Hiking in Banff can be challenging enough at times. But if you are really after an activity that is going to push you to the limit, mountaineering is for you. You shouldn’t just jump right into it though; you’re going to need a guiding hand. It is why signing up for mountaineering courses is a good idea to introduce all of the techniques required to climb safely.

If you would like to tone up, lose weight or just get fit, and you are sick of being stuck in the gym, mountain climbing is the activity for you. You will increase your fitness, feel great and love all the mountains along the way. Generally good fitness is required, previous hiking experience and or climbing experience is recommended.
