Canadian Day Hikes Gallery

Drifting through British Columbia and Alberta’s rock-star national parks provides an opportunity to do some of the world’s most satisfying hikes. From a gentle 500m stroll around a scenic lake to multi-day backcountry excursions into territory where crampons and bear spray are non-negotiable – the options appear endless. In our two weeks in Canada’s most mountainous parts, we lost count of our walks in the sub-10km category. The gallery below picks out a few highlights from our longer day hikes, typically between 10 and 15km, with a decent bit of “up”. Four national parks are covered in this gallery:  Banff NP, Jasper NP, Glacier NP and Mount Revelstoke NP. We visited a fifth, the Pacific Rim NP on Vancouver Island. But that’s for a separate gallery at a later date, methinks! Enjoy the mountains.

    Beautiful pics! So pleased you cycled around Stanley Park in Vancouver – it’s my best. Love the Chinese hotel story – can just imagine the scene. Keep the stories and pics coming. Loving hearing all your stories.

    Rock and snow pics are great. I don’t like pine trees so fewer of those please. Enjoying the pithy comments esp about camera equipment!

    What a privilege to see these photos and without having to do the 15 km uphill hikes. (I envy you!)
