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.

I am very pleased with Explore-Share! This was my first international climb, and the communication and response time were great. Herbie is a very skilled guide and very efficient. The entire booking process & payment was smooth. I will definitely use Explore-Share again. Thank you.



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.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



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.
