Grab your water, tighten your laces and strap in, as our tour will ascend past a roaring 300m waterfall on route to a remote turquoise lake. If you feel courageous enough to swim in a glacier lake, enter an ice cave and touch fridge sized chunks of glacier broken off in the pristine lake while feeling surround by jagged mountains looking to crumble in at any moment, come along for this thriller of an adventure!

Why is Garibaldi Provincial Park so special?

Where glaciation and volcanism have left behind dramatic landscapes characterized by high jagged, ice-blanketed peaks towering above steep forested mountain slopes, which plunge to u-shaped valleys at relatively low elevations, makes Garibaldi Provincial Park one of the most unique and spectacular places on Earth.

Don’t forget your camera! Pristine emerald alpine lakes, lush vegetation and meadows full of wildflowers, abundant wildlife such as; black bear, golden eagles, bald eagles, mountain goat, deer, marmots, pikas and ptarmigan to name a few.

Come find the explorer within yourself as we hike through Garibaldi and find wildlife and fascinating geological features literally around every corner.

The trail, with the crashing sound of Wedgemount Falls in the distance, will lead us through a lush green forest, over a boulder field and finally into the protected valley of Wedgemount Lake. Immediately after arriving at the lake, the first thing we’ll want to do is jump in, so don’t forget your swimsuit! Ever heard of a glacial facial?
