* Climb the highest mountain in Canada!

* Enjoy a challenging 3-week mountaineering adventure.

* Discover the remote and awe-inspiring Mount Logan.


Mount Logan (5,959m) is the tallest peak in Canada. That fact alone makes it a glorious mountain to climb.

This 3 week adventure is not your typical ascent because not only will we be climbing, but we will also be spending quite a bit of time skiing on the mountain as well. Thus making this expedition a wonderful and adventurous journey up and down Canada’s most majestic peak.

During the climb we will be taking the King Trench route, which is considered the easiest, and least technical of all of the routes to the summit. However, even the easiest route on Mount Logan is challenging. As a result, all participants on this trip must have previous mountaineering and mountain skiing experience. They should also be in excellent physical condition.

When it comes to the climb itself, we will be ascending at a comfortable pace, and will move in accordance with weather conditions, which at times can be quite harsh. We will be setting up five different camps during the climb, which will give you proper time to acclimatize. Each camp will provide you with uniquely incredible views of not only Mount Logan, but the vast surroundings of the Kluane national park reserve, where the mountain is located. Finally, from the fifth camp we will make our way to summit. From the top, you will get an unforgettable panoramic view of what will feel like the entire Yukon territory!

Even though Mount Logan is the biggest peak in Canada, it feels even bigger when you’re climbing it or skiing down it. And when you reach the top, it feels even bigger still. So send us a request, and enjoy this amazing 3 week adventure to the summit of this amazing mountain.

Would you like to enjoy another climbing trip in the Canadian Rockies, but don’t have a lot of time? If so, I can also lead you to the summit of Mount Athabasca on this 2-day expedition.

What will the conditions be like on the mountain?

Conditions in the mountains vary widely due to many circumstances. Weather will often dictate the decision of the guide i.e. rain, snowfall, blue skies. The guides will make decisions with the weather and travel conditions in mind. This may require an alpine start to the day that typically is around 4 AM but may be earlier depending on the objective.

What will the group dynamics be like?

Not everyone travels at the same pace we will always travel relative to the pace of the slower group member. The guides reserve the right to make decisions on where the group will go and which route the group will climb.

Should I purchase insurance?

It is highly recommended to purchase medical insurance (if applicable) and traveler’s trip interruption insurance to cover travel costs and trip costs in the event you have to cancel your trip due to personal illness or injury, family emergency or other personal conflicts. If climbing within Canadian National Parks, the purchase of a park pass is required and this acts as mountain rescue insurance if needed.

What people are saying about Jeff



The back country is just over that ridge - just right there. You need a guide to access it safely though, and Jeff knew exactly where to go and what to do to create a fantastic - first time splitboarding experience for me. I've been to Lake Louise so many times, now I've seen a little of what is AROUND Lake Louise and my mind has been expanded. Will be back for more adventure for sure!



Excellent service, Guides are very knowledgeable and safety is #1


Really enjoyed our time with our guide, Troy. 5/5 Experience! Highly recommend.



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.



Nolan was awesome! Great teacher and kept spirits high even in the rain!
