Large glaciated terrain surrounds Joffre Lakes and makes for some of the best ski touring on the Duffey. Many people approach from the road and do day objectives with light packs while others prefer to camp near the lakes for the weekend or get dropped by a heli early in the morning to ski tour the high country before skiing...

Banff and Jasper (Canadiab Rockies) are known for their beauty, but there are mountains and lakes just as beautiful near Penticton, in a short drive from Vancouver.

It was bloody cold when we first got there, but after you start moving and get the blood pumping it's fine. There are so many spots to get some great pictures! The climb is medium level difficulty and certainly with a few breaks, you can make it no problem. If it's going to be an overcast day, pack extra clothes!... More

This has got to be one of the most beautiful provincial Parks anywhere in Canada. They only trouble I see is that it is becoming way too popular with the crowds of people that drive up here from Vancouver and the Fraser Valley during the summertime. There is often no place to park in the lot and vehicles lined up... More

We went to 2 of the 3 lakes because of lack of time. It was very though but all worth the efforts. The surroundings and views are the most beautifull we ever saw. The incredible turquoise colored lakes (especially Middle Lake !) are amazing. Definite a must see and do. You may not miss this place !

We only visited the lower lake as we were travelling from Whistler to Kamloops and had already stopped off at a couple of places. Easy path down to the lake and stunning views right from the end of the path. Not to be missed

This was a beautiful fall hike. A moderate hike, level, well groomed trails up to the first two lakes. Aqua colored water, and tonnes of whisky jack birds at second lake which land on your hand, so bring bread or crackers. There is an outhouse at second lake (it was horrible, only use if absolutely necessary!), the hike from second... More

We only visited the lower lake but really wish we had more time to trek up to the middle and upper lakes. It is another beautiful lake, but well worth stopping off to see.

I used to live in BC but am in town visiting from Cleveland, Ohio. I wanted to do a beautiful hike and this was it! My two friends and I had an amazing time! Some of it was a bit challenging, and I am pretty active but totally doable. The views are amazing and the scenery is incredible! Weather was... More
