Glacier Wilderness Hiking Tour British Columbia begins with a float plane ride over the pristine wilderness from Nimpo Lake to your eco-lodge in the heart of the Coast Mountains. The lake, point of entry, is an area designated as the Floatplane Capital of British Columbia. The site is a primary take-off point for aerial tours and fishing fly-ins to the mountainous landscapes of Chilcotin and its surroundings.

An area of unspoilt natural beauty, the wilderness of Chilcotin is so extensive that they seem to go on forever. And the wild landscape is dominated by high rugged mountains, pineland forests, alpine backcountry, and glistering lakes, streams, and rivers. Wilderness vacations here take travelers on hiking expeditions through picturesque landscape. Wildlife viewing and nature photography opportunities are favored on the Glacier Wilderness Hiking Tour British Columbia. Some untamed species that roam the wilds here include black bears, grizzlies, caribou, moose, mountain goats, and deer. Glacier Wilderness Hiking Tour British Columbia explores the parts less traveled by humans and more so the scenic and protected areas.

At the log cabin property, you’ll be staying at a high altitude overlooking a lake. Built using local materials and designed to be in sync with the wilderness environs, the structures of the cabins were constructed by a naturalist and retain a pastoral flair. You’ll be off-the grid at this situate. Here is neither cellphone range nor TV. There is, however internet, showers, outdoor hot tub, electricity and lights in all the cabins. The lodge uses solar and wind power and filtered lake water for use.

On the Glacier Wilderness Hiking Tour British Columbia, you’ll hike and canoe the loops that traverse through the mountains and wilderness areas. These sites include Angelhart Lake loop, North Pass Lake, Mummeries Loop, Mid Pyramid of Flat Top Mountain, Wilderness Valley, and Nuk Tessli Lake. See the hiking maps.

In addition to staying at the log cabin resort, camping is included in the Glacier Wilderness Hiking Tour British Columbia excursion. Trekking the ice glacier mountains, in our opinion, add an extra element of intrigue to this 7-days holiday experience in the wilderness.
