From the European-esque cities in the east, across the vast prairies and snow-capped mountains to the pristine shores of the pacific Northwest – the people who have settled in this rugged land are as vibrant and lively as the bustling metropolis and wilderness they call home. Discover the colourful history, quirky culture and remote beauty that make Canada an adventure lover’s paradise.

  • Location: Vancouver to Yoho National Park

1 - Vancouver & British Columbia
From Vancouver, we cross the up-and-down landscape of grey, snow-dusted mountains and dark conifers. At our first stop, we set up camp beside a pristine glinting lake, far removed from the city you started in. You can talk around the flickering campfire and getting to know your fellow travelling companions. Accommodation: Camping included
2-3 - Yoho National Park
View the alpine meadows of Mount Revelstoke National Park en route to Yoho National Park. Hike or negotiate the rapids of the well-named Kicking Horse River. In any case, the tumbling cascades, glassy lakes and glinting peaks are drop-dead gorgeous... not to mention the glaciers. Accommodation: Camping included

  • Location: Banff to Lake Louise

4-5 - Banff National Park
Boot up, saddle up and breathe in the crisp alpine air where nature's bonanza includes beavers, bears, porcupines and elk. Ride the Banff Gondola to Sulphur Mountain's peak and recharge your batteries in the heavenly hot springs. Accommodation: Camping included
6 - Lake Louise
A nickname like the "gem of the Rockies" is a lot to live up to, but it's no sweat for Lake Louise. The imposing chateau looks on as mountains cluster round the turquoise surface. As for you, well, you could always hike out to the Plain-of-Six-Glaciers or inspect the scene by paddle power on an optional canoe trip. Accommodation: Camping included

  • Location: Jasper to Wells Grey Provincial Park

7-8 - Jasper National Park
The widescreen scenery keeps on coming. The breathtaking Icefields Parkway provides a peach of a drive with panoramic views of endless valleys, sheer ridges, glaciers and spruce forests - truly one of the world's ultimate drives. Jasper's wildlife puts up a fight for your attention too; the sharp-eyed may glimpse grizzlies, wolves or caribou. This sprawling natural expanse offers bike trails, helicopter flights and ice-walks through the most spectacular scenery that the Canadian Rockies offers. Accommodation: Camping included
9 - Wells Grey Provincial Park
The stillness, silence and isolation go up another notch. Drive through secluded Wells Gray to the end of the road and our awaiting canoes and overnight on the shores of Clearwater Lake. Nature surely never felt closer than on your included outback canoe trip. A unique and unforgettable experience! Accommodation: Camping included

  • Location: Whistler to Vancouver

10-11 - Whistler
Travel the old Gold Rush trail through Cache Creek and on to the adventure capital of Western Canada! Perhaps better known as a winter resort, Whistler has plenty of heart-pumping action and well as being an area of stunning beauty all year round. Accommodation: Camping included
12 - Vancouver
Travel onto Vancouver where your tour finishes at approximately 17:00. Vancouver is a vibrant metropolis and there is plenty to occupy your time, we recommend you extend your stay to enjoy this buzzing city. With its stunning combination of mountains and coastline, the city boasts outstanding views. Stride, rollerblade or pedal your way round Stanley Park, or relax and let the free shuttle take the strain. Walk the Capilano Suspension Bridge, 230 head-spinning feet above the river before checking out the city nightlife in Gas Town or the eclectic "Robsonstrasse". This tour ends at our gateway hotel at approximately 17:00 hrs. We can book you post-tour accommodation at our gateway hotel if required. If you are planning to fly tonight, please do not book a flight that departs before 21:00 hrs.

FAQ

Between 6 and 13 people with one tour leader.

Close

2. What is the average age of the tour participants?

The age range is 18-38 and early to mid twenties are the most common ages.

Close

3. How fit do I need to be?

There will be a fair bit of walking and hiking on the tour as well as the opportunity to do lots of activities. So you should be relatively fit but dont forget that activities are optional so you can do the trip at your own pace.

Close

4. Will I be the only person travelling on my own?

No, the majority of our travellers are solo travellers and you will meet lots of people on your tour!

Close

5. What if I have never camped before?

Don't worry, your fantastic tour leader will show you how to put your tent up and use your camping equipment.

Close

6. How much money do I need to bring on the tour?

For TrekAmerica camping tours you will need to budget for the food kitty. This is usually US$10 a day however see individual tour pages for specific details. This will cover all of your meals while camping but does not cover meals during hotel stops or when the group chooses to sample regional cuisine.

Close

7. Do I need to tip?

Although it may not be customary in your country, it is normal and expected in North America to tip waiters, bar staff, any type of guide and taxi drivers. Service workers are paid a low wage and depend upon their tips for their livelihood. A minimum of 15% is standard in restaurants. Your trek leader works long and hard for you. He or she may well become your close friend during the trek, but they also need to pay their bills. If the leader's performance meets or exceeds your expectations we recommend a tip of US $5 per person, per day.
