This snowshoeing holiday in the Canadian Rockies and Yellowstone National Park really is the ultimate in wilderness experience and wintery magic. In the Canadian Rockies we have snowshoeing days in the Banff and Lake Louise areas including Lake Agnes and Emerald Lake. We also hop up to Yoho National Park for a day snowshoeing amongst the majestic white clad mountains and pine trees dripping in snow. A couple of days in the lesser visited (but totally splendid) Kananaskis Park ends our time in Canada and we cross the border into the USA and onto the very special Yellowstone National Park. In winter the wildlife in the park comes to life and the sight of bison covered in icicles from the cooled steam from the geysers (including Old Faithful) can be found no where else on this earth. Whilst quietly snowshoeing through the park we are also likely to see moose, elk and possibly even a wolf or two. Snowshoeing in this area is extremely special and it will be a holiday of a life-time.
Please note that we are selling this trip in conjunction with our partners at Hauser (Germany's leading independent adventure travel operator) and Allibert (France's leading Trekking operator). As a result, these groups, which are led by an English-speaking Canadian guide, may have an interesting cosmopolitan mix.
Is this holiday for you?
On this holiday we have 10 days of snowshoeing in the Canadian Rockies and Yellowstone National Park. The days are between 2-6hrs snowshoeing. You should have a good level of hill walking fitness, but no snowshoeing experience is necessary. There is one short walk where you will be using crampons and not snowshoes. Again no previous experience is required and this walk is optional. There are two days when there are long transfers in the vehicle to cover the distances required to travel between Yellowstone National Park and the Canadian Rockies. There are also transfers on several of the other days. All walks are day walks. The accommodation is in comfortable lodges and hotels. Please note that one departure starts in Calgary and finishes in Bozeman and the next departure will start in Bozeman and finish in Calgary.
