Weldmar’s Canadian Rockies Trek 2019

Weldmar took on the Canadian Rockies for 2019’s oversea challenge, which took places between the 31st August and the 6th September.


Starting in Banff National Park, our trekkers spent five days trekking and camping in the spectacular Kootenay, Banff and Yoho National Parks. It was a breath-taking experience discovering jagged mountain peaks, glaciers, forests, waterfalls and lakes within this part of Canada.

Be part of our next Overseas Challenge, when we will be going to the Indian Himalayas in 2020.

Departing for the Canadian Rockies!
