    Nothing says summer like a backpacking hike in the wilderness, and near Nelson there’s plenty to explore. The beautiful British Columbia outdoors are a perfect spot for indulging in nature. Of course, backcountry spots and remote locations need to be found. On this 3-day backpacking hike near Nelson, I would like to show you where they are.

    You will have many different options to choose from, depending on level and preference. I will point you to the perfect spot whether you are a beginner, intermediate or advanced hiker. Whether its an easy hike to Fry Creek Canyon, a slightly more challenging trip to Gwilliam Lakes or an adventure to Mount Loki we will find the perfect spot for you. These are just a few of our options. And, no matter the level of difficulty, all the places we can show you are bountiful in natural beauty!

    Keep in mind that although we will tailor the backpacking tour to suit your level, you will need a good fitness level. As we will be hiking with backpacks, we will be carrying some extra weight which can be a bit more challenging. In any case I will also show you some backpacking basics, how to distribute weight for example. And, at all times I will be there to assist and guide you on the way.

    If you’re looking for a fun summer excursion in the Canadian wilderness then you should try this 3-day backpacking hike near Nelson. Book your place now and join me, I will be happy to show you the way!

    Another option is to try one of our summer rock climbing excursions in the Rockies!
