The stunning peaks, glaciers and high passes of the Canadian Rockies are best appreciated on foot. This adventure packs in the highlights of the area’s best parks, including an exhilarating heli-hike at the base of Mt Assiniboine, the "Matterhorn" of the Canadian Rockies. Waterton Lakes National Park with its red rock canyons and deep blue lakes is the perfect backdrop for our first hike. We make our way north through Kananaskis country to the town of Banff. For the next 2 days, we enjoy alpine hikes in Banff National Park€ross scenic mountain passes, surrounded by alpine lakes and meadows. Back on the road, along the famous Columbia Icefields Parkway, we stop and hike to Wilcox Pass for sweeping views of the Columbia Icefield. In Lake Louise, we choose from a treasure trove of great hikes with awesome views over Moraine Lake and the Valley of the Ten Peaks. Finally we helicopter into the base of Mt Assiniboine, and undertake a unique heli hike into a remote area where we camp for 2 nights and spend the days enjoying high alpine hikes (up to 2635m) with panoramic views stretching from dramatic Mt Assiniboine to Kootenay National Park.
