Description

When it comes to ice climbing, the Canadian Rockies offers some of the best spots in the world. And near the town of Canmore, there is an abundance of amazing places to ice climb. As a result, this trip lasts 12 days. And I can assure you that there is more than enough memorable and thrilling ice climbing to last you every minute of those days!

While the name might not be as recognisable as Banff or Lake Louise, Canmore is nonetheless a beautiful town in the province of Alberta. Furthermore, it is actually very close to Banff and Lake Louise, and as a result the area around it has the same beautiful attributes those other 2 places have. Canmore is also famous for being a big part of the 1988 Winter Olympics that took place in Calgary. The town hosted several events during those games, including cross-country skiing and the biathlon. With all that said, this place definitely has the pedigree for amazing winter fun!

The variety of ice falls that you will get to climb throughout this trip is staggering. There are so many that one of the biggest challenges will be decided where to start. They also range from 50 metres to 700 metres high! Thus making this trip accessible to people of all levels. However, it is important that you are in good enough physical condition to participate.

Finally, because this trip takes place in December, you will be able to enjoy ice climbing in the perfect conditions because during that month, the weather, while cold, is very dry.

So if you are an ice climbing enthusiast, or somebody who wants to give it a try, and have a lot of time to do so, send me a request. Canmore has some great ice climbing, and I would be happy to show it to 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.

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
