If you're more into mountains than coastlines, you could string together a couple shorter trips in Garibaldi Park. Garibaldi Park offers many incredible backpacking opportunities that are all on well-defined trails:
- Elfin Lakes/Mamquam Lake - 44kms out and back, you could do 3 nights, one at Elfin Lakes, 1 at Rampart Ponds, and then another night at Elfin Lakes on your way back
- Garibaldi Lake to Cheakamus Lake - 9 kms to Garibaldi Lake (7 to Taylor Meadows), 9 kms from Garibaldi Lake or Taylor Meadows to Helm Creek CG, 9 kms to Cheakamus Lake or the Cheakamus Trailhead if you are done.
- Russet Lake - 14.5 kms one-way
