Chilcotin Holidays

New: Wildflower Meadows Walking and Hikes in the Chilcotin mountains


On our new wildflower meadow hikes, our trained licensed guides will take you into the remote areas of the South Chilcotin Mountain where the wildflower meadows are in full bloom. From June to September, the Chilcotin Mountain ranges are transformed into brilliant displays of colours ranging from subtle pastels to fiery reds and purples – a botanist’s paradise, and a beautiful place for hikes. Between June and September, choose one of our hikes according to the month that best suits your flora interests.

June is the time when the balsa root first starts to bloom. With the coming of spring, brings the bold and bright colours from the first wildflowers marking the passing of the winter snow. Similarly, animals are preparing for the birth of their young and black, brown, and grizzly bears are feasting on new alpine grasses after months of being in hibernation, offering many wildlife viewing opportunities from the alpine meadows. Hikes this time allow you to watch some of the most beautiful animals on earth.

July and the warmer weather encourages more wildflowers to flourish carpeting the higher elevations. Hikes in this weather are hot, but you'll find shade under the towering trees around the meadows. Given the elevation level, spring arrives in the alpine in July as the snow line recedes up the mountain slopes with wildlife following close behind.

August is when all southern mountain aspects are in full bloom in the subalpine and alpine zones. A truly spectacular display of flowers beckons.

September brings the pinnacle of spring/summer blooms on the north slopes of the Chilcotin Mountains. At the same time, the first dusting of snow appears around mid-September providing a unique overlap of spring, summer, and fall – all at once!For more details on our hill walking, hiking, and trekking vacations in British Columbia’s South Chilcotin Mountains, visit our new hiking website at: http://www.wildernesstrekkingcanada.com/.
