Overnight Backpacking Trips
Our backpacking trips get you outside into areas that are less known, off-the-beaten-path, and away from the crowds.

Women's Backpacking Trips
Take some time for you and your girlfriends! This is a wonderful way to unwind and enjoy the mountain life. Our girl's weekends are led by your own private and accredited guide: one bad-ass female. We will explore, share laughs and stories, and eat some good food.

Mystery Backpacking Trips
Choose your adventure, a bike and backpacking trip, or a remote backpacking trip. We explore hidden gems in the South Canadian Rockies, high and low, and around every corner and we want to share this with you. This is your chance to get away and truly experience the mountains off-the-beaten-path where the perfect mystery awaits.

Intro to Backpacking

"My mom, sister and I did the “mystery backpacking trip” with Heather just this past weekend. Heather was INCREDIBLE. Heather’s passion for what she does became clear very quickly - and I think that is what makes her such a great guide. If you’re on the fence about booking an adventure with Uplift, I would absolutely recommend it, and I can’t wait to book my next one."
