This trip is designed for women who want to experience the backcountry without having to haul everything they own. We'll trek in to the chalets carrying just the basic necessities in our backpacks (45-50 L is ideal). Our lodging is both stunning and at times rustic but don't worry - we're never more than 48 hours away from a hot shower! We will be hiking 5 - 10 miles a day in hilly terrain with steep ascents and descents, along rocky and uneven terrain where the weather can be unpredictable. Previous hiking experience is extremely useful, as is having a sense of adventure and a good level of physical fitness. A rating of 4 requires aerobic conditioning for at least 40-50 minutes 4-5 times a week. Additional endurance exercise (e.g. going for a 2-hour hike once a week) and/or strength training is appropriate. Rating: 1 2 3  5.
This trip has all the best parts of trekking without having to carry everything with you! Immerse yourself in this gorgeous setting, we've got all of the details covered for you. Some of the hikes are quite challenging in terms of terrain and elevation gain. This is an excellent trip for fit intermediate and experienced hikers who like moderately challenging alpine hikes.
The lodging on this trip will vary as much as the landscape. The accommodations include: a charming modern lodge, a world class front country chalet, and two historically registered backcountry chalets. Bathrooms range from ensuite hotel bathrooms with 21st century plumbing to backcountry pit vault toilets. All accommodations are shared on this trip (the frontcountry hotels and chalets will have two queen beds in each room and you'll be with several other AGC participants in bunks or rooms with two twin beds in them while staying in the backcountry chalets). Bring your earplugs and your sense of adventure!
Below is the proposed itinerary for the trip. As is true on any adventure travel trip, plans for any specific day may be modified due to weather considerations, unforeseen circumstances, new opportunities, and group interests.
