Exploring Revelstoke On Foot

Although Revelstoke, British Columbia is better known for its world-class skiing and snow cat boarding opportunities, there are plenty of ways to experience the mountain heights on foot as well. Hiking and climbing are two very popular activities in Revelstoke during the summer months, as the terrain is quite spectacular. With many of the mountains in the area topping 10,000 feet, you have the opportunity to hike glaciers, visit remote wilderness and climb some seriously steep pitches. The views that the mountains of Revelstoke offer are truly something to experience. A description in words does not do true justice to the alpine beauty to be had.

The immense splendor of our world is made staggeringly clearer when you set foot on what seems like the roof of the world. With the vast Canadian Rockies, as well as the Selkirk and Monashee ranges, spreading out in all directions, we are reminded of the true size of our world. Imagine all the wonders that it holds. Revelstoke offers many ways for nature admirers to experience these wonder. There are very simple day hikes in the Mount Revelstoke and Glacier National Parks that give you access to all the sights, but at a level more appropriate for the whole family to enjoy. For the more adventurous, there are also professionally guided tours to all corners of the region. For those that want to experience high alpine remoteness, but can't make the trip up the mountain on foot, there are also many operators offering helicopter skiing tours for hiking and picnics.

Their exclusively small-group tours fill up fast; so if you want some of the best heliskiing in the world, book soon.
