Glacier, Yoho, and Banff National Parks: Wildflowers, glaciers, and lakes
Treat yourself to a 3-day hiking getaway this summer! We’ll carpool from Calgary bright and early on day 1 to hike the Iceline Trail in Yoho National Park. Post-hike we continue west to Heather Mountain Lodge, near Golden BC. Day 2 starts with a tasty breakfast at the lodge followed by a hike to the spectacular Balu Pass (photo above), in Glacier National Park, just a 10-minute drive from the lodge. Back for supper and relaxation at the lodge as we soak up the mountain views and recharge for day 3, a hike in Banff National Park. We’ll arrive back in Calgary around 5 pm on Day 3.
Cost: $1000 plus 5% GST (double occupancy, if available or bring a friend). $1300 plus 5% GST (Single occupancy, if available). Cost without accommodation (this option lets you reserve your own room): $700 plus 5% GST
What’s included? 3 hikes, 2 nights accommodation at Heather Mountains Lodge, breakfast and hikers bagged lunch.
What’s not included? A group dinner will be arranged at Heather Mountain Lodge. The cost of dinner is not included. Check the menu.
Hike details: Hikes will be between 13-15 km each day with elevations of about 700 meters or less. We will be hiking, including a nice break for lunch, for approximately 5-6 hours on day 1 and 2 and 4-5 hours on Day 3. The plan at the moment is to hike the Iceline Trail in Yoho National Park on Day 1, Balu Pass in Glacier National Park on Day 2, and Helen Lake in Banff National Park on Day 3. There are many hike options so the exact hikes could change based on conditions.
