Many of the best hikes don’t follow a trail, but wander through alpine meadows and glacial moraines.
Our guides are knowledgeable about the area, local plants, wildlife and geology. Let a guide take you around the hidden gems of this pristine area.
The hut-to-hut hiking trip is our version of an Alps inspired traverse-style hike. This trip can be done as a 3- or 4-night trip linking the Rostrum Cabin, Icefall Lodge and the newly built Kirwan Cabin.
Enjoy hiking through alpine meadows, stunning viewpoints, and cascading waterfalls while you make your way to one of our comfortable cabins for the night.
With over 15 years of trail work and continuous improvements, there is a large network of maintained trails at Icefall. Most of the trails, especially those closer to the lodge, are well marked and easy to follow.
A self-guided trip is a great option for those looking to explore at their own pace or have a flexible itinerary.
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.We offer guided and self-guided lodge-based hiking trips where guests return to Icefall Lodge every evening.
We also offer a non-technical hut-to hut hiking trip between the Rostrum Cabin, Icefall Lodge and the newly built Kirwan Cabin.
The Rostrum and the Kirwan cabins are comfortable cabins with dorm-style sleeping arrangements for up to 10 people. The cabins are equipped with functional kitchens, sunny decks and indoor pee-toilets.
Icefall Lodge itself consists of 2 buildings and a sauna with a change room and two shower stalls. The new lodge built in 2008 is a bright, three-story building with log posts and much of the lumber used in its construction was milled on site. It has 4 bedrooms on the upper floor, kitchen and dining on the main floor and a large mudroom and drying room on the ground floor.
The original lodge built in 2005, affectionately called “the old lodge”, provides an additional 5 bedrooms and a cozy living room. Icefall Lodge can comfortably accommodate 18 guests in the 9 bedrooms, some of which have double beds and others, single beds. Both buildings have mind-blowing mountain and glacier views, wood stoves and indoor pee toilets.
