the added bonus of a multitude of alpine flowers carpeting the view for miles around.
What makes this trip responsible?
When hiking we stick to marked trails to reduce our impact on the local environment and we camp in the designated grounds regulated by each National Park. At campgrounds (and throughout the trip) we employ a ‘leave no trace’ policy in regard to litter - everything taken into the park is taken out to preserve the local environment. We recycle wherever possible on the trip and all leaders are trained in responsible tourism to enable them to follow best practice and enforce our ‘leave no trace’ policy. Local shuttle services are used for transportation within the parks. The maximum group size on this trip is restricted to 12 in order to reduce the environmental impacts of visiting remote areas.
