Tonquin Valley Trail (46 km/28 miles)
$649 + 5% GST/person
All prices include permits, food, your guide, transportation and group camping equipment.
The Tonquin Valley Trail is a loop trail, filled with spectacular views that have no match and never repeat. One of the most scenic trails in Jasper, you’ll be amazed at every turn!
This trail can be challenging, with mud and mosquitoes, but the reward of watching a sunset over the Rampart Mountains is well worth it!
We generally schedule trips to the Tonquin after the beginning of August to give the mosquitoes a chance to dry down, but we will sometimes go in July as well.
We will start the hike on Edith Cavell Road, with views of the backside of Mount Edith. We will be camping next to Amethyst Lake which is a mystifying experience with some of the most stunning sunsets your guides have ever seen!
If you are extremely lucky you may even see the endangered Woodland Caribou grazing in the meadows. On the final day we will make our way across the beautiful Maccarib Pass. The Hike finishes on Marmot Basin Road, where our shuttle will be meeting us to go back to town.
If you like a real backcountry experience, stunning scenery and the chance to see wildlife choose this adventure!
Personal gear such as backpacks, sleeping bags, and sleeping pads cost an additional $5/day/item.
**We will go with just one person, but if no one else books we charge an additional $100/day
