Backpacking Trips

Overview

During summer, we love to get on some back-country adventures! Our Parks are open and ready for you to discover and we can’t wait to take you out there to discover the beauty of the Canadian Rockies!

Never gone backpacking before? Not a problem, we are experienced and can teach you every trick we know so you go from being a rookie to being a pro!

General Information

A Pre-trip meeting will take place online 1-2 weeks prior to the trip departure to make sure every participant has all the information and gear needed for the trip.

A Trip Information Letter with precise trip itinerary and a gear list will be emailed to each guest upon registration.

Level of difficulty: from easy to moderate to difficult. Expect multi-hours of hiking with a medium to heavy backpack on you.. of course we will take breaks to rest and enjoy the views! 🙂

Maximum group size: 4 guests, 1 guide.

We are flexible and can arrange Custom Trips for your group/s: Family friendly, French speaking, Women only etc.. any date and time you wish (pending ability to find campgrounds).

  • We will not offer any carpooling options but people of the same household should feel free to carpool.
  • We will make sure everyone stays at a 2m/6 feet distance at all times on the trail, during breaks and around the campsites.
  • No food/beverage will be shared amongst participants unless they are from the same household.
  • We encourage you to carry hand-sanitizer and use it regularly throughout the day. We will also have hand-sanitizer at disposal for everyone to use.
  • Face masks: we, the guides, will have our own mask/face cover in case we have to get close to you for any reason – from shoes laces or backpack issues to administering 1st aid. In the case of 1st aid we will ask you to wear a mask/face cover for us to help you – yours or we can provide you with a new medical face mask and we will be wearing one as well as medical gloves.
  • You will have to sign a “Pre-Trip/Course Declaration of Health and Exposure” form prior to each trip, preferably online but we will bring some to the trail head. Anyone who refuses to fill and sign this form will not be able to participate.
  • What has not changed: you will have to sign our Liability Waiver at the time of booking the trip – one per person – or at the trail head. Anyone who refuses to fill and sign this waiver will not be able to participate.

Please do not hesitate to contact us for any questions you may have and also to talk pricing if you are in a situation where a discount is needed, thank you.
