I have always wanted to check out the wildflowers festival at Sun Peaks Resort – and I finally made it up there! This is a great hiking activity that can take up an hour, a morning/afternoon or even a full day. I found that by checking it out earlier on in the day limited the amount of people I saw on the trails.
The alpine wildflowers are in full bloom during mid July to late August. There is a wide range of colourful flowers, including Alpine Pussytoes, Arctic Lupine, Fireweed, Indian Paint Brush, Larkspur, and much more!
It is absolutely beautiful all around this area. I had so much fun photographing flowers and taking a couple selfies. I made it up to the “Top Of The World” trail in under two hours. This alpine area offered incredible 360 views of the Monashee Mountains, Mount Robson, and even the Coastal Mountains way off in the distance.
Know Before You Go:
- Be prepared to see bears, deer and other wildlife on the trails.
- Do not forget your camera! Collect moments, not things!
- The Sunburst Chair is only operational for limited hours daily and seasonally.
- If you bring up food or drinks, remember to pack it out. Don’t litter in this gorgeous area!
