Where to catch last of larch season in Alberta
Every fall larches blow up our social feeds and generate instant FOMO among those of us who haven’t yet made it out for a fall hike, particularly in the eastern Alberta Rockies, which are especially plentiful with larch.
But as #SeekersAmbassador Stevie Gaultier likes to point out, FOMO can be a useful motivator to push us in the direction of our dreams, helping us tick off those bucket list experiences.
So if hiking among the larches is on your bucket list (and let’s be honest, how could it not be?), here’s some serious FOMO fodder.
But more importantly, some tips from our #SeekersAmbassador crew on where to get after it.

Lastly, be sure to stay safe and respect wildlife. Bears are active right now, trying to fatten up for winter, and they can be aggressive. Read up on bear safety, carry bear spray and check local advisories.
