With so many amazing places on our doorstep here in Vancouver we regularly take the weekend to head out of the city and into the beautiful mountains and do some hiking. A few weeks ago we headed to Whistler with our Aussie Eaton Arrowsmith friends to do the Joffre Lake hike.
This hike is an hour further north of Whistler past Pemberton and turned out to be a jewell definitely worth visiting! The 10km round trip was filled with some of the most beautiful scenery! Yes lots of uphill but nothing a regular semi fit person couldn’t handle. We had 17 in our group – 1 dad, 6 mums and 10 kids aged from 16 to 8.
There are three lakes to visit on the walk – one near the car park at the start of the climb and two lakes near the top! Incredible blue water, beautiful water falls and a glacier at the top! Fabulous in every way. By the time we were back to our car our iPhones told us we had done 20,000 steps and climbed 98 floors!
