Hiking through the mountains of British Columbia is a dream for anybody who loves nature. And in the Kootenay area of the province, the Columbia mountains are absolutely stunning. They are the perfect place for this 4 day hiking adventure.

While there is a sample itinerary for this trip below, it is by no means concrete. Instead, we are happy to tailor the trip to your own abilities and desires. So if you only have a little hiking experience, there is no need to worry because there are several routes in Kootenay you can enjoy. Some examples of the easier areas include Fly Creek Canyon, Pilot Bay Canyon, Slocan Lakeshore and Beatrice Lake.

And if you are an experienced hiker looking for a great hike, you too will have your pick of routes that will give you what you want. Some examples of the more intermediate areas include Kokanee Glacier, Glory Basin, Lucifer Pass, Monica meadows, Marten mountain, Whitewater canyon, and many more.

Finally, for those hikers looking for a real challenge, we also offer several difficult, high alpine options. Those options include Gimli Ridge, Lyle Basin, Mount Brennan, Mount Loki, Heart Lakes, and many more.

Whatever kind of hiking adventure you want to enjoy in the Kootenay area, there is a great option for you. And it would be our pleasure to guide you every step of the way. So send us a request, and enjoy the gorgeous wilderness of British Columbia, Canada.

Would you like to transition from indoor rock climbing to outdoor rock climbing? If so, we also offer a full day course in the Kootenay area that will help you do just that.
