Garibaldi Lake Hike and Photography Tour

Select Date and Travellers

    What to Expect

    We'll spend a whole day hiking up to and exploring Garibaldi Lake, one of the most scenic destinations in British Columbia. Located an hour from Vancouver, the tour is a picture-perfect way to experience Canada’s alpine nature, while learning the basics of landscape photography. Garibaldi Lake is very popular but also a very difficult hike. It's an 8 hour, 18km return, and 820 meters elevation hike. You need to be an experienced hiker and in very good physical condition. Details on what to wear and bring along for the tour will be provided, along with follow up questions testing your skill level.

    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 Garibaldi Lake, 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.

    Nash was a great guide and photographer. Super attentive and tailored his advice and tips individually to different members of the group depending on their experience. Lake Garibaldi is truly stunning and well worth the hike. Lynn Canyon was also beautiful.
