Reviews          

The flight from Tyax Lodge to Lorna Lake was a highlight for me. The bird’s eye views of gentle-rolling hills and snow-capped peaks were superb and the experience of taking off and landing on the lake was very exciting and unforgettable.

In the sweeping mountain landscapes of British Colombia this unique Mountain Kingdoms trip is a combination of picturesque day walks in the Garibaldi Provincial Park and Whistler mountains together with a five day trek through the wilderness of the South Chilcotin Mountain Park.

Garibaldi Park and Whistler provide a superbly scenic start to our trip. We ride gondolas to high mountain trailheads, hike through splendid scenery to impressive overlooks and spend relaxed nights in the mountain resorts of Whistler and Squamish, before a short flight takes us north to Lorna Lake and the start of our trek.

Staying in comfortable accommodation at four beautifully located backcountry camps, we wake each day to a good breakfast before heading out on the trail. We walk from camp to camp through a landscape of dome shaped mountains and distant jagged peaks with gently sloping valleys dotted by alpine lakes, enjoying the rare solitude of a true wilderness trek. Revitalised, we return to civilisation and end our fantastic holiday in the attractive waterfront city of Vancouver.
