Classic Wapta traverse in 4 days


Join me in this 4-day traverse across the Classic Wapta trail, in the Canadian Rockies. I can ensure it will be a perfect hiking and skiing combination!



4 Days



  • Enjoy a 4-day classic Wapta traverse program in Canada!
  • Join a combined hiking and skiing program in the Canadian Rockies.
  • Explore a unique wilderness area in the rugged mountains.


The Classic Wapta traverse is an amazing hiking and skiing spot located in Banff National Park, in the Canadian Rockies.

During this 4-day adventure, you will enjoy a really amazing experience around a glacial lake. The classic Wapta trail will lead us from Peyto Lake to the Great Divide, a very wild route.

Please find below a day-by-day itinerary:


During the first day, you have the opportunity of climbing and skiing in the great Peyto Cirque. We’ll spend the night in Peyto Hut.


On day two, we will start the traverse to the Balfour Hut. On the way, we will climb one or two amazing peaks.


The third day will be a very challenging day because we’ll reach the Balfour High Col. If the climate is on our side, we may make a summit attempt up to 3.285 meters at Mount Balfour. We’ll spend the last night in the Scott Duncan Hut.


During the last day, we will ski through amazing snow runs in the Bath Glacier or the Sherbrook Lake.
