Highlights

 
     

    This is a classic to discover the Canadian Rockies. The route from Moraine Lake to Lake Louise is unique because it is very varied. We will enjoy off-trail hiking, scrambling, crossing 2 glaciers and some easy use of rope. This is open to intermediate-advanced hikers. We will use crampons but it is very easy.

    I like this trip because we traverse the spine of the highest peaks of the Canadian Rockies. The scenery is really beautiful. In addition, we pass through nice and renowned huts (Elizabeth Parker Hut and Abbot Pass Hut).

    Moraine Lake is intriguing as it is in the valley of the ten peaks. So you have a big wall of huge peaks just in front of you.

    Does this trip sound interesting? Then contact me and we’ll leave together! If you choose to come in the winter, we can go backcountry skiing!

    What People are Saying about Jeff Bullock

     

    My guide was Christian from the same company (vs Jeff). I was thrilled with the service, friendliness, knowledge, and professionalism. We went to Sunshine Slab near Banff to sport climb for a half day. We managed to get a lot of memorable climbs in a short amount of time. I would gladly use these guys again.

    Jeff was so kind to the kids, he encouraged and motivated our 12 y/o eldest, and was tolerant and patient with our 9 y/o young one. Extremely recommended for families. We had much fun on the Banff cliffs.
