Description

For those who love vast, natural landscapes, the Canadian territory of Yukon and province of British Columbia are absolute paradises. Hence why this week long hiking adventure on the famed Chilkoot trail, which traverses both the Yukon and British Columbia, is such a magnificent opportunity.

Beginning and ending in the Yukon capital city of Whitehorse, this trek on the Chilkoot trail will show you all that makes Northwest Canada so extraordinary. On the trail there is an endless collection of rivers, creeks, peaks, pastures, valleys and ridges. As a result, you will see an entire world that constantly shifts from step to step and minute to minute. Thus stimulating all of your senses, over and over again throughout each day.

The list of highlights you will get to enjoy during this trip is incredibly long. It includes amazing spots like Finnegan’s point, Lake Lindeman, Lake Bennet and much more. Also, for a large portion of the trip you will be camping under the stars, so those highlights span both night and day.

Wonderfully isolated, full of coastal rain forest, and populated by an array of beautiful wild life, this trek on the Chilkoot trail will take you where few ever venture. And to give you some historical context, you will be following in the footsteps of stampeders looking for riches over a century ago. There are even remnants of their journeys still present on the trail itself!

It is important that participants on this trip are in good physical condition because we will be trekking from 3 to 10 hours per day, covering distances from 8 to 13 kilometers.

Trekking on the Chilkoot trail is an unforgettable experience. If you would like to enjoy it for yourself, just send us a request.

Ended up booking a one-night-and-one-day hike summiting Mt Shasta because Mt Rainier was booked out.

I really loved it. Intro to rock climbing was an amazing experience. Explore-share team were so helpful in the process. The trip that I chose in the first place was not available and they managed to find alternatives and offer me the best possible solution in that situation. In the end I had a wonderful day and could not be happier!

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.

It would have been helpful to know it was suppose to be a Matterhorn prep course. The goals of the group were a little different.

I was very glad to have the Back country ski tour in Montata by following reasons. 1. I had quick replies from my coordinator and guide whenever I asked something; 2. My guide was cool. 3. The tour was well-planned and appropriate duration. 4. Snow was in a good condition. Thank you!!

Poor service from Explore-share! The vendor who provided the actual tour shared with Explore-share that heavy rains prevented them from doing a substantial section of the tour. I was not notified. The vendor also offered a substantial discount for what we were able to do and this was not shared with me either!

Neil was our guide and he was amazing! We did Camelback mountain climbing and he knew all about it and the other nearby mountains. Lots of great info and fun. I took my two boys, 9 and 11 years old plus climbed myself (44 years old). So perfect for all ages and skill levels. Definitely worth doing!!!

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!
