Auyuittuq Traverse - Faster Pace

Auyuittuq Traverse - Faster Pace

This Traverse will give the hiker the chance to hike Auyuittuq from its southernmost trailhead at Overlord, to the northern terminus at North Pang Fiord.  We ascend the Weasel River valley to the height of land, then explore the Glacier Lake region with remarkable Mt. Asgard before completing our hike down the Owl R. Valley. This trip is 2 days shorter than our ‘normal’ traverse, so participants should be keen and efficient hikers.

“In that remote area, with rivers to cross I was very happy to be with experienced guides who could deal with these challenging situations” J. Watson, Canada
