Example Itinerary

Day 1: We will meet at the Cross River Wilderness Centre main lodge for breakfast at 8:00 am. After breakfast, we will conduct final group packing arrangements, then depart for the trailhead. Most of today will consist of hiking to our first camp site area, and then setting up camp. Along the way, we work our way up through impressive subalpine forest to a high subalpine meadow with towering peaks on both sides. We camp for our first night in this meadow, and will have ample free time in the evening to settle in to our new surroundings..

Day 2: Bright and early we break camp, relax a bit with coffee and breakfast, then set out on our ascent to the expedition’s final destination—a high alpine plateau with breathtaking, pristine blue lakes, glacier fingers, and views of some of the highest mountain ranges in the Canadian Rockies. We stay here for the night, near one of the alpine lakes. Some exploring and pathfinding may also be necessary today as well.

Day 3This morning we’ll spend some time resting and walking without our packs, exploring around the lakes and plateau, or working our way up even higher, depending on group circumstances. Wildlife viewing opportunities, including bighorn sheep; mountain goats; wolverines; and eagles are all possibilities. After lunch, we will begin our descent back towards the trailhead, camping this third night in the same pass we camped in on Day 1.

Day 4: After we awake for breakfast, we will pack up, say goodbye to our camp area, and descend back down to the wilderness centre. You will have time to shower and refresh before continuing on with the rest of your holiday.
