Trip Info

You do not want to miss this trip! We’ll follow in the footsteps of famous explorer David Thompson as we take a trail that parallels the North Saskatchewan River, then follows the trail towards Howse Pass. Along the way, we’ll cross some bridges and enjoy views of the Howse River, and as we near Glacier Lake we’ll enjoy views of the Lyell Icefield ahead. This is an awesome trip that should be exciting and interesting, from an historical, geological and photographic perspective!
