Heysen Trail and The Flinders Ranges

The trip was absolutely fantastic and we wish it didnít have to end. The walking was fabulous and the areas we visited were all so interesting and beautiful. There is nothing we would have wanted to do differently.
The guides were outstanding and helped make the trip a truly memorable one. We couldnít have asked for any better guides!

Women's High Trails of the Canadian Rockies

Our Womenís Adventures have been selected to offer you the opportunity to engage in active travel experiences in a safe, supportive and encouraging environment. The stunning peaks, glaciers and high passes of the Canadian Rockies are best appreciated on foot. This adventure packs in the highlights of the area's best parks, including an exhilarating heli-hike at the base of Mt Assiniboine, the "Matterhorn" of the Canadian Rockies. Waterton Lakes National Park with its red rock canyons and deep blue lakes is the perfect backdrop for our first hike. We make our way north through Kananaskis country to the town of Banff. For the next 2 days, we enjoy alpine hikes in Banff National Park, across scenic mountain passes, surrounded by alpine lakes and meadows. Back on the road, along the famous Columbia Icefields Parkway, we stop and hike to Wilcox Pass for sweeping views of the Columbia Icefield. In Lake Louise, we choose from a treasure trove of great hikes with awesome views over Moraine Lake and the Valley of the Ten Peaks. Finally we helicopter into the base of Mt Assiniboine, and undertake a unique heli hike into a remote area where we camp for 2 nights and spend the days enjoying high alpine hikes (up to 2635m) with panoramic views stretching from dramatic Mt Assiniboine to Kootenay National Park. We hope you can join this fantastic Women's Adventure in the Canadian Rockies.
