Thank you for Your inquiry, about a Pack Trip with Timberline Tours Ltd. Our scheduled trips are listed on the rate page as well as the departure dates. These trips take you into some of the most spectacular country to be seen in Banff National Park, with many high mountain passes, glaciers and alpine meadows. The mountain lakes also offer some excellent trout fishing! There is an abundance of wildlife in the area, making these trips an excellent opportunity for the photographers in your group!
In addition, we are also able to offer you Pack Trips of a Private or Special Nature. lf you have your own group that would like to travel privately, or you wish to go into a special area or lake, we can happily accommodate you! For these trips, we like to have a minimum of 3 people. A Private Trip is an excellent way for fishermen to find the greatest fishing holes! We can show you the best lake and stream fishing available in our area!
Our trips are organized on a much smaller scale than our competition. We find that this gives our customers a more personalized trip and friendlier service. The groups on our regular trips are limited to a maximum of twelve people, but usually average between four and eight.
The meeting point for all trips is at our main corral which is located behind Deer Lodge near the Chateau Lake Louise. We ask that people arrive for their trip between 9:30am and 10.00am.
personally have been in the guiding and outfitting business for over 35 years. I was born and raised in Banff, and my family has been here for generations. Bill Peyto, my great uncle, was one of the first guides, outfitters and National Park Wardens in this area, and settled in Banff National Park at the turn of the century. Peyto Lake and Peyto Glacier were named in his honour.
If you have any further questions or concerns about your trip, please do not hesitate to contact us. We hope to be riding the trails with you in the Canadian Rockies this year!
Yours sincerely, Paul and
