This sublime backpacking tour encapsulates much of the unique ambiance of the southern Canadian Rockies. Why is this? Perhaps it's the representative landscapes and the way they are revealed to us as we crest each pass and enter each valley: Primeval forests, flower-strewn meadows, turquoise lakes reflecting rugged peaks and glaciers with the occasional added glimpses of wildlife.
Walking is never boring in this wonderland with unbelievable flowers in July and August to be followed in September by the blazing fall colors of the larches which punctuate and define the alpine meadows.
With its mostly moderate distances and opportunities for ridge hiking The Rockwall Highline can be a great first time backpacking experience in the Canadian Rockies, not only is there exquisite scenery but you will also be sharing the trail with like-minded people from around the globe. However we calculate, it all adds up to an active and exhilarating mountain holiday!
