Mount Assiniboine Provincial Park | A Hiking Tour in the Rockies

Holiday Duration: 6 Nights

Overview

Overview

Mt. Assiniboine Provincial Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site in the Canadian Rockies, is famous for its meadows and easy hiking peaks which lie below the Matterhorn-like summit that towers above.

This relaxed hiking programme is for those interested in experiencing four days of walking in this beautiful sub-alpine region of the Rockies. There are not many areas where it is possible to hike in such an amazing place and yet avoid carrying a heavy backpack. You will take a helicopter flight into the park, which is an added excitement.

Once in the park, walk among meadows and turquoise lakes. Hike up through golden larch trees and along the ridges above and take in the views from a sun-baked summit!

"The excursions were also perfect"

I would like to thank whoever put together the itinerary, chose the hotels and wrote the information for us to use en route. Everything was excellent! Each hotel was very good quality, but very different from the others. We saw such a variety of things. Our information led us to places we would never have found without it. The excursions were also perfect (canoeing, whale watching, sea kayaking), each of them very small businesses but with very friendly staff. Everything was very remote, which is what we expected, but we were so glad that we found it and were able to enjoy the essence of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island. Overall, we couldn't fault anything and we would be very keen to use your services again in the future.
