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!

"we had a truly wonderful time"

Our visit to Canada has, sadly, been and gone too quickly. We had an absolutely wonderful time in Vancouver, Victoria, and all points to Banff. The travel arrangements were excellent. The hotels were all good and the various tours etc were again excellent. In addition to seeing numerous bears, eagles, the occasional whale etc., we were amazed at the size, the wilderness and peace of it all, and the Rockies were....the Rockies. People were incredibly and genuinely friendly and welcoming. So, many, many thanks for making the arrangements for us. we had a truly wonderful time...
