Explore the backcountry of the Canadian Rockies on this backpacking expedition to Mount Assiniboine. From Mount Assiniboine, the 'Matterhorn of the Rockies', vast alpine meadows stretch far to the south. Add forested valleys and rocky peaks and you have a world-famous hiking area which we look forward to sharing with you.
This hike is designed specifically for backpackers who want to avoid more difficult itineraries whilst still preserving a true back country experience. From the vast park-like Assiniboine Meadows you drop into the eerie rockscape of the aptly named "Valley of the Rocks". From here you climb to Citadel Pass and back to beautiful meadows which will lead us to the trip's conclusion at Sunshine Village.
Join our guides in July and August when the alpine wildflowers are in full bloom or in September when the whole landscape blazes yellow and orange as the larches change color before winter. If great scenery, healthy exercise and good company sound like a great outdoor holiday then come and join our guides for an unforgettable mountain experience.
