Type of Trip
Join me for 2 days of rock climbing in the Bugaboos mountain range, in British Columbia, enjoying exceptional granite walls and breathtaking views.
The Bugaboos are a range in the northwestern extreme of the Purcell Mountains, in the Columbia Mountains. Also, they lie within Bugaboo Provincial Park. The nearest towns are Golden and Radium.
I particularly recommend this 2-day trip not only because it is a famous spot in Canada, but also because of the quality of the granite walls. Besides, there is something for everyone here, from beginners to experienced climbers.
We will enjoy 2 days of rock climbing on spectacular granite spires, towering in the middle of beautiful glaciers. Most of the time, we will have to travel across the glaciers to access the climbing routes.
We have two accommodation options: we can either sleep in the Kain Hut, with room for 40 people, or we can camp at Applebee Camp Site. In this case we would trek up the moraine, above the hut. It would be a 30 to 40 minutes walk.
From Bugaboo Provincial Park parking lot, there is a trail that climbs and takes us straight to the Kan Hut. It will take us about 3 hours.
Also, if you wish so, I can hire a porter. He could carry some gear and our food to the Kain Hut or to the camp, depending on your desired trip duration. This way the hike would be less strenuous.
So if you want to climb on this amazing granite walls, contact me! We will plan for an unforgettable 2-day trip in the Bugaboos.

What happens if I need to cancel the trip?
If you decide to cancel, you’ll get a 100% refund (minus fees) if the cancellation is notified up to 60 days before the start of the tour, a 75% refund (minus fees) if you cancel between 59 and 30 days before the start of the tour, and a 50% refund if you cancel between 29 and 21 days before the start of the tour. If you cancel less than 21 days before the first day of the tour, you won’t receive a refund. Take into account, however, that if accommodation, flights or transfers were included in the trip you booked, then a different policy may apply as the guide will be bound by the provider’s cancellation policy.
What happens if the guide cancels the trip because of bad weather/unsuitable conditions?
If bad weather or unsuitable conditions force the guide to cancel the trip, he or she will: a) propose a similar activity at a different place where conditions are better, or b) propose to postpone the activity until a later date, or c) cancel. If you refuse option a), our cancellation policy will apply. Please note, however, that the call to cancel a trip due to bad weather can only be made by the guide (not the client).
What happens if the guide doesn’t show up or cancels for personal reasons?
If the guide cancels for reason of injury or other, you will get a 100% refund on your trip.
