2020 Itinerary

Leaving Vancouver you enter a land of snow-dusted mountains, dark conifers and glistening lakes as you cross the landscape of British Columbia. Travel the old Gold Rush Trail and head to the adventure capital of Western Canada! Don't let the fact that Whistler is widely known for being the ultimate winter resort fool you; Whistler has plenty of action all year round! This place is a wonderland for two wheels so opt for some world-class mountain biking on the incredible trails. For a very different perspective, try zip lining through the tree tops or enjoy a ride through the skies in a glass-bottomed gondola. Whether you're an adrenaline junkie or someone who likes to be at one with nature, there's something for everyone in Whistler. In the summer you'll find locals hanging out by the beautiful lakeshores, so why not join them for the perfect afternoon?

Home to the famous Helmcken Falls, Canada's fourth highest waterfall, the park boasts beautiful meadows full of wildflowers and bear roam freely around the park. Enjoy views of high mountains, deep canyons, brooding old-growth forests and raging white water rivers.

Today's drive will blow your mind as you cruise along the stunning Icefields Parkway. Running parallel to the Continental Divide, it's one of the world's finest drives with the real 'wow' factor!  Next up, you reach Yoho National Park. 'Yoho' comes from the Cree word for awe and wonder and as soon as you start hiking through this national park, you'll soon see how it got its name. The scenery will continue to impress as you walk to Takakkaw Falls, cascading from the mountains to the valley below, and lay your eyes on the incredible Emerald Lake with its glacial hues and forest backdrop. Your leader will guide you on the Wapta Falls & Emerald Loop Trail to explore the best of Yoho. If you're feeling adventurous, embrace your wild side with some optional white water rafting down the aptly named Kicking Horse River, which offers some of the best rapids in the world – not to mention the coldest!

A nickname like the 'Gem of the Rockies' is a lot to live up to, but it's no sweat for Lake Louise. The imposing chateau looks on as mountains cluster around turquoise waters that have to be seen to be believed! Once you've stopped gawking at the incredible scenery that surrounds you, walk the beautiful lakeshore trail, hike out to the Plain of Six Glaciers tea house, or rent a canoe and soak up the scenery by paddle power and explore the lake at your leisure.

Boot up and breathe in the crisp alpine air with the resident Marmots, bears, porcupines and elk. Whether you explore Banff National Park from the road or on the trails, you'll be left speechless by its endless beauty. With 1600 km of trails, a town full of heritage and some incredible wildlife, you won't want to leave this mountain wonderland. One of the more popular trails in the park is the Sundance Canyon Trail, a laid-back walk past rolling hills and flowing streams and through narrow canyons. You may choose to ride the gondola to the peak of Sulphur Mountain, or for something really special, take a scenic glacier flight. End your active day with a recharge in Banff's heavenly hot springs.

It was insanely beautiful! Add it to your bucket list

Reviewed October 2019

I had the best 2 weeks. The scenery was amazing, the group were lovely and mostly solo trekkers - which was great because so was I, and our tour leader Mark was so knowledgeable and a great cook!

This was my first Trek America trip and my first time traveling solo. I am so pleased that I chose this company to travel with, everything was easy from start to finish and the tour was just brilliant! I’m currently looking at ways I can move to Canada!


Incredible experience seeing the most amazing scenery!

Reviewed September 2019

Mountie is an incredible trek offering the chance to fully experience Western Canada. Being in a group with a trek guide means you are able to see so much that you wouldn't be able to alone. Our trek leader would take us to her favourite places and knew when to go to avoid the hoards of other tourists, which gives you the most amazing scenery and experiences. We also saw so much wildlife including moose, bears and so many elk and even got to see the northern lights! The itinerary is perfectly paced so that you see a wide range of variety of places without feeling too rushed.
