*NEW* Hike the Northern Purcells
This backpacking adventure starts with a 15 minute helicopter flight to Purcell Mountain Lodge from Golden, BC. This multi day, self-supported backpacking trip will focus on alpine travel in the Northern Purcell Mountains. Secluded alpine lakes, gentle ridge walks, glacier views and abundant wildflowers are some of the highlights. Some challenging terrain will be managed expertly by the guides who will plan a bespoke route based on conditions and group priorities. For those who wish to carry a little less, there is the option to hire porters to share the load at an additional cost.
After 8 nights out in the mountains, a sauna and shower at Purcell Mountain Lodge with a soft bed make a great way to cap off the trip!
