Nabbing a camping spot here will take some advanced planning — Parks Canada reservations for the 30 campsites usually sell out the first day they’re available. But your efforts are rewarded with simply stunning views.

Located in Kootenay National Park at the base of a sheer 1,000-metre-tall rock face, this campground offers views of an alpine lake and is often snowy until mid-July. Make a reservation here through Parks Canada.

This moderate trail passing three turquoise glacier-fed lakes is popular for a reason — it’s gorgeous. Although it’s crowded during the day, if you book a campsite you can watch the day-trippers trickle away and have the place to yourself by sunset.

Garibaldi Lake

Book a campsite here for a two-day adventure ascending to either Panorama Ridge or Black Tusk. A lakeside campsite is a perfect way to break up the 30-kilometre routes.

Sombrio Beach

This rocky beach along the Juan de Fuca Trail on the west coast of Vancouver Island features a spectacular hidden waterfall inside a cave. You’ll also get amazing sunsets and possibly see orcas, seals, or otters.
