RV to Joffre Lakes on Highway 99

RV to Joffre Lakes on Highway 99

Joffrey Lakes Tour

The Joffre Lakes hike is one of British Columbia’s most popular and beautiful hikes. Three exquisite lakes with turquoise water, breathtaking views, and majestic glacier-laden peaks towering high above, make this a relatively moderate hike with incredible rewards. The Joffre Lakes hike should be on both locals’ and visitors’ bucket list! Located 2.5 hours north of Vancouver, on the beautiful Sea To Sky Highway.

***Note to travellers from Germany and the rest of Europe*** Highway 99, or the route that you need to travel to get to Joffre Lakes is a ‘off the radar’ type of route for most British Columbians. This route has been circumvented by other major routes so for the average traveler in BC, they never have to drive. Highway 99 is the type of route that people from BC take when they poll their friends and ask, “What are the best RVing routes to take in BC?”

Highway 99, from Vancovuver is known as ‘The Sea To Sky Highway’, ‘Whistler Highway’ or the Squamish Highway’. If you see it being referred to the ‘Fraser Delta Thruway’ this is a name for the highway that is still in the Greater Vancouver area. Joffrey Laakes is several hours north of that area.

Where does the Highway 99 begin and end?
Highway 99 begins in US but for the portion we are discussing here, it begins at the US / Canada border and continues for over 400 km to Highway #1 near Cache Creek just North of Kamloops BC

RVing Mount Robson Provincial Park

RVing Mount Robson Provincial Park

RVing Mount Robson Provincial Park

Mount Robson, is the most prominent peak in all the North American Rocky Mountains! So what does that mean for a potential vacation destination. It means that from every angle of view (ie: get your camera out) you will be in awe of one of the oldest preserved wild lands of British Columbia. With Glaciers throughout the alpine, hiking and biking trails to explore and wildlife near every stream or hidden in every nook and cranny of the unique outback terrain, you will enjoy every minute of your getaway. ….or will you?

Having trekked, hiked and driven throughout many parts of BC, I have come to realize that being drenched by rain, kept up at night by the scurrying of critters in the woods (the brain always goes to lions tigers and bears) and finding a leak in an unsealed seam on my brand new tent puts a bit of a damper on enjoying my getaway. When traveling alone or with adults that I don’t need to worry about, I can have fun regardless of what nature throws my way. When I want to bring my wife on my outdoor adventures though, I want to guarantee complete enjoyment and comfort. So the last time I went on a tour of the Kootenays with my wife, I made sure we could sleep in an enclosed, secure, dry unit.

Mount Robson Provincial Park can provide the trip of a lifetime, if you are prepared. The best way to travel throughout the Kootenays and enjoy the Rocky Mountains is in a Campervan RV. If you have never rented an RV or are unfamiliar with what the Kootenays has to offer, Jeff at Vantastic Rentals can help with all the trip preparedness that you will need. He will send you off on your vacation in a safe, secure, DRY and fun campervan.
