Run Esplanades Traverse

Alpine Hut to Hut Running!

If you are searching for a true high alpine running adventure in the remote mountains of BC, then join us for a 5-day HUT to HUT on the Esplanade Traverse. Enjoy a scenic helicopter flight direct to our first lodge. From here we will spend the entire week above the tree line, traversing ridges, running sweet single track, peak bagging and swimming in pristine lakes to cool off. Each night will be spent at a different lodge complete with a cozy bed to sleep in a warm sauna to enjoy. This adventure is fast pack style (hike/run) as we aim to keep our day packs light, carrying only the essentials with us. Fully catered, no one will be hungry we promise. The food is gourmet and the views are stunning. Relax in the sauna after a big day on the trails.  Rooms at each lodge are shared. So, if you are looking for a true mountain adventure come join us on this all-inclusive running getaway. This trip includes helicopter access in and out, all food, all lodging, and certified guides.) Inquire now for 2019 as spaces will fill!
