During this 4-day adventure, you will climb the classic routes of the Bugaboo Mountains in Canada, considered some of the best routes on the continent!

Rising above the icy glaciers that cover the landscape, the breathtaking granite spires of the Bugaboo Mountains lure mountaineers from all over the world, especially those who are eager to test themselves on some of the best granite around.  In fact, 4 routes in the Bugaboos are listed in top 50 classic climbs of North America.  The legendary Northeast Ridge of Bugaboo Spire is just one of many world class routes that can be found in this small but impressive group of spires.

We will have an opportunity to explore the classic routes in the Bugaboos for 4 days during this trip.  As I will guide you in private, the exact routes we select will be based on your interests, skills, and weather conditions. However, I’ve included a sample day-by-day itinerary below so that you can get a feel for the program.  There is no shortage of amazing routes in the area, and you will have an incredibly rewarding and memorable mountaineering experience as I guide you up the best of them.

During this program, we will spend the night at either a campsite or a mountain hut.  The program is suitable for participants with solid rock climbing experience and some previous mountaineering experience.  If the weather conditions are not suitable for climbing in the Bugaboos, we will have the option to climb in the Rockies or in the Rogers Pass area.

Book now to experience some of the best climbing in North America!  It will be an incredible 4 days exploring the classic spire routes of Canada’s legendary Bugaboo Mountains!

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
