overview

This nine day adventure to Canada features five days of trekking through the picturesque and diverse landscape of the Rocky Mountains. We cross the continental divide at 2,300m and hike into the stunning Mt. Assiniboine National Park, spending a night in the charming town of Banff. The awe-inspiring Ten Peaks stand before us as we continue trekking amongst the rich wildlife, passing chipmunks and Caribous on our way. After a day on the Columbas Icefield, we walk alongside Lake Louise, marvelling at its emerald sparkle. This challenge begins as soon as you sign up when you will get your challenge pack and information about discounts from UK retailers for your trip.
