My expectations were high and this holiday far exceeded them. It was the trip of a lifetime fo me and I loved every second of it.
- What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
There were so many inspirational moments I cant choose one. Every hike revealed the most stunning scenery I've ever seen and its impossible to choose a favourite hike or place.
- What did you think of your group leader?
We were lucky enough to get Renee and Catherine to guide our group. I cant speak highly enough of them. They are so professional and knowledgable, there was nothing they hadn't thought of and they made it an easy holiday.
The meals they produced were amazing, not what I expected in a campsite! They were delicious, imaginative and well presented as well as plentiful.
- Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
Pack for all conditions. We had snow and warm sunshine but mostly I needed my cold weather stuff. I'd taken a good 3/4 season sleeping bag, thermals and a down jacket and was glad I did.
The only thing I lacked were waterproof gloves, mine got soaked and my hands were cold a couple of times.
Dont take your best stuff! You'll be sat around a campfire each evening so you'll smell of smoke the whole time and might get 'sparked'.
Ladies I wouldn't bother with makeup or hairdryer either, we pretty soon stopped bothering with any of that... although Catherine did bring a hairdryer and we were all welcome to borrow it.
- Is there anything else you would like to add?
I just had the most fabulous time on this holiday, the group was great, the leaders were great and the Rockies?What can I say about them....more than stunning!
This is the only bit of Canada I've seen but its such an easy place to be. Everything is so well looked after and Canadian people are so polite.
I booked this holiday because it was graded challenging and bits of it were but in my opinion moderate would be a better description. Thats not a complaint though, I have no complaints about this trip. Knowing what I know now, I'd book it quick...whatever the grading.
Exodus deserves its great reputation.
