Additional Information

On this 7-day hiking adventure we follow the world-famous and challenging W route, traveling from our comfortable base camp to two unique refugios carrying only our daypacks. We'll hike to the foot of the granite spires that give this park its name; explore the shorelines of Nordenskjold, Pehoe and Grey Lakes, climb deep into French Valley, get to know the local flora and fauna and even get up close and personal with a calving glacier. Each night we'll take shelter in each night's lodging and share the day's stories over hearty and delicious meals. It's a week-long adventure that should definitely be on your bucket list.
