Description

Welcome to a 20-day trip to the highest peak in Canada: Mount Logan. This time, I invite you to reach its Eastern Summit, via the King Trench route.

Mount Logan is located in the Kluane National Park and Reserve, in Yukon. Yukon is the westernmost area in northern Canada and it’s a really incredible place.

Mount Logan East Ridge has an altitude of 5.959 meters and it is considered probably the best high alpine wall for climb of all North America. During these 20 days we will go progressively gaining altitude and using different fields as base camps to rest and feed. A slow acclimatization is necessary if you want to reach the top. Moreover, prior climbing experience is required and also a good physical condition.

It will be a really enriching experience. Please, feel free to contact me and ask me any doubt you have. It will be a pleasure for me to guide you on the way up to Mount Logan main summit.

A shorter option in Canada could be this expedition to Mt. Joffre. Check it out!

FAQs

What will the conditions be like on the mountain?

The weather conditions can vary according to many reasons; the weather can be rainy, snowy, or we can find blue skies. Guides will consider the weather and travel conditions when taking any decisions. As a result, the alpine start might be earlier; it will depend on the objective.

What will the group dynamics be like?

The guides can make decisions on where the group will go and which route they will take. The reason for this is that not everyone travels at the same pace. The guides will always travel relatively to the pace of the slower group member.

Should I purchase insurance?

You should definitely purchase medical insurance. You should also purchase traveling trip interruption insurance that covers travel costs in case you need to cancel your trip due to personal reasons. On the other hand, if you climb within Canadian National Parks, you need a park pass; this pass functions as mountain rescue insurance.

Guide cancelled within 48 hrs and I was unable to find someone else and so far I’ve not been refunded. Put a small dent in my otherwise great trip to Revelstoke.

Guide was very experienced and very patient with us. We learned alot and he tried to fit in all the knowledge he could in one day, super awesome. A little tough going back and forth to get the trip set up hard to tell if the site is sketchy until you see reviews but all worked out. Ended up with an awesome day with an awesome guide. Overall pretty satisfied and thankful!
