Day 1 - Arrival & Bow Hut
Pre ascent, the day will start off in Lake Louise. Here the guide will run through the days to come, where waivers will be signed and equipment will be checked.
To assist you in arriving smoothly at Lake Louise
You can find our meeting location here.
Once the equipment has been checked a convoy to the Bow Lake Car park where there will be a quick organisation of transport, with a vehicle to be left at the Peyto Lake parking lot, for the journey home.
It is approximately a 4-5 hour scenic ascent up through to the Bow hut. Passing over the cold water creeks from the glacier, hiking through some beautiful forest, and breaking into the Moraines as you commence your final ascent up to Bow Hut. It is certainly a great way to build some excitement for the next couple of days.
Once you have reached the hut, the next task is to put your feet up, get yourself accustomed to the living quarters, as your guide fires up supper.
Day 2 - Peyto Hut
The approach to Peyto hut is approximately another 5-6 hr hike on Glaciated terrain, approximately 7km in distance.
After breakfast is served and your bellies are full, a debrief of Glacier travel will be given by your guide. This is so that you are aware of how to move carefully and efficiently through the terrain.
Once your guide has taken you through the basics, you will commence your journey to Peyto hut, strolling past iconic peaks, such as St Nic, Mount Rhondda & Mount Habel.
*NOTE* by choosing the Add a peak, there will be more elevation gained, most likely adding another 3-4 hours to the day.
After a gorgeous scenic walk, Peyto will await your arrival. As you once again get accustomed to your new surroundings, the guide will fire up the kettle for a warm cuppa, and dinner will be served soon after.
Day 3 - Descent day
After a lie-in and a slower morning than the previous morning, this gives you an opportunity to take in the surrounding peaks before beginning your descent toward Peyto Lake, to your final destination.
A roughly 10.5km descent, to the lake, with an elevation loss of 580m.
