Experience one of the best backpacking expeditions in the Rockies on this trek into Kootenay National Park. This sublime backpacking tour encapsulates much of the unique ambiance of the southern Canadian Rockies. Representative landscapes are revealed to you along the way as you crest each pass and enter each valley: Primeval forests, flower-strewn meadows, turquoise lakes reflecting rugged peaks and glaciers.
Walking is never boring in this wonderland with unbelievable flowers in July and August to be followed in September by the blazing fall colors of the larches which punctuate and define the alpine meadows.
You and your hiking companions will be another attraction. The relaxed ambiance on the trail and around the campfire will add a whole new dimension to your holiday in the mountains. With its mostly moderate distances and opportunities for ridge hiking, the tour can be a great first time backpacking experience in the Canadian Rockies. Not only is there exquisite scenery but you will also be sharing the trail with like-minded people from around the globe. It all adds up to an active and exhilarating mountain holiday.
