The joyride to the icefield will undoubtedly be one of the most scenic drives of your life as you whiz past countless waterfalls, towering peaks, and age-old glaciers.
Upon arrival, your guides will lead you on a thrilling hike of Wilcox Pass. Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for wildlife today, including mountain goats, bighorn sheep, and an array of other friendly critters during the hike.

A secret "guide’s favourite" hike and Helen Lake are some epic options on the table today, to name just a few! With the sweet aroma of wildflowers in bloom, hike to a breezy ridge where you’ll discover incredible lake views. For something a little different today, why not experience the beauty of the area on horseback with an optional 2-3 hour ride (for an extra charge).
Back at camp this evening, you can unwind after a day filled with adventure, kicking back to enjoy another night in the mountains beneath the stars.
