Guiding

Our low guiding ratio will give you the best possible chance of success. The small groups mean that you can split up based on objectives and pacing, and get the individualized attention needed to tackle more challenging routes.  

This camp is guided by Association of Canadian Mountain Guides-certified Alpine and Apprentice Alpine guides.

  • “It was day one. No wait, it was day two. No, that’s not correct, it was day three. Or maybe day five. Day six? Do you see where I am going with this? Highlight every day.”
  • “great guides, really great guides.”
  • “All the peaks were fun!”
  • “Spending five days hiking with such a friendly, supportive group of new friends, in an area that I have never hiked before. An adventure I’ll never forget.”
  • “The guide knew the hikes, was well organized and a great communicator and was always concerned about our safety and enjoyment.”
