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 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). This action-packed walking holiday offers the very best of the Canadian Rockies.
This trip is one of our ‘Explore More' range of outstanding adventure holidays which we are running in conjunction with our friends at Allibert and Hauser (France and Germany's leading adventure travel operators). The trips we have chosen for this range are undoubtedly some of the finest adventures on the planet. They are also ‘specialist' and will appeal to those who have ‘been there, done that' in many parts of the world and are now looking for something new. The cosmopolitan nature of the groups will be an important part of the Explore More experience!
