Hike Canadian Rockies; Banf, Lake Louise, Jasper - Aug. 29 - Sept. 6, 2013

If emerald lakes, alpine meadows, and roaring waterfalls peak your interest you will love to visit the Canadian Rockies.  Best of all, tourism will not have peaked yet!

We will enjoy all the comforts of home in the towns of Banff, Jasper and the village of Lake Louise, but we also will step out into the wilderness and the home of some of North America's wildest creatures, including Big Horn Sheep, Deer, Elk, Caribou, Grizzly bears, Caribou, Coyotes, Wolves and Mountain Lions. 

Hikes will include and introduction hike to Tunnel Mountain Path which has phenomenal vistas, Big Beehive to see Lake Louise, and Cirque Lake, which is hidden a short distance from the Icefields Parkway, the worlds most stunning roadway.  Good chance we will see grizzly bears and cubs from the van while on the Icefields Parkway.

There are a total of eight lodging nights at hotels.  We will be staying nights 1 and 2 in Banff, nights 3 and 4 in Jasper, nights 5, 6 and 7 in the Lake Louise area, and heading back to Calgary for night 8. 

Yes, a passport is required!

Planned Vacations, What a Concept !

Sure, there are maps and tour guides and the Chamber of Commerce, but wouldn't it be nice if we had trips already planned and we knew what we wanted to do at those locations by others recommendations. I have been leading vacation trips with OutsideNE and the Appalachian Mountain Club for over ten years.
