Golden Hinde 5 Day Trip
We also call this the Golden Hinde Challenge because it requires a much higher level of fitness than our 8 day Golden Hinde trip. 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. This 5 day trip is more direct via Phillips Ridge and includes long days of backpacking and significant elevation gains requiring a high level of fitness. The walk to and ascent of the Hinde combine to make a magical 5 day traverse on foot of some of the finest mountain wilderness anywhere. And to top it off the summit of the highest mountain on the island as a reward. A must do for any island mountain enthusiast. Client to guide ratio 4:1.
