Reviews for Canadian Rockies & wilderness walking holiday


review 5 Jul 2015

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Hiking the Iceline trail in Yoho National Park. Seeing grizzly and black bears by the roadside.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

The pace of this vacation is a bit frenetic and there was very little 'down time'. Days started early and every minute was taken up with hiking, cooking for the group (of 16 in our case) and washing up, putting up or taking down tents and traveling between destinations, but, despite the hard work, it was one of the best vacations I've ever had. Truly fabulous group leaders and amazingly beautiful places. The hikes are tough and you need to be very fit to enjoy all of them.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Not particularly, but our guides were very knowledgeable and taught us a lot about Canada, the destruction of the native peoples and their ways of life and the devastation being caused currently by the rampant oil industry.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Truly fabulous.
