Description

For any nature lover, a 12 day hike on the Donjek route is a dream come true. This amazing path that leads through the vast Yukon territory of Canada is a gorgeous stretch of wilderness.

Located in the amazing Kluane national park, the Donjek route is actually not a route at all. There are no defined trails, or limits. There are also no prepared campsites either. Instead, it is just a huge stretch of land that we will be hiking through.

Extremely isolated, this journey is ideal for those who just want to get away and escape from the noise and congestion of the city. Along with the sheer beauty of the landscape as a whole, there are also several wonderful highlights on this adventure. They include a clear view of Canada’s highest peak, Mount Logan (5,959m). They also include a variety of rivers like the Duke river, valleys like the Donjek river valley, and creeks, like the Hoge creek, the Bighorn creek, the Chert creek, and the Copper Joe creek. Furthermore, you will have the chance to see some amazing wildlife in their natural habitat, including caribou!

You will also make your way through immense ice fields, glaciers, and high altitude alpine terrain.

Overall, this trip is a fantasy come true for those who truly adore nature. It is stunning and beautiful, but also challenging. We will be hiking approximately 100 kilometres over the course of this trip. Thus why all participants should be in good physical condition, and have some prior backpacking experience.

This is the kind of trip that stays with you for years after you’ve completed it. The scenery as well as the experience is that memorable. All you have to do is send us a request, and see for yourself.

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!
