The company confirmed the pick up time and the small bus arrived on time at my hotel. We stopped to take photos of Castle Mountain. We had 4 hours at Lake Louise. There wasn't enough snow to try snow shoes so instead I borrowed ice grippers. I had a wonderful time walking on the lake to a frozen waterfall on... More

Did this tour first week of April. Weather was great and had quite a lot of ice on the trail. Kids loved having their own wearable flash light. We had a group of 16 all together. We always had a guide in front and one at the back. For a family with young kids, we never felt rushed which was... More

Wonderful walk at night in the woods up Johnson Canyon. The lights on the waterfall were beautiful. The stars seemed so close. Spent Sunday morning trekking up Grotto Canyon. What a trip! The pictographs were fascinating. Great way to spend a morning!!

I did this trip the first week of March 2015. We had a "manager" giving us the tour. I was kind of surprised with her tact. She openly made references that if we did not tip her, she would not eat dinner due to being a "ski bum". On the ride there we were driving fast as she told us... More

As this was our first time on snowshoes, Sarah and Jess made the experience fantastic! The wonderful scenery, their observations and knowledge of the area and wildlife, their great hot cocoa and maple sticks, and their concern that each person was comfortable made this a wonderful and not-to-be forgotten afternoon in the Canadian Rockies.

I went to lake louise and the johnston canyon with them. I was pleased with the friendliness of the guys working there especially Annika and Jordan who took us to the canyon. The visit to lake louise leaves plenty of time for discovery around the lake. However I would be happier if the canyon visit was a bit longer allowing... More
