For a real break from reality and everyday hustle & bustle, consider the vast Canadian Rockies your refuge. Fly to the 2-million-acre Tumbler Ridge UNESCO Geopark in the foothills of the Rockies and reset on this 7-day adventure alongside like-minded ladies! Whether you’re into chilling by the lake or taking on exciting ridges and peaks, Tumbler Ridge has got you covered. Apart from 728-million-year-old geosites and astounding dinosaur trackways, you’ll feel the misty spray of majestic Kinuseo Falls, paddleboard on Gwilliam Lake, and enjoy the sunrise summit of The Terminator perched up at 7,877 ft. The combo of unspoiled nature and a great team of women by your side will make this a Canadian holiday to remember.

    Scale The Terminator at sunrise, walk along refreshing waterfalls and serene lakes


Thrive in the company of like-minded women on this 7-day Canadian adventure, gathering the best-ofs in Tumbler Ridge and Northern Canadian Rockies. You will fly to Tumbler Ridge UNESCO Geopark—home to dinosaur remains, crystalline lakes, deep canyons, mighty waterfalls, and stellar peaks—for a real taste of wilderness. While you’re there, you’ll be based in quaint mountain huts, while the rest of the trip will be spent in local hotels. Join this all-women tour and leave with friendships for life and a filled photo gallery!

  • Meet your guide and your group at 10 am on Day 1 of the tour in Fort St. John. If you choose the Air Canada flight departing at 8:10 am from Vancouver, you can meet up with your guide who will be on that flight. Upon arrival, you’ll be greeted by Danielle Roscher, owner and operator of JADEFit, and transferred to Tumbler Ridge. Tumbler Ridge is famous for its dinosaur artifacts, so you’ll take a “Dinosaur Hike”, following real dinosaur prints, and visit a museum. Afterwards head to the Compass Mountain Outfitters Camp for the Sunrise Summit Adventure, a once-in-a-lifetime experience which you don’t want to miss. Head to bed in time, as you’ll be waking up very early.

    Meals: Lunch

  • Rise and shine! At 2 am, you’ll begin your ascent to the top of “The Terminator” for sunrise. You’ll take trucks to reach the trailhead. The hike itself is a strenuous vertical climb, but when you reach it, it will all be worth it. You’ll be served coffee and breakfast as you watch the sun
    come up over the mountains. Return to the camp at around 10 am—naps are usually in order and you’ll revive in the afternoon. You have two options later on: stay in the area and enjoy the lake, hot tub, or go paddleboarding. The second option is going on a guided trip to the Shipyard and Babcock Falls, a 30-min drive and a 6-km walk. Gather for dinner in the evening next to the fire to enjoy the Canadian outdoor experience.

    Accommodation: Sunrise Summit Camp in Tumbler Ridge
    Distance: 6 km / 3.7 miles
    Elevation change: 300 m / 984 ft
    Meals: Breakfast, lunch, and dinner

    Note: When it comes to the Sunrise Summit, keep in mind that weather may not cooperate. Hiking in the dark on steep sections without much sleep is challenging enough on its own, but it gets even harder with bad weather. Having said that, even the most inexperienced hiker can still make it to the top with the help of the team.

  • Pack up and head towards your next hiking destination. No trip to Tumbler Ridge is complete without seeing Kinuseo Falls—this 70-meter tall monumental wonder of nature showers over 40m3 of water a second. Just across the road is the historic Stone Corral trail. Around each bend is a new surprise with 15 different stops including two caves, a massive rock coral, and a tiny underground, stream-fed lake. Expect a 4-5-km (6.4-8 miles) walk with 230 m (755 ft) of elevation change. Drive back into Tumbler and check into your hotel.

This was my first time with Walking Women and I have to say it was just great getting together with a bunch of like-minded women enjoying the walks, the scenery, the chats and of course the cream teas! Chrissie was a great host and walk leader. I will certainly be looking to 2020 for another walking holiday. Keep up the great work.

From the little I have experienced on my holiday with WW, I can see people and places are carefully selected, and held to a high standard with prices that remain almost affordable for all; curated to make the guest at ease at all times wether in the intinerary of the walks or the destination hotel/B&B stay. As a solo traveler I’m only sorry I didnt discover it sooner 🙂
