You can expect long days on rugged trails, however the rewarding feeling of completing this trek is well worth it. This natural mountain wilderness is truly a trekker's paradise.
Day 1: Fly London to Calgary
Transfer to Canmore, at the foot of the Rockies.
Day 2: Canmore - Mt Yamnuska - Canmore (Trek approx. 4-5 hrs)
The slopes of Mount Yamnuska, on the edge of the Rockies, provide a steady warm-up to kick-start our Rockies adventure! Magnificent views over the Bow Valley whet our appetites for the days to come!
Day 3: Canmore - Iceberg Lake - Rampart Creek (Trek approx. 5-6 hrs)
Take in the magnificent glacier views as we drive along Icefields Parkway to our trailhead. We head towards beautiful Bow Lake, wandering through meadows of wildflowers with views to the jagged peaks before us. Following the shores of Bow Lake, we pass the top of the impressive Bow Falls before tackling a rocky path to the impossibly green Iceberg Lake.
Day 4: Rampart Creek - Wilcox Pass & Tangle Creek - Rampart Creek (Trek approx. 6-7 hrs)
We walk through forests of spruce and firs before our steadily ascending path steepens. We are likely to see bighorn sheep grazing and can enjoy unparalleled views across to the dazzling Athabasca Glacier. At Wilcox Pass, we soak up the wonderful views before continuing downhill to Tangle Creek and Falls.
Day 5: Rampart Creek - Iceline Trail - Lake Louise (Trek approx. 8-9 hrs)
Labelled one of the most spectacular hikes in the Rockies, today’s challenging route in Yoho National Park takes us up close to breathtakingly beautiful glaciers and impressive waterfalls. We continue to the impressive Twin Falls before a short drive brings us to the inspirational Lake Louise.
Day 6: Lake Louise - Paradise Valley - Lake Louise (Trek approx. 7-8 hours)
Our route today takes us past picture-perfect glacial lakes of bright turquoise, and beautiful green valleys dwarfed by inspiring peaks. We climb to Sentinel Pass and drink in the views of dramatic rock formations and the Valley of the Ten Peaks. We then descend into Larch Valley, named for its forests of larch, which are especially beautiful in autumn.
Day 7: Lake Louise - Cory & Edith Passes - Banff
We’re going out on a literal high! Our last trail starts misleadingly easily, before climbing steadily to emerge from the tree-line. Jaw-dropping views surround us: snow-capped mountains rising from the forested valley; glaciers and rocky pinnacles; unobstructed views of the jagged, fang-shaped Mount Louis. Our trail continues to Cory Pass and contours around Mount Edith before coming to Edith Pass. We then descend through forest and are whisked back to Banff to celebrate with dinner.
Day 8: Free time Banff; Flight departs
Explore the charming mountain town of Banff before transferring to Calgary for our flights.
