This outdoor adventure delves right into the heart of Canada’s epic landscapes, from soaring mountain peaks to coastal and temperate rainforests, with dramatic canyons, towering waterfalls and colossal glaciers in between. Explore these glorious natural wonders on walking, hiking and soft adventure excursions in a like-minded small group with experienced guides. Highlights include hiking quiet alpine trails and a jet boat safari through lush rainforest in search of moose and bears.
We travel as a small touring group of enthusiastic, active travellers who enjoy the outdoors and a slower, natural pace. Being led by a professional and experienced guide with local knowledge ensures we get to see the very best that each area has to offer. We explore the mountains and valleys of Alberta and British Columbia on easy and moderate hikes taking in stunning vistas, lakes, waterfalls, canyons, glaciers and lush boreal rainforests. After each outing we return to the comforts of great hotels in several quintessential Canadian villages and resort communities. A fascinating wildlife river tour and sightseeing tour by bike perfectly complement eight days of hiking to some of the most spectacular sites in Banff and Jasper National Parks, Wells Gray Park and the peaks of Whistler - Canada how it was truly meant to be seen.
