Although we cater to all fitness levels, this tour is for moderate fit people. To reach Wedgemount Lake, expect to hike 1100m over 7km. Do not let this fool you as the spectacular alpine scenery makes this tour well worth it!
There will be steep climbs, hiking on boulders as well as loose rock. We always offer options, but to get the most out of your adventure and for the most rewarding views reaching Wedgemount Lake is recommended.
Food: All meals will be included for the duration of the adventure, except breakfast, so make sure to eat something light before pick-up time.
Your epic adventure will start when we pick you up in the morning at our meeting spot downtown, Vancouver. Whiling chatting with your new adventure friends, you’ll immediately forget the busy city life as we enter a world of serenity along the spectacular Sea to Sky Highway. A 2 hour drive North will put us at the trailhead to Wedgemount Lake where food for the day will be distribute throughout the group.
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? The rock flour in glacial water will leave you with very smooth skin. Here we will relax, and eat our nutritious lunches to reenergize for the rest of the days fun. Here you will be given the option to explore the vast area on your own or to follow your guides to a glacier and an ice cave. After regrouping, we will retrace our steps on the return journey and make our way back to downtown Vancouver.
