3 Reasons to Hike Sunshine Meadows

Sunshine Meadows

Sunshine Meadows

Sunshine Village is home to incredible skiing in winter and fantastic hiking in summer, here are a few reasons why:

  1. Accessible Hikes – One of Sunshine Meadows’ best features is it’s accessibility to a range of hiking abilities. Hikers can choose from easy 1-2 hour strolls, to more challenging full day hikes and beyond. There are also options to hike independently or as part of a guided group.
  2. Voted #1 by Lonely Planet – One of the most well-known and respected guidebooks in the world rated Sunshine Meadows hikes as #1 in Canada. We might be a little biased, but it’s easy to see how the big views, easy accessibility, and untouched nature of the area was rated so highly.
  3. Wildflowers – Nature Rules in Banff National Park. We believe that our landscape should remain as untouched as possible. This means our unobstructed views are much the same now as they were a hundred years ago. Because of the preservation of our UNESCO World Heritage Site, wildflowers are abundant throughout Sunshine Meadows. Seen throughout summer and autumn, the wildflowers look like Mother Nature took a paintbrush to the canvas of the Canadian Rockies. Bonus bursts of yellow are seen throughout September as Larch leaves turn gold in anticipation of winter.
