Holiday Overview

Highlights

  • Hiking to spectacular viewpoints in Banff National Park
  • Climb Cirque Peak and Mount Bourgeau
  • High-level hiking in Glacier National Park
  • Stunning views of Lake Louise

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 and trekking 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.

Holiday Itinerary

  • Meet at the group hotel in downtown Calgary.

    Meet at the group hotel in downtown Calgary. Meals are not included on this day and depending on your arrival time you can choose to eat from several restaurants close to the hotel. KE Land Only package services begin with the overnight stay at the group hotel.

    • Accommodation Hotel

  • Morning briefing. Transfer to Canmore. Hike to Ha Ling Park. Transfer to Lake Louise.

    We meet our guide and have a trip briefing over breakfast at the hotel. We then have a short city tour around Calgary before transferring to the trailhead in Canmore for our hike to Ha Ling Peak. The peak was supposedly named after a Chinese railway worker who bet that he could climb it in 5 hours and did. This is a very pleasant walk initially through woodland and with a final rocky scramble to the summit which is a magnificent viewpoint over the valley. Returning from the summit we drive to Lake Louise. Drive time: 2 - 3 hrs.

  • The Mount Fairview Loop (2744m) or ascent of Mount Saint-Pirain (2649m)

    We have two options today depending on local conditions and our guides will decide the best one for the day. One option is the Mount Fairview Loop which takes us first to Fairview summit (2744m) which as its name suggests, is a superb look out over Lake Louise and the surrounding mountains and glaciers. From the top we descend by a different route over the 'saddleback'. A slightly easier option today is the ascent of Mont Saint-Piran (2649m) which also has great views over Lake Louise and Lake Agnes. Standing in the footsteps of Edward Wymper, from the summit we can see Mount Lefroy, Mount Temple and the Devil's Thumb .

We hike via Marion Lake and the Abbot Ridge on Mount Abbot with the option to scramble to the summit (2465m), depending on weather and the group. The Abbot Ridge offers a 360-degree panorama of the Western Rockies including the Hermit Range, Illecillewaet Glacier, the Asulkan Valley and its glacier, Mount Bonnet (3100m) and an endless array of peaks including: Avalanche Mountain, Eagle Peak, Uto Peak, and Mount Sir Donald.

    We drive (1 hour) to the summit parkway and hike via the pristine Miller and Eva Lakes to a col between Upper and Lower Jade Lake.

We hike along the Yoho river to Laughing falls and then climb to reach the 'Iceline' trail which follows a contour between glacier and treeline before dropping to Little Yoho Valley and the Stanley Mitchel hut.

  • Trek via the Bourgeau Lake to the summit of Mount Bourgeau (2931m).

    Today's long hike takes us via Bourgeau Lake to Mount Bourgeau (2931m), which is particularly impressive as we leave Banff to the west. The peak is named after a French botanist who was one of the explorers of the Rockies in 1859 and an ascent is one of the highlights to a visit to this range. From Bourgeau Lake we climb up to Harvey Col for a sensational ridge walk and final scramble to the summit. After the hike we return to the hostel in Banff.

  • Hike the Cory Pass (2350m).

    This is one of the best trails in the Rockies. We cross the Cory Pass (2350m) between the walls of Mount Cory (2800m) and Mount Edith (2555m) with diverse terrain and great views. There is around 950m elevation gain over 6km with some steep sections, one which requires hands on the rock. During the day we encounter rocks, loose stones, scree, boulders, dirt path...but the variety is what makes the trail so good. After the pass we descend on scree into the valley past Mount Louis, before a final little ascent and then returning back to our start point through the forest. After the hike we drive back to Banff and our hostel. Drive time: 1-2hrs.

    Today we traverse of the Centennial Ridge to Mount Allan (2820m). Built by the Rocky Mountain Ramblers hiking club in 1967, this is the highest maintained trail in the Rockies. The ridge is very dolomitic in character and full of interest. We pass through a feature known as the 'rock garden', a cluster of large conglomerate rocks and beyond these is a series of gendarmes up t to 25 metres high. The final ascent to Mount Allen is steep with sensational views over the ridge. About an hour after leaving the rock garden, we reach the summit where we have impressive views of the surrounding Rockies and over the town of Canmore. We make our descent via Bow Valley.

Tipping is the accepted way of saying ‘thank you’ for good service. It is important to remember that tipping is voluntary and should be dependent on good service. In North America it is the norm to tip for most services and it is recommended that you set aside a few dollars each day to allow for this.

There is no strict weight limit on this holiday other than that imposed by your airline. We do ask you to restrict your luggage to one main bag and a small daypack. Your main bag will be transported in the support vehicle or attached cargo trailer.

Our holidays are normally designed with minimal 'down time' at the start of the trip, but having a day or two at the beginning will have the additional benefit of allowing you time to get over the stress of travelling across time zones, leaving you refreshed and ready for your holiday. We can easily arrange for you to have additional nights and airport transfers.

All KE clients will receive a FREE KE trek bag.  These have been specially made to stand up to the rigours of adventure travel.  Your KE bag will be posted to you when your trip is guaranteed to run or on receipt of your booking if the trip is already guaranteed.  If you have travelled with us before and already have a KE trek bag you can select an alternative free gift in the booking process.

This holiday involves going to moderately high altitude.  During the course of your trip you will reach altitudes in excess of 2500 metres.  Most people will have no difficulty with this level of altitude but before coming on the holiday, we recommend you read the advice on trekking at high altitude.  You can also talk to one of our trekking experts if you have any concerns about altitude.

You can check the trip status for each departure in ‘Dates and Prices’ table. Other than in exceptional circumstances, we will not cancel a trip once it has achieved this guaranteed to run status and so you are free to proceed with your international flight booking and other travel arrangements.

A passport with 6 months remaining validity at the end of your stay is generally required. The information that we provide is for UK passport holders. Please check the relevant embassy or consulate for other nationalities. It is your responsibility to ensure that you have the correct travel documents and visas for your holiday. Visa requirements and charges are subject to change without notice. If you are travelling outside the EU you should have at least 2 blank pages in your passport for each country that you visit.

Visa Canada

As of March 2016 all citizens (except for USA citizens) will require an eTA (Electronic Travel Authorisation), and you must get this before boarding any Canada-bound aircraft or ship. The fee is CAD$7 and you should apply for it at http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/visit/eta-start.asp

Transit via USA

You will require an ESTA (Electronic System for Travel Authorisation), and you must get this before boarding any US-bound aircraft or ship, or entering on a land border. The fee is USD$14 and you should apply for it at https://esta.cbp.dhs.gov/esta/. With the ESTA complete, the majority of British Citizen passport holders can enter the US under the Visa Waiver Programme, VWP. As of 1st April 2016 you will be required to have a passport with an intergrated chip. Note that if you have travelled to Iraq, Syria, Iran or Sudan in the last 5yrs you will have to apply for a visa.

NOTE: This is required if you are transiting through the USA 

You should contact your doctor or travel clinic to check whether you require any specific vaccinations or other preventive measures. You should be up to date with routine courses and boosters as recommended in the UK e.g. diphtheria-tetanus-polio and measles-mumps-rubella, along with hepatitis A and typhoid. A good online resource is Travel Health Pro.

The unit of currency in Canada is the Canadian Dollar.

We recommend you check if you require an adaptor for your electrical items at:

http://www.worldstandards.eu/electricity/plugs-and-sockets/

It makes a lot of sense to spend some time before coming on a walking holiday getting some additional exercise. The fitter you are, after all, the more enjoyable you will find the experience. We suggest that you adopt a weekly exercise regime. Regular hiking in hill country is the best preparation but running, cycling and swimming are also good.

As a reputable tour operator, KE supports the British Foreign & Commonwealth Offices ‘Know before you go’ campaign to enable British citizens to prepare for their journeys overseas, and we recommend that all KE travellers take a look at the FCO Travel Advice for their chosen destination on the official FCO website: www.fco.gov.uk. North Americans can also check out the U.S. Department of State website: www.travel.state.gov for essential travel advice and tips.

KE treat the safety and security of all clients as the most important aspect of any trip we organise. We would not run any trip that we did not consider reasonably safe.  Should the FCO advise against travel for any reason, we will contact everyone booked to travel to discuss the situation.  We receive regular updates direct from the FCO and are in constant touch with our contacts on the ground.  If you have any questions about government travel advice, please call our office.

The weather in the Canadian Rocky Mountains is ever-changing and always unpredictable. Summer days are long, but the summer season is short. July is the warmest month with a mean daily maximum temperature of 22°C. We can expect to encounter temperatures during the day ranging from 18°C. to 27°C. Naturally, at the highest elevations on our trip, the daytime temperatures will be lower than this. At night, the temperatures will typically drop to around 10°C or even a few degrees lower. Although the weather is relatively stable at this time of year, we can expect some rainfall and mountains produce their own weather.
