Awesome sceneries, beautiful trek routes at every stop, five-star campsites!

Reviewed December 2012

The scenery is amazing on this trip! Beautiful mountains and lakes everywhere and different difficulties of trek routes at every stop. There's always something to do, or just laze around in the peaceful campsites. Some wild animals spotted but not as aplenty as Alaska, still amazingly friendly squirrels, deers and elks are easily spotted. The optionals are little bit pricier and some are just not worth to do at all.

Absolutely epic trip, unforgettable impressions

Reviewed December 2012

If you are interested in nature, wildlife, camping and hiking, this is definitely the best trip that you can choose. The landscape was absolutely fantastic with its amazing blue lakes, huge forrests and ice covered mountains. Although we did not see any wolves, we could hear them every night, which was an nicredible experience itself. Besides deer, elk, beaver, porcupine and different kinds of birds we have also seen a black bear eating some berries. The camp grounds are huge and perfectly located with good restrooms.

Summing up it was absolutely epic and I would do it definitely again.

Fan-flippin-tastic!

Reviewed December 2012

I had always wanted to go to Canada, and this tour sounded like a nice taster of what it has to offer. And it certainly didn't disappoint! The Rockies are absolutely incredible- everywhere you look there's amazing scenery, and the people are so friendly. The Icefields trip was amazing, and we loved Banff and its hot springs. Lake Louise is stunning, the hike there was beautiful. (It helps to be fit on this trip though, you get a proper work-out!!) The canoeing across Clearwater Lake was fun, and it was someone's birthday too. The night-time canoeing was something I'd never done before, and that was cool. Then camping on the edge of the lake was exciting. Vancouver at the end was brilliant, such a vibrant city.
Our tour leader was briliant, so laid-back and told us the best places to go and things to do. And our group was fab too!
I highly recommend this tour, especially if you are like I was and hadn't travelled very much before. It's just the right length of time and I didn't bankrupt myself completely!!
The only downside is you will get bitten by the travel bug, and then want to travel EVERYWHERE, especially when you meet so many different people with so many different stories! :D

Like a gym and a dating agency in one (in a good way)

Even though the nights were flipping freezing, the mosquitoes at Beaverfoot Lodge ate us to pieces and we had to buy our own beers, the Mountie trek was incredible. We got a hell of a workout walking up mountains and biking around forests, we ate our body weight in toasted marshmallows (well I did) and we spotted a bear on day two, who paraded around for us like it was Canada's Next Top Model. We even had a romance on the trip, which I can personally tell you is still going on now, back home in England/Holland. Will we be witnessing the first Trek America wedding?

I had an amazing time, met fantastic people and got incredible thighs from all the trekking. What more can you ask for?

Ultimate Eye Candy Overload

Reviewed November 2012

It was epic. Every day was that little bit extraordinary, there was a gem hidden in each and every one. Even the longest driving day was great as it drove through some spectacular places.

If you love the outdoors this is the trip for you.
