Canadian Rockies Hikes - guided and self-guided

Canadian Rockies

Canadian Rockies Hiking

Once again, Canada tops the list of best places on earth to live and play. Well, if you can’t live in Canada, why not play? The Canadian Rockies are some of the most pristine mountains anywhere in the world and form the border between British Columbia  and Alberta, Canada.  With Calgary International Airport a mere 1.5 hours from the town of Banff, Alberta, a weekend excursion or a 10-day trip is easily accessible due to excellent infrastructure, world-class accommodation and certified adventure professionals.

Our multi-day hiking journeys allow  the intrepid traveller to discover the beauty of  towns such as Canmore, Banff, Lake Louise and Golden, B.C. Travelling through the Banff National park which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site,  Yoho, Kootenay and Kananaskis, will allow adventure seekers to observe wildlife such as wolf, grizzly bear, moose and many ungulates with specialist guides who are both knowledgeable and friendly. Highlights include Moraine Lake and Larch Valley, the Iceline Trail, Kananaskis Country and new to our scheduled departures, Icefall Lodge, near Golden, British Columbia.

 

Banff/Canmore

Known the world over for stunning mountain vistas, great food and amazing skiing, Banff townsite and the Banff National Park are one of Canada’s premier tourist destinations. Banff National Park is Canada’s first and third oldest national park in the world, and the townsite, unlike many others, did not develop out of mining interest, rather, was conceived as a tourist destination from its inception.

In 1883, thanks to a group of Canadian Pacific Rail workers, hot springs were ‘discovered’ and the race to establish a tourist destination was on. Soon thereafter, hotels and eventually the townsite and National Park were established and forever put Banff and Lake Louise on the map. Banff and Lake Louise have so much to offer, with incredible skiing at Lake Louise, Sunshine Village and Norquay during the winter months that a week in the area would not suffice to cover all there is to see. Winter allows for epic cross-country skiing in the Bow Valley, from the Nordic Centre Provincial Park where some events from the 1988 Calgary Olympics were held to Moraine Lake and Mount Shark Nordic Area in K-Country.

Banff and Canmore are also home to many of Canada’s mountain and hiking guides, where ice-climbing, rock-climbing and mountaineering have become a major attraction for adventure-seekers from around the world. A series of newly established Via Ferrata tours have been installed in the Banff National Park increasing the activities for summer visitors who still have the stamina after epic days in the hills.

Arts and Culture are also omnipresent in the Bow Valley with incredible institutions such as the Banff Centre for the Arts and Creativity which hosts the immensely popular Mountain and Book Festival, bringing together some of the best mountain film makers and adventure seekers each year in November. The Book Festival is also a huge draw, with authors from around the world sharing their tall yarns of adventures to far flung corners of the world.

Banff and Lake Louise are also home to some incredible hotels such as the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel and the Chateau Lake Louise, the Post Hotel and Emerald Lake Lodge. When it comes to dining, our guides will show you some of the area’s best eateries whether you are looking for gourmet dining such as the Three Ravens at the Banff Centre or more casual fair at  The Georgetown in of Canmore. With a  legislative change in who can brew what and where, Canmore and Banff seem to be sprouting micro brew pubs and distilleries like mushrooms. The newly established Canmore Brewing Company has put Canmore on the map for great craft beers at a reasonable price and the Wild Life Distillery has made drinking small batch Vodka hugely popular.

Kananakis Country

Less well know than Banff National Park, K-Country as locals call it, is a provincial designation encompassing 9 provincial parks from the city limits of Calgary to the Rockies. Our Rockies Adventures take us to the Spray Valley Provincial Park, just outside of Canmore, where many great walks await us such as Chester Lake, Sparrow Hawk and the Old Goat Glacier. With  a very high probability of seeing large mammals such as moose, Grizzly and Black bear and even wolves from the safety of the vehicle. A treat after a day of hiking is heading to Mt Engadine Lodge, a private lodge within the park which serves up an amazing afternoon tea along with fresh pastries. What a great way to end the day!

 

Icefall Lodge

The true gem in our ‘Rockies Crown” is Icefall Lodge, one of the premier ski touring lodges in all of Canada. Located on a 50,000 acres tenure, deep in the western slope of the Rockies, near Golden, B.C. Icefall is a hikers paradise. Fly in by private helicopter and let the mountain professionals of Icefall do the rest. Fully guided and catered, the Icefall experience is unique. Only 15 guests at one time can explore this pristine wilderness area, where large mammals frequently roam. Surrounded by jagged peaks and huge glaciated faces of rock, wilderness is all around. After a day on the trail, luxuriate in the sauna and enjoy a gourmet meal and excellent wines provided by the Icefall staff. Please enquire if you would be interested in an Icefall extension as not all of our trips make this incredible journey.
