Global Adventures

Small-group, guided mountain adventure trips to international destinations.

The Alpine Club of Canada runs trekking, skiing, climbing and mountaineering trips around the world. With the whole world to choose from, we don’t need to run the same trip twice. Small groups, a high guide-to-client ratio, dedicated Alpine Club camp managers, and exciting destinations mean that you’re guaranteed an experience you won’t get with just any tour operator.

We’re excited to announce two international trips for the summer of 2018!

Our Norway Climbing Camp will run from July 4-14, 2018. Fantastic granite climbing, serene mountain vistas, and beautiful turquoise ocean water are on offer in Northern Norway! Join the ACC and ACMG guides for an unforgettable climbing trip to Stetind, Norway`s National Mountain, and the gorgeous granite of the Lofoten Islands. Enjoy the local culture and friendly hospitality of the people of Nord Norsk.

Experience level: Intermediate (this trip will offer guided ascents of 5.5-5.9 multipitch climbs)

Dates: July 4-14, 2018

Our China Montaineering Camp will run in Septeber of 2018. Stand on top of a 6,000m peak; explore lesser-known summits; and drink in the culture, history and language of China. With Chinese-speaking camp staff, an all-inclusive itinerary, and Canadian ACMG guides, we want your trip to be as worry-free as possible. This is a not-to-be-missed opportunity to climb in an area that few Western tourists get to experience!

Experience level: Beginner

Dates: TBD (September 2018)

Dates and prices for our international camps will be released starting early-December, 2017! Please email the office to be put on our list for email updates (
