Lodge-Based Hiking Trips

Surrounded by the rugged peaks of the Canadian Rockies, Icefall Lodge is the perfect base for trekking in wilderness solitude. Although Icefall Lodge’s 200 sq km tenure shares a border with Banff National Park, it is far from the crowded hiking trails of Lake Louise and Banff.

With over 100 species of flowers, you’ll be 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, vast icefields and waterfalls form the backdrop to all the hikes. There are over 30 glaciers around Icefall Lodge, and our ever-expanding network of trails provides access to some of the most scenic viewpoints in the Rockies.

Guided Hiking

Allow our expert guides to handle the route planning while you fully immerse yourself in the pristine environment surrounding Icefall Lodge. Our guided hikes meander through alpine meadows, wind up and around glacial moraines, pass by majestic waterfalls and glaciers, and traverse ridges leading to truly awe-inspiring viewpoints.

Leave the logistics to us as you embrace the beauty and serenity of the backcountry wilderness.

Self-Guided Hiking

Icefall Lodge's extensive network trails awaits your exploration. Many of these trails, particularly those near the lodge, are easily navigable. Ideal for adventurers seeking flexibility and autonomy in their itinerary, a self-guided trip offers the freedom to set your own pace amidst the breathtaking wilderness.

Included in the self-guided hiking package are helicopter transportation and delectable meals prepared by our lodge chef.

For those uncertain about navigating the mountain terrain independently or prefer the camaraderie of a guided experience, we recommend considering one of our guided trips.
