The Sea to Sky Corridor of British Columbia is known as the recreational capital of Canada. There is a huge amount of hiking potential in the Sea to Sky area, and some of the best multi-day treks are in the Pemberton area, just north of Whistler.
The Pemberton backcountry trek takes us deep into the wilderness surrounding this small mountain town. The peaks surrounding Pemberton are covered in glaciers and surrounded by alpine meadows and crystal clear lakes. This area is a hikers paradise! For more treks near Pemberton, check out our other Sea to Sky Treks.
The route varies depending on the time of year and snow level. There will be opportunities to do day hikes from camp, but the majority of time we will be hiking with all our gear to get deeper into the wilderness for more spectacular views! We have opportunities to climb a few optional peaks along the way, all over 2,000m and involving some scrambling on rock.
Please note: prices shown below are for public trips, meaning other guests may be on the same trip. This trip will only run once 3 or more guests are booked for the selected date.

The night before the trip departs, we will meet at a Vancouver location TBD for a pre-trip meeting and gear discussion.
Every effort will be made to keep to the above itinerary, but as this is adventure travel in a remote mountain region, we cannot guarantee that we will stick to this plan. Weather conditions and the health of participants can all contribute to changes. The trip leader/guide will try to ensure that the trip runs according to plan, but an easy going nature will be an asset!
Camping accomodation is provided while on the trek (4 nights).
Our tents are supplied by MSR and are lightweight and weatherproof. They are very roomy to give you the most comfortable camping experience. We can provide either 1, 2 or 3 man options, depending on the number of people in your group.
Please bring your own sleeping bag and sleeping pad/Thermarest. If you are unable to bring your own, please contact us and we can arrange a rental.
The majority of this trip is off trail, deep in the wilderness (how we like it). The route changes throughout the year depending on the amount of snow, so don’t be surprised if there’s a bit back-and-forth to find the best route. Our guides are well trained in navigation and route finding, and are very knowledgeable about this area.
You will be carrying a pack with your camping equipment, clothing, food, etc. For this reason, you must be comfortable with carrying a moderately heavy load for multiple days. This is mountainous terrain so expect to climb a lot of elevation, and move across loose or rocky ground.
Snow is common well into the summer in the BC mountains. There is a good chance we will be walking on patches of snow well into August. Please bring waterproof hiking boots with good grip to deal with any terrain and conditions.
