With turquoise-coloured water nestled between alpine mountains and a spectacular glacier as the backdrop, Garibaldi Lake is one of the most scenic destinations in British Columbia.

Although it's a month away, I'm setting up the event now due to the number of requests I'm getting for the hike. Folks, the trail's currently full of snow and lake almost completely frozen so if you want to see that turquoise-coloured water, you'll have to wait a month. Having said that, I'll be taking travellers visiting Vancouver for a short time so will be posting if anyone wants to join on those trips (mostly weekdays).

Level: Intermediate (You must be fairly fit but I will help those who need a little bit of time to get to the top!)
Time: 12 hours (Includes transportation)
Distance: 18km
Elevation: 820 meters

We will meet @ the Burrard Skytrain station @ 9 am, across from the Hyatt hotel (where the taxis park). Register for $45 for guided tour and transportation here: naturephotohikes.com/register/product/garibaldi-lake-2/

Schedule:
9am — Meet at Burrard station bit.ly/19WhypQ and drive to Squamish
10:45 — Arrive at Garibaldi, start hike
2:00 — Reach top, break for lunch, swimming (optional, bring swimsuits!)
5 — Start descent
8 — Finish hike, leave Garibaldi
9 — Arrive in Vancouver downtown, grab dinner/drinks (optional)

Things to bring: water, sunscreen, lunch and snacks, comfortable sneakers/hiking shoes, jacket and layered clothing, swimwear, and a camera :)
