Day 1: Vancouver to Greendrop Lake, 6km

Jump On In! Lets meet and greet your new adventure friends at our meeting spot in downtown Vancouver. On the 2-hour drive to Fraser Valley you will notice a big transition from the agricultural flat lands to the mountainous terrain that you will call your home for the next two days. Once we arrive at the trailhead, we complete the gear check, divide all the food evenly amongst the group, orientate ourselves with our new adventure playground and get going.

 

The trail to Greendrop Lake is very diverse. Under a thick forest canopy we will use wooden bridges to cross a crystal clear creek, walk along the shore of Lindeman Lake, and over boulder fields to reach our final destination. At Greendrop lake we will set up camp and make ourselves at home in this peaceful natural environment.

 

Day 2: Greendrop Lake to Vancouver, 6km

Wake up to the smell of coffee hovering over camp. You can jump in the lake to wake up real quick if you wish. We will see three lakes today as we will hike from Lindeman Lake to Greendrop Lake and then back down to make our way to Chilliwack Lake before we’re heading back to Vancouver. Here we will put up our legs and enjoy the view of the mountains the lake is surrounded by.

    If you wish to get right back to the basics of camping/nature, this is the company to book! While being respectful to the ecosystem Sanne and Richie maintained an exciting and safe adventure. They are extremely thorough, knowledgeable and their passion is easy to absorb. Oh and the food was fantastic. Healthy, clean, homemade and there was chocolate! A definite recommendation.
