Surrounded by the rugged peaks of the Canadian Rockies, Icefall Lodge is the perfect base for trekking in wilderness solitude. Although the lodge shares a border with Banff National Park, it is far from the crowded hiking trails of Lake Louise and Banff. With over 200 square km of wilderness, Icefall Lodge is far from any towns, roads or signs of civilization. While this is more than can be explored in a week, it does ensure plenty of options and no crowds.
With over 100 species of flowers, you are walking through a brightly coloured carpet. The mountains are some of the highest in the Canadian Rockies. These include Mount Forbes, the highest peak in Banff National Park. Tumbling, blue glaciers and vast icefields form the backdrop to all the hikes. There are over 30 glaciers at Icefall, and the well-maintained network of trails gives easy access to some of the most scenic viewpoints in the area.
