    About the Joffre Lakes Hike 

    The Joffre Lakes Hike should be on everybody's to do list. Joffre Lakes is one of British Columbia's most beautiful hikes and is a relatively moderate hike compared to other alpine lakes in the region. The hike passes three exquisite lakes with turquoise blue water. LIVV Adventures offer a very affordable and convenient return transportation service on select weekends, making this hike accessible for all Vancouverites! Board one of our luxury air-conditioned buses in Vancouver and join a group of like-minded people who are yearning to experience one of the many hidden gems that British Columbia has to offer.

    The first lake, Lower Joffre Lake, is located minutes from the parking lot. The views are stunning and on a clear day, Matier Glacier can be seen hanging high above. From Lower Joffre Lake, begin your hike to Middle and Upper Joffre Lakes. You will first cross a bridge, whereafter you will follow the trail along the edge of the lake. Soon after, the trail starts climbing through forested areas. After about 20mins on the trail, a clearing allows for sweeping views over the valley. 

    After crossing the Joffre Creek, a couple of switchbacks will take you towards Middle Joffre Lake. At the viewpoint of the second lake, you will notice the majestic glacier-laden peaks towering above you. Continue hiking towards Upper Joffre Lake and pass a scenic waterfall. After a walk along the lake, you will reach a viewpoint overlooking all three lakes, with the glacier in the background. Take pictures, soak up the scenery and have lunch in one of British Columbia's most scenic spots. Hear the rumble of ice breaking off the glacier and tumbling down the rocky slopes towards the lake.

    Start making your way down towards the parking lot so the you will be in time for our departure at 15:30pm. You will arrive back in Vancouver around 18:30pm filled with unforgettable memories!
