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!

Our guide was Jason (not Jeff) and although he was a great guy, he appeared to not be very familiar with the location in which we skied. I was also surprised by the fact that he never asked us about our skiing abilities or the type of terrain we hoped to ski. Due to the avalanche conditions and snow cover, we were in terrain where the trees were too tight to ski and so we skied down an avalanche path (with minimal hazard from above) that was quite steep with a lot of exposed vegetation and small cliff bands. For two of the three of us, this terrain was at the edge of our comfort zones and so the ski down was not very enjoyable. Afterwards, I couldn't help wondering if we had been asked about our interests and skiing level, if we might have found lower angle terrain with a less dense forest cover. Having said all this, once Jason realized I was in a place I was not happy about, he was very attentive to assisting me through the terrain. In summary, the three of us paid a lot of money for a ski tour that was not great and we wondered whether it should have been cancelled if this was the best terrain to be found given the conditions.
Wonderful expedition in the Rockies! My guide Brendan taught me loads on ice climbing technique and now I feel reasonably confident to ice climb again! Word of warning though, it's very hard and the guide will push you to your limits if you have only done little bits of ice climbing in the past. I climbed on the inside of a literal ice palace at one point! I am happy that I did this course and I'd recommend it to anyone wanting to really test what they are made of on the ice!
Jeff was a great teacher and learned way more than I expected. Will definitely go again.
Can someone please contact me regarding this tour. I have emailed explore-share and have also spoken to the tour guide regarding a refund. I have tried calling via a WhatsApp but couldn’t get through. Jeff Bullock has assured that you reply quickly and has also assured us a full refund due to extreme cold weather forecast. Please respond. Helen Pascoe
Nolan was awesome! Great teacher and kept spirits high even in the rain!
