Trek Description:

Grab your hiking boots, your CamelBak, and pack an appetite for adventure! (But also your appetite because we’re going to have some great meals and calories at altitude don’t count.) We will be horseback riding, cave diving, biking, and hiking to see gorgeous views and mesmerizing stars at night. Lake Louise! Johnston Canyon! An optional spa day! Private Airbnb hot tubs! The real MTrek is the friends you make along the way, but the Banff way is as scenic, group-oriented, and delicious as MTreks get.

Day 1 — Saturday, Aug 19

Why should you join my trek?
Because we’re going to have an adventure! When you get back to Ann Arbor, you’ll be talking about all the amazing views, the great bonding experiences, and the high octane thrills you had in Banff; all the people who went on other trips will have to talk about afterwards is how hungover they were. Have you ever seen the stars with no light pollution? Have you ever gone white water rafting? Spelunking? Let’s go, adventure and memories made with lifelong friends are out there in Banff!

Why should you join my trek?
This trek is made for the outdoor, adventure hunter looking for camaraderie in a once-and-a-lifetime experience. In Banff, you’ll make memories you can cherish for the rest of your life; you can (and will) go on a seven-day bender in Ann Arbor for a lot cheaper.
