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)
Elevation: 820 meters
