Hiking the Canadian Rocky Mountains with Yamnuska: Beauty and Adventure
Yamnuska offers scheduled hiking and backpacking trips to different areas of the Canadian Rocky Mountains in Banff, Alberta, each with its own unique ambiance, beauty and challenge. These trips can be arranged for private groups if our dates don’t suit you.
From Waterfalls to Forests: Escape to the Great Outdoors of Canada’s Rockies
Yamnuska’s backpacking adventures in the Canadian Rockies are great escapes. As days pass you fall into a rhythm, you relax and sore muscles firm up. Hiking at an easy pace you soon forget that you’re moving at all as you become absorbed with your surroundings: a waterfall breaks through the cliffs above, an orchid peeps through the moss on the forest floor, clouds scud past the peaks high above. The mountains provide endless distractions.
After a couple of days you realize that the next campsite is not the objective, it’s the journey that counts! Reaching the end you’re tempted to take a sharp turn, head up the next valley and just keep walking!
