Join me in gorgeous Canada for a 4 day privately guided exploration of the Valley of the Ten Peaks, a highlight of Banff National Park near the Lake Louise resort area in the Canadian Rockies!
We will spend 4 days together exploring the mixed alpine terrain of the beautiful valley and the surrounding peaks, which range from Mount Perren at 10,010 ft (3,051 m) to Deltaform Mountain at 11,234 ft (3,424 m). In fact, the glaciated valley is so stunning that it was once featured on the Canadian twenty dollar bill. During this trip, we will enjoy breathtaking views of snowcapped glaciers and the crystal blue waters of Lake Louise as we combine the adventure of outdoor exploration with the peace and tranquility of the mountains.
The specific itinerary of each privately guided trip can be customized depending on the participants and the mountain conditions at the time. While the options are endless, possibilities include: alpine ridge traverses, rock scrambles, or glacier tours. We can even attempt to ascend the Northern face of one of the impressive peaks of the region. This program is suitable for intermediate level mountaineers, with decent physical fitness and some previous rock climbing experience required.
We will be based at the Neil Colgan hut during this program, which will serve as a convenient base from which to explore the surrounding valley. The approach to and from to the hut will involve 5th class climbing over glaciated terrain.
Book this 4 day custom adventure now and we will enjoy some of the most stunning landscapes the Canadian Rockies have to offer as we explore the incredible mixed alpine terrain of the region!

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!

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
