Description

Canada is a synonym of beauty and wilderness. Dare to leave behind all the stress of the big cities and modernity, and venture into the wild and pristine land of this beautiful country. Join this mountaineering adventure in the Canadian Rockies, and reach the summit of one of its most impressive peaks, Mount Athabasca.

Mount Athabasca (3,491 m) is one of the most accessible ascents in the Rockies. It is located right next to the Banff-Jasper Parkway. So from that entrance, we can reach the summit in just one long and exciting day.

What’s more, this splending mountain is surrounded by an enchanting forest of pine trees. Thus, creating a green wave of fresh scents and bright colors, in which this colossal peak stands out for its singular beauty.

Also, Mount Athabasca lies at the heart of the Columbia Icefields, a vast territory of glacier ice and dazzling sceneries. Therefore, it offers the perfect combination of snow and ice climbing.

Moreover, some of the most stunning glaciers in the country are in the area, such as Athabasca and Saskatchewan. Hence, making it a real treat for the eye and the senses, that you cannot miss.

If you are up for this mountaineering adventure, just request to book this trip. One of our expert and certified guides will guide you to the summit of Mount Athabasca. And share with you the best spots in this marvellous place.

But, if you’re looking for a different type of adventure also in the area, you can check this Bugaboo Spire rock climbing (NE Ridge), 3 days.
