Squamish Day Hiking Trip Overview

Let us custom build a guided Squamish hike to suit you!

Squamish is known as the outdoor recreation capital of Canada and it definitely lives up to its name. We can design an adventure filled day of hiking and scrambling in Squamish that suits your fitness level.

The mountains surrounding Squamish are wild and rugged, providing endless opportunities for trekking through the most spectacular landscapes. All around you will see ancient glaciers, volcanic mountains, turquoise lakes, crystal clear rivers and alpine meadows filled with wildflowers. Whether you’re looking for a casual yet remote camping experience, or a challenging scramble up a summit, we can build a guided hiking trip to suit you.

If you're looking to get really wild, why not try our Squamish multi-day backpacking trip, or if you're in Whistler we also run a Whistler guided day hike

What our customers say about Outdoor Explore guided adventures
"
While on holiday in Vancouver my husband and I went on the 5 day Powell Forest canoe trip with Outdoor Explore earlier this month. We had little experience with Canadian canoes and it took us a little while to get the hang of things but once we were going it was wonderful paddling across the 4 lakes and the scenery was fantastic. The trip was very well organised, all the equipment and food was arranged for us but we had to bear in mind that everything had to be carried between the lakes so we had to make sure that our personal kit was as light as possible. The portaging was the hardest part of the trip as the boats were heavy and some of the bags were heavy too but thankfully the longest one was only 2.8 km so not too far and we managed between the group to carry everything. Each night we stopped at a camp site on the lake which were all equipped with flattened areas for the tents, composting toilets and some had fire drums. Fortunately there wasn't a fire ban so we could have a fire each night. You really felt you were out in the wilderness when all the food was in a bear-proof barrel tided to a tree at night, all other smelly items had to be put up a tree or up a bear hang. We even had to dig a hole to spit our toothpaste in so that the smell didn't attract bears to the area. It was all very exciting for people who come from the UK where we don't have any bears. We had a thoroughly enjoyable time and would do the trip again....
