Backcountry Hiking Adventure
Join our interpretive guides for daily guided alpine hikes, interpretive nature walks, helicopter hiking, trekking experience or design a custom trip. You could spot mountain goats, picas or perhaps see sign of a bear’s last meal at Idaho Peak. Savour the scent of sub alpine fir at Kokanee Glacier Provincial Park or wander upon a forest orchid approaching Jumbo Pass.

Each day your guide chooses from different wilderness settings with unique interpretive stories and different levels of physical challenge. At Summit Mountain Guides we thrive on designing hiking programs that meet individual’s goals and interests.
