A Garibaldi Lake Guided Hike

This Garibaldi Lake guided hiking tour is one of our favorites! Particularly because of the view at Garibaldi Lake with its iridescent blue water, surrounded by snow-capped mountains. It makes for exquisite photo ops! You can try to swim there too, but don’t be surprised if you go it alone, it’s COLD!!! 

We take in the gorgeous views of scenic Mt. Garibaldi at a 2678-meter elevation and those of Black Tusk. Food shelters are present for respite from rain or colder conditions while enjoying your well-deserved packed lunch. We will stop at a lookout of the Sea-to-Sky Valley, where gangs of chipmunks will beg for your attention.

This is the perfect day tour for those wishing to escape the bustle of modern life and encounter the wild landscapes of British Columbia.

(Looking for a customized private experience? Head to our Private and Custom BC Tours to explore. From our base camp, you could choose to hike Black Tusk or Panorama Ridge alongside your time on Mt. Garibaldi. Whatever you want to do, we will organize it for you.)
