An exclusive Canadian Rockies hiking experience, without the crowdsProvided by White Mountain Adventures

Hidden behind the Lake Louise Ski Resort & Summer Gondola, the Skoki Backcountry is normally only accessible by first hiking a 9km return fire road. Skip the fire road with our exclusive van shuttle to the edge of the ski area boundary, to start our hike in the pristine wilderness of the Skoki backcountry. Hike with us as we travel through pristine forests, along clear mountain creeks and fields of mountain wildflowers to reach turquoise high alpine lakes nestled among the towering glacier-clad peaks of the Canadian Rockies. See details below.
