About
Joffre Lakes is one of BC's most beautiful hikes and is relatively easy to access compared to other alpine lakes. Your 12 hour hiking tour is a picture-perfect way to experience Canada’s natural beauty and safely enjoy the outdoors. It includes pickup and drop off from your accommodation and a scenic drive on the Sea to Sky highway to Squamish, Whistler and Pemberton. As a photographer I'll teach you to take amazing photos whether you’re packing the latest DSLR or a camera phone, and capture your memories with my camera at the end of our tour. As a guide with over a dozen years of leading hikes to Joffre Lakes, I'll ensure your experience is safe and enjoyable, and you're properly prepared for the hike. Our small group size will ensure everyone's looked after as I lead from the back. Cost includes pick up and return from downtown Vancouver, guided hike, photography lessons and shoot. All photos taken will be emailed after the tour.

Stunning! Nature at its Best
Absolutely stunning! What an incredible hike to do. Though going in places but so worth it! From the fabulous glacial lakes to the roar of waterfalls you just cannot get better.
Advice would be to start early as the trail gets busier during the day. Bring a light towel as there is nothing like standing in glacial water to revive the feet! But be warned it's freezing!!!

Thanks for the memorable experience!
Sep. 2021
This was by far the highlight of our trip to British Columbia. Nafees is clearly an experienced hiker. He was engaging and very attentive to the group's needs and provided many insightful feedbacks during the hike. Everything went smoothly: the weather was perfect, barely no traffic, the view from the mountain was breathtaking and the other group members were friendly and charming. We were in good hands after all!

Thank you Nafees for this memorable, wonderful experience! :-)

Incredible day! Exceeded expectations!!
Nafees was amazing! Expert hiking guide and amazing photographer. Took us to amazing sites most tourists would skip. Also timed our trek perfectly to get the best lighting for photos and to avoid the tourist lines. So much knowledge and care for his guests. Highly recommend!

I had a fabulous time on my Joffre Lake hike and would highly recommend! Nafees was very knowledgeable and friendly and made sure everyone in the group was managing the trail well. Nafees took some nice photos and videos as well, which he shared the copies for each to have.

Fantastic hiking experience
Jun. 2021
Had a fantastic time on hiking with Nafees and exploring the beautiful Joffre lakes. Knowledgable guide who knows the area well and had funny stories to share. He also brought hiking poles as I requested them, was mindful of the pace, and took great photos to capture the day. Enjoyed the experience so much that I booked another hike.
