I'm visiting the starting and ending points of the Chilkoot trail this week and remembering my 5-day hike several years ago. For scenic beauty and historic Gold Rush charm, it would be hard to beat this trail in the US. It's a challenging hike because...More

This is a lovely trek through the rainforest followed by a river raft return. The trek is not difficult but requires some level of dexterity on sometimes tricky footing. We didn't see bears but there was plenty of evidence they were nearby. 2km trek seems...More

The hike starts off a little steep here and there but overall this is fairly an easy hike. I would recommend borrowing a hiking stick when your guide offers one. The ride back down the river is a nice, relaxing end to the whole excursion....More
