During summer, mosquitoes are common hiking companions. However, after late August, they virtually disappear so you can spend less time scratching bites and more time exploring the majestic waterfalls and trails. Link up with our local guides to make the most of your trip.
Get away from the crowdsFor the locals, Fall is a favourite time to enjoy Wells Gray’s pristine wilderness. Do like the locals and come after the crowds have peaked to have an even bigger piece of Wells Gray all to yourself! Try a boat tour up to Azure Lake where you will certainly feel like you have all 1 million acres of park to yourself. Or hop on a raft or kayak and have an adventure of a lifetime down the Clearwater River with your friends.
