Amazing trip with stunning scenery around every corner. Great guides and lucky to have a fun group. Camping was fine however you need good levels of fitness as most of walks include steep uphill climbs. Loved the additional excursions like kayaking, rafting and glacier walking! A trip to remember!

If you're considering this trip, don't hesitate - just sign up! There's a reason it has a five star rating. The guides (mine were Gabi and Jess) are fantastic and the scenery is awe-inspiring. Some of the hikes are challenging, but there are options to make the sights accessible to everyone. The meals were impressive for being prepared in camp!

Thank you Gaby and Julie for a wonderful week! This is an incredible trip in Canada and one that I will never forget. We went on some amazing hikes, swimming in lakes, a glacier walk, kayaking, stargazing, experienced sunsets and sunrises and learned how to make a fire! The tents are a great size for two people with enough space for bags aswell without feeling squashed. The food was amazing and very tasty with so many different options for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks. The hikes were very manageable, especially with some good walking boots which are a must! Fantastic week away and I highly recommend!
