Departure date

Day 1 Calgary or Banff to Banff National Park
This morning you meet with your guide as arranged in Calgary or in Banff. On the campground (showers) in the forests of Banff National Park you will pitch your tent for the next two days. Now it is time for the first hike along the shores of Minnewanka Lake on one of the many mountain trails. Hiking time 2 – 3 hours.

Day 2 Banff National Park
A full day hike into the mountains. Your guide knows the best destinations for the time of the year. Hike 7.5 km with 725m gain to a hidden lake and another 2 km into the pass at 2470m. Afterwards you might want to relax in the warm sulphur pool or browse through the stores and boutiques in Banff. Walking time 5 – 7 hours.

Day 3 Banff National Park to Yoho National Park
You would not want to miss the picture postcard scenery surrounding Lake Louise. The guide suggests 3.5 km (2 mi) path with 400 m (1325 ft) gain to the historic tea house by an alpine lake. Here a network of easy to demanding trails is tempting you to go further and higher. For example, the 15km (9.3mi) circuit into the Plain of Six Glaciers or a 2.5 km (1.6 mi) climb with 515 m (1705 ft) gain to a summit with exceptional views of nearby peaks and distant landscapes. Camp for today and tomorrow (showers) near the alpine village of Lake Louise. Hiking time 3 - 5 hours.

Day 4 Yoho National Park
There is an opportunity for a great white water rafting trip on the Kicking Horse River. It involves a side trip to Golden in B.C., headquarters for many outdoor adventures. Of course hiking is always an alternative. Among the choice of trails the guide would like to show you is an 18 km (11 mi) circuit trough two flower decorated passes at 1830 m and 2180 m (6093 ft and 7250 ft) and spectacular views of Emerald Lake. The Natural Bridge, Takakkaw Falls, and Spiral Tunnel are other attractions of Yoho Park. Hiking time 6 hours.

Day 5 Yoho National Park to Jasper National Park
There are countless photo opportunities along the Icefields Parkway, with famous names like Peyto Lake and Bow Summit. You might see wapiti, bighorn sheep and bears right by the side of the road. You get the best view of Saskatchewan Glacier after a steep, 2.5 km ascent of a windswept ridge. Spend the next three days on a campground near Jasper. Walking time 2 hours.

Day 6 Jasper National Park
Side trip to Maligne Lake: follow your guide on an 8 km circuit through flower covered alpine meadows to an elevation of 2160 m or climb up to the peak at 2789m. Trail rides or a boat cruise can be arranged as options. How about renting a mountain bike to explore the surroundings? Walking time 2 to 6 hours.

Day 7 Jasper to Banff or Calgary
Mighty Athabasca Falls count among the attractions of this park. Trails near the Columbia Icefields start at tree line and are especially rewarding thanks to their magnificent views of the glaciers and surrounding ranges. Here your hike is 8 km (5 mi) with 335 m (1155 ft) gain into a pass at 2375 m (7980 ft). After lunch is transfer back to Banff or Calgary (possibly in a large, comfortable coach). Hiking time 2 - 3 hours. Arrival in Banff at 18:30, in downtown Calgary at 21:00, at the airport at 21:45.
