This spectacular hiking expedition takes place in the Northern Purcell Mountains near Glacier National Park, British Columbia, a land at a crossroads of first nations traditional territories. This trip will take place on the traditional territories of the K’tunaxa, Okanagan, Sinixt and Secwépemc peoples. The pristine environment requires the utmost respect. We will be practicing leave no trace camping all throughout the trip, and honouring the land.

During this alpine traverse, you can expect to hike 5-10 km per day on uneven terrain with moderate elevation gain and loss. It will be a self-supported trip, you will carry your pack with all necessary personal and group gear and food. Your pack will likely weigh between 25 and 35 kg, depending on your specific gear requirements. The goal is to trek each day, arriving at a scenic campsite where we will set up our tents and enjoy the evening.

The Dogtooth Traverse is a suitable expedition for any reasonably fit and adventurous hiker with previous experience on a multi-night hiking trip.
