Transfer to your hotel in Calgary. Tonight a group briefing to go over the details of the trek.
Your guide will meet you at the hotel after breakfast, after which we’ll head out towards Waterton. At Waterton, we will take a lunch break and then head out for a beautiful hike towards Summit Lake. After a series of switchbacks, gorgeous mountain views are our reward as we glimpse the multitude of peaks that unfold before us. We will descend in time for a late snack before dinner together at the hotel. 5 mile hike.
The first 2.5 miles of this trail is an easy stroll that will warm our legs up for the switchbacks to come. The 5.5 miles will gain a lot of elevation, but we have time to take it at our rhythm and enjoy the amazing views as we gain elevation. Mountain goats are a common sight along that trail and the lake is brimming with Cutthroat Trout. 8 mile hike
Today's the day for true fun and adventure- and it all starts with a boat ride across Waterton Lake by boat to reach the start of the trail to Crypt Lake. The trail climbs from the shoreline through montane forest towards Hellroaring Creek Valley. Here's where the fun really starts: we pass past several waterfalls and climb a ladder up and into an 80 foot long tunnel, which we must crawl through! Our goal is the beautiful Crypt Lake which lies at 6,400ft and straddles the US-Canadian border. Here we can technically walk in and out of the US before descending back down to Waterton. Tonight we celebrate a day of diverse fun and accomplishment with a farewell dinner. 10.5 mile hike.
After breakfast our trip concludes with transfers to Calgary. Your flight must be after 2pm for domestic flights,
and after 3pm for international flights.
