Kindersley Pass, Kootenay National Park - $149

Kindersley Pass is a favorite of ours in Kootenay National Park. This extraordinary hike takes us through old growth forest, slide paths loaded with wild flowers and high alpine ridge walks that will take your breath away. We will also travel through incredible bear habitat and may have the opportunity to view “Fuzzy Wuzzy” enjoying Glacier Lillies and more! Options await for those that have the energy to tackle an additional 300m+ elevation gain. Mt. Kindersley SE summit awaits.

Side x Sides & Summits - $359

This is the ultimate combination of adventures! We utilize “Side-by- Sides” (SxS) from our friends at Toby Creek Adventures and use their all terrain vehicles to access the high alpine without having to hike for hours to get there. We travel in these fun open air ATVs past hidden waterfalls, historic mines sites and an incredible alpine cabin.

Stanley Glacier Hike, Kootenay National Park - $149

An absolute classic of Kootenay National park. You will experience the remnants of a historical burn from 2003 and explore the impressive regrowth of Lodge Pole Pine. We make our way up towards the Stanley Glacier cirque. Dwarfed by the tremendous Stanley guard wall we slowly ascend above tree-line. From here we have options to hunt for fossils dated over 505 million years ago. This magnificent setting is a breathtaking look at a Rockies classic!
