Garibaldi Provincial Park, British Columbia

(4.8/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
Embrace the wilderness at Garibaldi Provincial Park, a pristine alpine park that features a jagged glacier-capped mountain vista, a scenic lake, and a wide array of plant and animal life. Douglas firs, western red cedar, and western hemlock forests dot the grounds. Go for a leisurely trek through the canopied park, paying special attention to the glacial mountain vantage point, or the lush greenery surrounding Garibaldi Lake. These treks can be quite challenging, particularly in the winter months, so approach with caution if fitness or walking ability are a concern.

  • I didn't for a while and Vancouver is so close in this beautiful Lake. It is thanks to the friend invited me. Looks much more beautiful because different locations easily accessible by car, such as Lake Louise and moraine Lake and struggled with myself, got, the more I think that impressed. So says the hike itself isn't a very slippery slope. It is slope a little zig-zag the streets are well paved, so anyone can walk. It is just hiking trails are long anyway. One way 10 km far. Zig-zag can last a few hours and come tired to walk. But is the best views you can see fatigue in Exchange for. Exhausting and exhausted when when I anymore and I looked in front of turquoise blue lakes cannot express in words. After that is a series of views. Find your favorite place, so we take a lunch. No retail store, so all will bring. From here follow further core climber seems difficult trails in popularity, but was amateur could do at this point. Me not much confidence in the strength of such were so visited, in a 9-hour trek including lunch-time amateur even day hikes from Vancouver. The following is advice considerations for the untrained eye, possessions, etc. (1) physical practises....

  • It was a total of 20km hike and a bit difficult but the view at the destination is totally worth it.  more »
  • It is by far the most beautiful trip I've done in my life. The view is amazing and the possibility of feeding a bird that sits you in hand is something that makes you feel like in a film. 100% recommend this hike is long and tiring, but worth it

  • Long approach to the lake from Rumble Creek parking lot. Beautiful from the lake, easy hikes up to Panorama Ridge and Black Tusk from the lake.
  • I did a 4 day backpacking trip here a couple years ago and it was amazing. The mountains around Garibaldi Lake are beautiful. Panorama Ridge has an incredible 360 view at the top. Also the Black Tusk was a very dramatic and intense mountain to climb. Swimming in Garibaldi Lake after hiking all day was very cold but satisfying as well.
  • Exquisite lakes and amazing hikes with spectacular views!
  • Long trail with breathtaking lake at the end. Be prepared for endless hill. Take a lot of water and do not forget swimsuit in summer. Lake is wonderful but trail is hard and long. Enjoy it.
  • Please someone else assist me how to go there,is any bus available to go there?
