    Wow and amazing!

    This was an amazing trek- definitely worth paying every penny. I did things that was totally out of my comfort zone- highly recommend the White Water Rafting. I hated the Jasper National Park hostel as it was sharing with other travellers a...nd the bed was too small. I saw the beautiful sights of the national parks and there were lots of scenery to admire particularly when visiting Wells Grey National Park. Definitely recommend the whole trek- it is something you will never forget! Read full review

    An active, challenging yet fun experience. Unforgettable.

    Initially when booking this trip, I was excited for the spectacular scenery I knew I was going to see, and the overall itinerary that the trip notes detailed. Little did I know I was in for so much more. From zip lining through the tree...s in Whistler, white water rafting, and climbing to amazing heights on glacier walks and mountain hikes, this trip did not disappoint. I'm not much of a "risk taker", but with the encouragement of my enthusiastic tour leader, and my fellow tour trekers and new found friends, I was pushes to my limits and loved every second. We had a variety of ages on this tour, and every single person embraced the experiences. It was nice to also have some "down time" to bring the pace down a bit and explore the beautiful towns of Jasper and Banff, now two of my favourite places in the world. The Canadian BLT tour is one that I would highly recommend. With the scenery and activities, you can't go wrong! Read full review

    An epic road trip with new best friends

    This trip was fantastic fun. The first few days were super packed of awesome activities, and helped bond us as a group. The pace then slowed down a bit as we really began taking stock of the wonderful scenery in Jasper and Banff. Our tour l...eader Nick went above and beyond what was needed, with local tips, his flexibility and general awesomeness. The places we stayed at were great for hostel standards. I'd recommend this for anyone who wants to see the full glory of the Rockies, with the added fun of adventure activities, socialising and ease of not having to organise accommodation and transport.

    Fantastic company, beautiful scenery and non-stop.

    Scenery - no doubt the most astonishing scenery I have ever seen in a beautiful and BIG part of the world. If you want to see amazing lakes, mountains and forests then this part of the country is for you. There was also a small amount of ti...me in Seattle and Vancouver, two great cities, and smaller towns like Whistler and Jasper. Trek leader - we were very blessed to have had a fantastic leader on this, our first trek. Katelin Erickson was fun, informative, organised, calm and enthusiastic. I can think of no bad points against her. From what I hear of other treks, the calibre of leaders can be variable, though mostly very good. I can't imagine anyone being better than Katelin. She had great fun with us, showed us all the options as what to do and encouraged us to stretch ourselves where best suited. She did masses of research and our diversion via a local rodeo fair was a tour highlight. She was energetic and very responsible with all aspects, e.g. driving and getting enough rest etc. She also cooks a cracking dinner! Other trekkers - no doubt what really made the holiday was having other similar minded (in some ways, not all!) people. It was brilliant to get to know everyone, we have already had a get together reunion and are planning the next and I'm sure will remain firm friends. Some times are a little tough and having new friends there is the best way of getting through that. Accomodation - our trek was mostly hostels and these varied in quality but we look back fondly on some of the not so good places (as an experience). A couple were really good. I've personally never stayed in hostels before and found it good fun. The tour was pretty much non-stop, I don't think you could actually pack more into two weeks than we did, which is helped by the fact your tour leader drives you around and knows the best places to go. One negative, is you feel like you need another holiday when you get home so definitely schedule time to sleep when you get back! Read full review
