The lure of the highest peak is always a strong one. But with the Golden Hinde the appeal is even more so because of the remoteness of this, the highest mountain on Vancouver Island. Really more of a committed hiking journey the trip does include terrain where a rope and perhaps an axe or crampons may come into use. Back-packing and scrambling experience are recommended. The walk to and ascent of the Hinde combine to make a magical 8 day traverse on foot of some of the finest mountain wilderness anywhere from Philips Ridge all the way to the Elk River. And to top it off the summit of the island as a reward. A must do for any island mountain enthusiast. Client to guide ratio 4:1.
