Hike the towering mountains and glacier-fed lakes of the Canadian Rockies and trek Hut to Hut in the remote backcountry of Banff National Park on this 6 day, Women-Only, Small Group Hiking Adventure Tour in Canada!

This is not the maple syrup harvest your aunt went to that one time. THIS IS WILD CANADA, SISTER!

Banff is nestled in the Canadian Rockies, surrounded on all sides by National and Provincial Parks. It’s ridiculous how gorgeous it is. Enjoy iconic day hikes, mountain town downtime with beer, and quiet backcountry bliss amongst flanneled femmes.

Your first three days are dedicated to the Parks exploring on day hikes to turquoise glacier-fed lakes, past waterfalls, along pointed mountain ridgelines, and through luscious green valleys that put the Hidden Valley Ranch label to shame. You’ll snap that iconic photo by Moraine Lake to add to your Instagram feed. You’ll feel as if you’re in a fairy tale admiring the chateau from Lake Louise. You’ll also enjoy exploring lesser-known trails as our local guides share their favorite hikes. You could be hiking to glacier-fed lakes in Banff National Park, past stunning waterfalls in Yoho National Park, up and over a mountain pass in Kananaskis Country, and more. 

Each evening, we’ll return to our downtown Banff Hotel, roll on some deodorant, and head out on the town to dine as a group. In your free time, soak your beautiful bones in one of the outdoor hot tubs or curl up cat-like beside the outdoor fireplace. Buzzed storytelling is encouraged.

On the final three days of your adventure, we leave behind the hustle and noise of the town and tourists. You’ll load up a 70L backpack with glacier crossing gear and all of the essentials for a hut to hut trek across the Wapta Icefields. The Icefields are rolling, gentle glaciers that you will trek up and over during the course of three days. 

You’ll experience first hand a rapidly disappearing mountain landscape while immersing yourself in a truly remote and unique, backcountry environment. Your destination each evening is rustic, remote alpine huts high up in mountains. There aren’t many backcountry treks that you can get the alpine trifecta – glaciers, mountains, and cozy alpine huts!

“Yesterday I saw the sunrise on a glacier. After 5 straight days of hiking with the most amazing women and Explorer Chick Adventure Co., we woke up in our little hut in the middle of nowhere on a glacier to end our epic journey… There are so many amazing moments from this adventure I’m not sure how to express them all. Except, I’m grateful. I’m grateful for the opportunity, I’m grateful for a body that made me able to do it and I’m grateful for every strong, amazing woman I met along the way. Don’t wait to do your own adventure, whatever that means t you. Don’t wait for the perfect timing or the perfect body. Perfection doesn’t exist. Live your life today, the way you want to live it. I’d rather live with sore knees and a lighter bank account than to miss out on filling my life with amazing experiences. Tomorrow’s sunrise isn’t promised, make sure you make today’s count.” –Explorer Chick Amanda
