Lake Lovely Water is…Lovely

Nature lovers, behold your next trip! Lake Lovely Water is a lovely lake (sorry, could NOT resist) near Whistler, British Columbia. Some people consider it one of the best-kept secrets in the province, and they’re probably not all that far off.  On the other hand, it’s not going to stay a secret for long.

The trail begins on the west side of the Squamish River, and there is no road access to the trailhead so you’ll have to take a boat across the river (let the adventure begin!). You can do so by making reservations with a boat operator beforehand.

The trail can be steep and rough at times, but once you get to the campgrounds, you’ll be glad you did it. Plus the whole area is surrounded by jaw-dropping natural beauty. You’ll see numerous big peaks and ridges like Mount Omega, Mount Niobe, Mount Pelops, and Iota Mountain.

Just a note – when we say the trail can be rough at times, we mean REALLY rough…and really steep. If you’re not an experienced hiker, you might want to hire a guide to help you out. No epic photo is worth your life (or limbs).

Ben Giesbrecht is the handsome outdoorsmen who created this video with his friends. And by the way, you should probably follow him on Vimeo – I feel that he’s up and coming. This video is so Canadian it hurts. You’ve got men chopping down trees, epic campfire sessions (with booze, obviously), and gorgeous shots of incredibly remote landscapes. I grew up on the east coast and although it’s beautiful here as well, I can’t help but be a little jealous.

If you’re interested in a British Columbia adventure tour of your own, you can hire a guide to take you hiking trekking in British Columbia. Or if that doesn’t tickle your fancy, there are plenty of options for mountain biking, rafting, zip-lining, and more.
