A small group of us engaged Nadine to lead us on a day hike at this most incredible of locations. It was a good move: using her extensive expertise, we were able to choose just the right hike for our group and she knew exactly how to pace us. She gave us rest stops right when we needed them, quickly... More

The hike we did to Helen Lake was just so wonderful! Joel is such a knowledgable, intelligent & lovely person...we feel very honoured that we were able to spend the day with him & hear all his fantastic stories! We actually did another hike today and we were able to tell some people what we learnt about the plants and... More

I came to Calgary to visit my friend Sophie who booked the Helen Lake hike with Joel. It was great as there was just the two of us & another gentleman from Texas called Bill - a very personal trip. The views were beautiful, the hike was challenging but not too hard & the company was excellent. Joel is so... More

We had the absolute pleasure of doing 2 wonderful guided hikes with Nadine & Joel in early July. The first hike was through the Valley of the Ten Peaks & Sentinel Pass. The scenery alone was magnificent but Nadine's enthusiasm, knowledge of the area & it's history, and her wonderful sense of humour made the hike extra special. The second... More

We had a fantastic hike with Nadine to the Valley of the Ten Peaks in early July, and it truly was a highlight of our trip. If you are coming to the Lake Louise area I highly recommend booking a hike with them as it is well worth the price. We learned so much about ecology and wildlife, and Nadine's... More

Had a wonderful day's hiking with Nadine (plus six others) to the Plain of the Six Glaciers. Challenging but not too strenuous with frequent insights from Nadine on the wildlife and other aspects that we saw along the way. The day was special and a holiday highlight of the trip to Alberta and BC.

We had an exhilarating cold drizzly hike with Nadine to Bow Glacier Falls in August 2008 when our boys were 7 and 10. We were impressed by Nadine's professionalism and good cheer, by how she pulled extra raincoats and gloves out of her backpack when it got suddenly colder and rainier!, by her stories of local animals and ecology that...

I am a local Calgarian just starting to hike in the Mountains. Nadine, thanks so much for all the information. You made it a very enjoyable day and I learned a lot as well as enjoying the amazing scenery. Hopefully I will see you again.

Thank you Joel, for two great days - we had the best time! The climb up to Castle Mountain Lookout passed in a flash thanks to all the interesting and informative stories and narrative - understanding how the fauna and flora support and depend on each other for survival was fascinating. So good in fact, that we came back for... More

My boyfriend had never snowshoed, so I wanted his first time to be amazing. Thanks to Nadine and Great Divide the entire experience for both of us was absolutely fantastic! We'll not only be back for snowshoeing next year, but look forward to guided hike opportunities this summer!
