Hike Lush Alpine Meadows
Away From the Crowds

Tumbling, blue glaciers and vast icefields form the backdrop to all Icefall hikes

Summer at Icefall Lodge

Situated at treeline, Icefall Lodge is the perfect base for incredible hiking trips in the Canadian Rockies. Lush alpine meadows start right outside the door, and the seracs and tumbling icefalls of nearby glaciers gave the valley its name. A well-maintained network of trails gives easy access to some of the most scenic viewpoints in the area. Enjoy guided or self-guided hiking trips among some of the highest peaks in the Canadian Rockies.

Most guided and self-guided hiking trips are based at Icefall Lodge, with day trips returning to the lodge every night. For the more adventurous, there is a non-technical hut-to hut-hiking trip between the Rostrum Cabin, Waterfall Cabin and Icefall Lodge. The Rostrum Cabin and the Waterfall Cabin offer comfortable accommodations and are equipped with a wood-fired sauna, a large sunny deck, and an indoor pee toilet.

For the mountaineers, there is the multi-day Icefall Traverse that links up two high-elevation huts. The Lyell Hut is perched on a rock outcrop at 2860m, and the Mons Hut sits at the toe of the Mons Glacier. While this is a mountaineering trip with glacier travel, strong hikers with no previous mountaineering experience can do this trip with a guide.

The lodge itself consists of two main buildings and a sauna with two separate shower stalls. The new lodge is a bright, three-story building with log posts, and much of the lumber was milled on site. The original lodge provides additional bedrooms and a second living room. Icefall lodge can comfortably accommodate 18 guests in 9 bedrooms with double or single beds. Each building has sweeping glacier views out the front window, a wood stove and satellite internet access
