Best 5 Hikes on Canada Walking Holidays

Lake Agnes Trail: Running through Banff National Park, the Lake Agnes Trail takes in some of Canada’s most epic scenery. From turquoise mountain lakes that glisten below imposing peaks to dense evergreen forests, this trail is wild and pretty and filled with wildlife. Depending on what time of year you visit, the ground is carpeted in wildflowers and the total serenity is a million miles from hectic city life. As you wander through the forest, you’ll catch glimpses of Lake Louise before 360-degree panoramas open up at the summit. Continuing to Lake Agnes, you can enjoy a well-earned break at the iconic tea house.

Iceline Trail: As you head towards Yoho National Park along the Kicking Horse River, there is beautiful alpine scenery to be explored. Often overlooked by tourists, Yoho is less visited than other national parks and holds some wonderful natural gems. You can hike sections of the trail if you don’t want to walk the full 21kms but either way, you’ll be rewarded with stunning landscapes made up of glacial peaks and waterfalls. As the trail meanders above the trees, you reach the iceline (alpine shelf) where mountain views stretch as far as the eye can see.

Parker Ridge Trail: This scenic trail can be found at the heart of the Canadian Rockies along the Icefields Parkway and is home to some of Canada’s most notable wildlife, including the black bear and Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep. Along the trail, you can also see the magnificent Saskatchewan Glacier, which is considered the icing on the cake of this walk. But the alpine landscape that surrounds the trail is just as captivating with views of snow-dusted peaks and glaciated valleys around every turn.

Cory Pass Trail: Follow the 14km trail that loops up to Cory Pass and through Edith Pass inside Banff National Park. Although there are some steep and challenging sections on the hike, there are plenty of sublime views that make your efforts worthwhile. Jagged mountains, emerald lakes and pine forests make up the varied landscape and nature lovers will be in their element. As you near Cory Pass some of the best views look out over Mount Cory and the Gargoyle Valley and if you’re lucky you might even spot a bear or two in the distance.

Mount Elphinstone Summit Trail: Mount Elphinstone is one of the highest peaks along the Sunshine Coast, and its summit trail steers you on a challenging yet rewarding journey up through 1260 metres of idyllic alpine scenery. You’ll walk among atmospheric forests where you might spot some of the local wildlife and to hair-raising ridges that let you peek below into Langdale creek. Once at the summit of Mount Elphinstone, you’ll find exceptional viewpoints where you can look out over Vancouver, Bowen Island, Gibsons and Howe Sound.

Fantastic trip expect all weathers from cold and wet to very warm. Its tough but worth it. Camping is good but expect hard ground to pitch tent on not grass. It’s a trip that you will talk about for a long time. So many different experiences.

Bethan Roberts Canadian Rockies: Heli-Hike & Wilderness

This was an amazing and unforgettable trip. The hikes were fabulous and the itinerary was ideal. 3 nights in each place meant you got to see a lot in each area and there wasn’t too much driving. The focus was on the hiking and the views and seeing the best of each area. This trip enabled us to see the best spots while at the same time getting off the beaten track. Would highly recommend this trip, well worth it.

Norma Wall Canadian Rockies: Heli-Hike & Wilderness

The Rockies are magnificent and this trip includes the famous areas around Banff and Jasper but also takes you into the mountains away from the crowds. The group was a mixture of ages but we were all quite experienced walkers. There is little flat so although the distances aren’t great the ascents are strenuous but you get into the heart of the mountains. The camping was very well organised and the food was excellent.
