3-day Alpine skills course at the Peyto Hut on the Wapta Icefield in Banff (Group)


Come with Maarten, an ACMG certified mountain guide, and develop your alpine skills on this 3-day course in Peyto Hut and the Wapta Icefield surroundings, inside the Banff National Park of Canada.



3 Days





  • Improve your alpine skills on this course at the Peyto Hut.
  • Enjoy ascents around the Wapta Icefield with an experienced guide.
  • Go on a unique outdoor adventure in Canada.


Situated in the north section of the Wapta Icefield and very near the Peyto Glacier, Peyto Hut is an alpine hut inside the Banff National Park. This is the oldest national park in Canada and is located in the Rocky Mountains, one of the most popular destinations for snow and mountain activities in the country.

On this opportunity, I invite you to combine an alpine course with ascents on the Wapta Icefield. The purpose of the course is to help you improve your alpine skills and prepare you for future experiences in the mountains. I’ll teach you what I know and give you useful advice.

During these 3 days, our base will be the Peyto Hut and we’ll explore the beautiful areas surrounding the Wapta Icefield. We’ll arrange the accommodation and meals for you and you’ll share the experience with other participants in a group trip. Please, consider that it’s important to have a good level of fitness for this trip.

So, do you find this course at the Peyto hut interesting? Then, don’t hesitate to send the request and book your place. We’ll start making all the necessary arrangements right away.

Another good option could be this 4-day mountaineering trip in Valley of the Ten Peaks. Check it out!

About the guide

Growing up in the rather flat country of the Netherlands, I never knew what I was missing till visiting the Canadian Rockies in my early 20s. We live in the small town of Exshaw, surrounded by tall limestone peaks. I'm a passionate alpine climber, working and recreating around Banff, Lake Louise and the Icefields Parkway. I'm certified as an apprentice Alpine Guide with the ACMG.

The Canadian Rockies are most known for their spectacular (and reliable!) ice and mixed climbing. Whether you're hoping to tick one of the hard classics or learn to swing an ice tool, we have it all!

Please contact me if you're interested in both a guided and educational mountain experience, in the Canadian Rockies and beyond!
