Wokkpash Lake Tour – Fly in/out

January 2 @ 3:00 pm

Explore Wokkpash Lake, BC, Canada by air and foot. 

Wokkpash Lake is in the Canadian Rockies in northeast British Columbia, Canada. A place known for its dramatic scenery. 

Join us for a 10-day adventure exploring around the northern lake. From the minute you’re dropped off and picked up you’ll be on a backpacking trip of a lifetime. Seeing most never see. A world of no people with your neighbours only being critters leaving trails to explore, with you being at the back of the trail that they leave behind. 

Included: 

Guided backpacking tour around Wokkpash Lake, BC with two experienced guides with knowledge of the area.

2-Night Stay at Muncho Lake Lodge.

2x 3-Course dinner.

Buffet styled breakfast.

2x Pizza lunch.

Frequently Asked Questions

How is the water?

No lack of water on this trip. A 2L bladder and 1 L size water bottles will be enough for carrying. Once at the lake I highly recommend filtering the lake water as I have seen it very mercury in colour and it all depends on the weather. The rivers can come up and turn the river brown and grey from runoff. Always safe to carry a filter when going into the backcountry.

How many meals do we need to pack? Meals not included. 

Dinner: 7

Lunch: 6

Breakfast: 7

It is ALWAYS a great idea to pack more food on a trip like this. An extra meal of each is recommended. The plane may not be able to land or come that day so it is a great practice when doing float plane trips to make sure you are packed for all circumstances. 

Where do we meet?

Muncho Lake, BC – July 6, 2024 – Check in after 3:00 PM. 

Do we have fires every night?

It all depends on what the current situation is with wildfires. It’s great to know before you go, when it comes to fire bans. 

Is liquor allowed? 

Yes, but not supplied. 

Where do we go to the bathroom?

You’ll be required to create catholes. Catholes should be dug at least 200 feet (60M) from water sources, walking trails, or campsites. Always use the buddy system when adventuring away from camp. Carry bear spray. The rule of the trip is if you go to the bathroom you come back with a stick for the fire. There is an outhouse at Wokkpash Lake as well, but can’t guarantee we will be at that camp the whole time. 

How many guides will be there?

Two experienced guides will be present during the trip to provide support and knowledge. An In-Reach Satellite communication device will be carried which provides two-way messaging and contact to helicopter support in the unlikely event an emergency occurs, and a local helicopter company will be aware of our whereabouts for the duration of the trip.

Can we day hike?

There is no leaving the group for day hikes, or other adventuring. We try to stick to a group as best as possible. Even on the trail, we must all see each other unless you note the guide otherwise. We will be hiking around the lake giving you plenty of adventure with the group. 

Will you send out a detailed itinerary?

Yes, we will send out a detailed plan of our day-to-day activities. But on a trip like this it is good to know weather controls our days and weather can impact what we do in a day. This is part of working in the mountains, you never know what the day will bring.

What about bears & wildlife?

We follow great bear safety as travelling in a group to start. There are small and big game on the trail. We share the trails with them. Porcupines and marmots have been a problem on previous trips. Make sure your supplies are in dry bags. It’s hard to store food in certain places so we do our best to stay bear safe. A gun will be carried by guides to provide safety. Food items will be stored away from camp when possible. There are two bear caches on the trail but not at every base. There will be one at Wokkpash Lake. Bear proof dry bags are available to rent! We can keep our extra days food in the Bear cache for when we get back from one destination to go to the other so we don’t have to carry all our food. 

Are dogs allowed?

There are no other dogs allowed on this trip. Only guides are allowed to bring their dogs. 

What if the plane can’t land due to the weather? 

This happens more often in the mountains as the weather can change fast. We pack an extra day of food for this kind of situation. One plane will be coming out of Muncho to Wokkpash, and we can’t promise the trips will make it on the same day, not itinerary can change very quickly. We suggest not booking your flights home on the same day and having a day or two in between flights if travelling home by plane. Trip insurance on your flight to location would be a great thing to add if travelling to the area by plane and looking at same day/night flights. 

Is there cell service?

There is no cell service on the trail. If you have a Satellite communication device I suggest bringing it. Once we get to the lodge you will be given a wifi password. There will be no phones aloud at dinner (scrolling). Every year I get shown that even when given wifi we all end up walking around the shore enjoying each other without staring into a phone. It’s a lost art in this world today. 

Do you have to tip the guides? 

The success of each trip depends on our excellent staff. If you received great service on the trip we always recommend leaving a tip, we don’t have a price range. Whatever you feel is best. Leaving a tip makes our guides feel valued and appreciated. Our tour guides are the reason these trips run and what not better way to thank them from a great trip!
