1-day climb of Mount Temple near Lake Louise, Canada


Join a certified mountain guide and conquer the Mount Temple, the highest peak in the Lake Louise area, in the Canadian Rockies.



1 Day

Jul - Sep




* Conquer the iconic heights of Mount Temple in the stunning Lake Louise area.

* Witness incredible panoramic views of the surrounding mountain range.

* Pass by the glittering mountain reflections in the Moraine Lake.


The most visible peak in the Lake Louise area, the stunning Mount Temple was the first 11,000er to be climbed in the Canadian Rockies in 1894.

We begin from the Moraine Lake, hiking its northern shore and heading along the beautiful and winding Larch Valley Trail. As we reach Sentinel Pass, there are a couple of easily-climbable rock bands. And then our final challenge takes us to the top that is often covered with snow.

The strain on this final push to the peak soon becomes a distant memory, as extraordinary panoramic views take over the landscape. Mountains roll beyond the eye can see.

The ultimate scramble offers incredible views of Paradise Valley and the Valley of the Ten Peaks.

We’ll hike past the prominent cliffs and soaring peaks of the Lake Louise area. When we continue out of the trees, magnificent views begin to open. As we ascent the larches, the sparkling blue waters of Moraine Lake reflect the nearby peaks.

Get in touch now to reserve your place in the magnificent Canadian Rockies and climb Mount Temple, the highest peak in Lake Louise.

What people are saying about E-S Adventure Guides



Great guides and great snow!



Will was great wise and fun to spend the day with.



Guide cancelled within 48 hrs and I was unable to find someone else and so far I’ve not been refunded. Put a small dent in my otherwise great trip to Revelstoke.



All perfect



Guide was very experienced and very patient with us. We learned alot and he tried to fit in all the knowledge he could in one day, super awesome. A little tough going back and forth to get the trip set up hard to tell if the site is sketchy until you see reviews but all worked out. Ended up with an awesome day with an awesome guide. Overall pretty satisfied and thankful!
