At Skadi Wilderness Adventures, our priority is to ensure you enjoy the most rewarding Canadian Rockies experience possible in comfort and safety. If you have any questions that are not answered here, please contact us and we will be happy to help you.
Meeting Place and Time
We will meet you in Nordegg at an agreed time the morning of Day 1. The usual meeting place is the Nordegg Lodge or Shunda Creek Hostel or Cheechako Cabins, where we can enjoy a coffee together while going over trip details. Parking and pre-trip accommodation is also available here.
Transportation to and from the trail’s starting point is provided by Skadi Wilderness Adventures and is included in the cost.
Please ensure you have your hiking equipment with you, as we will depart directly from here.
Accommodation and Meals
On the trip, you will stay in rustic backcountry cabins. We provide all meals and trail snacks from lunch on Day 1 to lunch on the final day of the trip. Please specify any special dietary requirements you have at time of booking so we can incorporate them into our menus. A dietary surcharge may be added to the standard.
Pre- and post-trip accommodation in Nordegg is not included. For your convenience, we can arrange accommodations in Nordegg, subject to pre-booking and availability. If combined with a booking with us Cheechako Cabins (www.cheechakocabins.com) will offer overnight pre and post trip accommodation. You are also free to make your own arrangements.
Any excess luggage you do not need on the trail may be left at your accommodation or our office in Nordegg.
