FAQs: Mountain Climbing in Canada

What should I know about Mountain Climbing Canada?

Canada is the northernmost country in North America, sharing a border with the United States predominantly to the south as well as to the west via Alaska. Known for its wide open landscapes and forested wilderness, this multilingual country has everything a thrill seeker could possibly want. Mountain-top glaciers run down into crisp rivers that cut through the jagged mountains and hillsides for a never-ending playground of gorges and canyons. From east to west and back again, all within proximity to major transportation hubs.

Why should I choose Canada for my Mountain Climbing adventure?

Massive mountainside

The Canadian territory is a unique place. Not only because of its size and geography, but for the number of lakes, rivers, flora and fauna. It contains a considerable amount of fresh water, much of it emanating from its countless lakes that exceed 2 million. And the forested regions spread across its countryside, guaranteeing mountain climbs in the pure American wilderness.

Prized pristine landscapes

Vast and wild scenery dominate Canada, especially the rugged regions in the west. UNESCO-listed World Heritage Sites scattered across the mountainside, giant peaks perfect for climbing, picturesque parks that are protected. Canada has it all, including the Banff National Park, the oldest in the country, and holds some of the most iconic landscapes that make Canada a climbing hotspot.

**Easy mountain access **

Although Canada is full of epic natural spots from coast to cost, covering immense territory, the majority of Canadian mountains stand along the provincial border between British Columbia and Alberta. The large cities here, such as Vancouver and Calgary provide good access via roads and rails to the wilder mountainside sections within the western provinces, giving ideal access.

What can I expect from the weather in Canada?

Weather in Canada can be extreme, yet the summer months are consistently pleasant, with moderate to warm temperatures. The mountainous regions tend to avoid severe weather during the summer, though the continental climate of the interior can be dramatic.

Which language is predominantly spoken in Canada?

English and French.

What currency is accepted in Canada?

Canadian dollar.

What’s the country code of Canada?


What’s the high season for Mountain Climbing in Canada?

Visit between the months of May and August for ideal mountain climbing conditions.

What people are saying about Mountain Climbing | Canada



Jeff is an exceptional individual and excellent mountain guide. Our climb up Athabasca was a truly amazing experience. I saw a sea of mountain peaks that I had never seen before. Alpine air adventures offers in my opinion the best value for money when it comes to alpine climbing. Highly recommended!



Summitted mt. Athabasca with Jeff and it was an unbelievable experience. Breathtaking views and excellent coaching along the way



We have been going on mountaineering and ski trips with Jeff Bullock for about five years now. Most recently, we climbed Mt. Athabasca with Jeff in August 2020. No matter what the adventure, we love Jeff’s approach to guiding. We always feel safe going with him and always have a great time. Jeff brings humility, humour, honesty, a passion for teaching and great stories. We will continue to do our dream trips with Jeff and Alpine Air Adventures in the future!
