|Toba Traverse - Backpacking in British Columbia Coast Mountains|
The Toba Traverse trip follows a ridge divide on the British Columbia coast above the spectacular fjord named Toba Inlet. The whole area is a rugged arctic-alpine wilderness of granite ridges clothed in heather and grasses. It is strewn with dozens of alpine lakes which are tucked into deep shady pockets. Most of these have granite slabs shooting straight into the water. The area has a very remote character despite being less than two hundred miles north of the city of Vancouver.
This trip is a remote backpacking excursion that requires some backcountry experience:
* Basic backpacking experience
* Camping skills.
* Physical fitness for a 5-day backpack trip.
* Technical climbing is not involved
* There is opportunity for scrambling some summits
The trip is based out of Powell River, BC, which is served by daily flights from Vancouver, BC. Flights from Seattle are very easy to arrange. We can help with arrangements. Five days in the field and a travel day on each end make this a perfect one week holiday. The price includes food, fuel, tents, stoves and fly-in costs, lodging and meals in Powell River.
