Trip highlights

Imagine yourself walking amidst sweeping meadows of multicolour wildflowers, through lush forests, fairy-tale mountain peaks, and crystal lakes. Well-rested, well fed, in great company, carrying only your personal items in your pack. This is the promise of our heavenly Hut to Hut trail adventure in BC’s Wells Gray Provincial Park - a pristine, protected wilderness of 1.4 million acres (540,000 hectares). Led by an experienced guide, spend your nights in exclusive alpine cabins, with fully equipped kitchens and comfortable bedding. And your days, well, those belong to the region’s extraordinary natural attractions; the exploding colours of spring’s avalanche lilies, marsh marigolds, arnica and valerian; Mid-season’s rare mountain avens, violet lupine, and golden senecio. Inhale the fragrant heathers and rein orchids as they sprout in August, before the landscape transforms into the rich yellow, gold and red hues of September. Isolated within these secluded Cariboo Mountains, you may encounter some of the shy creatures that call it home - woodland caribou, grizzly bears, martins, marmots, mountain goats, pikas, and timber wolves, to name a few. Leave the tough stuff to us. Small-group hiking along the unforgettable wildflower trails through BC’s alpine wilderness has never been easier.

Itinerary

Make your way to our joining hotel in the town of Clearwater, the gateway to Wells Gray Provincial Park.

Meals:  Nil

After breakfast, our private vehicle shuttles the group to the trailhead at 1630m. The trail quickly enters mature forest and ascends into lush meadows of alpine flowers. Enjoy majestic mountain beauty all the way to Trophy Mountain Chalet (2153m.) With stunning views, our chalet offers easy hikes to small peaks, lakes, and flower meadows. The hike from the road gains 523m in elevation over 4km. After lunch, your guide leads an afternoon hike that introduces the vistas of the Trophy Mountains.

Meals:  B,L,D

Lace-up for a full day hike in the spectacular Trophy Mountains, summiting several peaks while rejuvenating with soaks in alpine lakes along the way. The views are staggering, permeated by a sense of wilderness, escape and freedom. The choice is yours to take a relaxed, longer lunch, or join the group for a hike to the top of Ptarmigan Peak.

Meals:  B,L,D

Experience the wild in wilderness today, and as we hike along unmarked trails, and appreciate the skills of your experienced mountain guide. After a couple of hours above the alpine tree line, we descend into the virgin forest for a delicious lunch at the Valley of the Lakes. Suitably refreshed, we re-enter alpine meadows until crossing Eagle Pass at 2061m, followed by a 45-minute, gentle downhill stroll through the glades to our isolated valley cabin.

Meals:  B,L,D

Choose to spend a relaxing day breathing in the remote mountain wilderness surrounding Discovery Cabin, or join the group for a 6km day hike to nearby alpine ridges and tranquil, sparkling lakes.

Meals:  B,L,D

After a hearty breakfast, we head north up and over Table Mountain. A well-marked trail leads us through some of the most striking flower meadows on the continent. From the ridge, we descend through virgin forest to the Philip Lakes, followed by a three-hour downhill stroll to the top of a small dirt track, where our shuttle awaits. On the return drive to Clearwater, we’ll stop to enjoy some of the world-famous waterfalls of Wells Gray Park. * Note: Accommodation is not included tonight, so please ask your reservations consultant for assistance if you’d like to book a hotel. We usually reach the trailhead by early to mid-afternoon, but since we’ll be hiking in remote wilderness, we normally recommend staying in the area this evening. If you absolutely must return by a certain time, please discuss this with your reservation agent.
