This Canadian Rockies trail is a world-class trek. With the third day hiked above tree-line, you will not believe the views. Ranking top 10 in Canada, the Iceline is Yoho's most scenic trail. The high elevation allows for 360 degree views that extend over the entire Yoho Valley, encompassing hanging glaciers, windswept ridges, and the chance to spot wildlife in the distance.

Itinerary and Gear

Planned Itinerary

  • Day 1:
    Today is for the pre-trip meeting only. Our meeting will take place in person at 7pm in Canmore. Location TBD. We will make sure everyone has everything they need, introduce the group, laugh lots, and distribute the group gear. Virtual attendance is also an option.
  • Day 2:
    Our first day is a tour of 5 waterfalls! After setting up a car shuttle we will arrive at the parking with an immediate spectacular view of Takakkaw Falls, the second tallest waterfall in Canada, rising over 350m in the air. From here we’ll follow our trail through pockets of temperate rainforest, enjoying breaks at Laughing Falls, Point of Lace Falls and Angel’s Staircase Falls. Tonight’s camp is near the base of our final waterfall of the day, Twin Falls. The roar of the river will be our backdrop and lull us to sleep after a well-deserved gourmet meal – 7.2km 150m.
  • Day 3:
    Day 2 - We are quickly rewarded with up close views of Twin Falls. These falls are unique with two channels of rushing water that fall side by side before crashing into the river below. Continuing upwards, the trail gets steeper as we hike around to the top of the falls. Reaching the height fo our day we cross an exhilarating suspension bridge and take in 360-degree views of glaciers and alpine peaks before dropping down to the valley floor and our campsite at Little Yoho Campground. After another delicious meal, we’ll drift to sleep in anticipation for our next day of outstanding alpine scenery - 10.4km 745m.
  • Day 4:
    Try to contain your excitement as we break camp. Today we explore the iconic Iceline trail. Starting off with a series of switchbacks we spend the day high in the alpine hiking past hanging glaciers, turquoise lakes, and spectacular views of the valley below. The beauty and excitement will keep you going as we make our way to spectacular Yoho Lake. Sit back in the red Parks Canada chairs and soak in the view - 10.3 km, 293m.
  • Day 5:
    Wake up and enjoy the serenity around the calm turquoise lake. After a delcious breakfast we'll pack up our gear and lace up our hiking boots. Our route will take us past another waterfall and we'll follow the shores of the famous Emerald Lake. Once back to our cars we'll celebrate a spectacular trip before parting our ways - 7km, 66m
