We did the full day private Bird Watching hike with Joel and had an absolutely fantastic day. Joel was incredibly knowledgeable not only about the birds we saw and heard but also about the areas we visited. Not that we have heard many bird impersonations before, but Joel's were particularly impressive and very entertaining. Another plus in Joel's favour was... More

This is such a great way to hike, learn about the Rockies and meet new people! This was our favorite activity from our recent visit. Friendly, professional, interesting, breathtaking and fun! My daughter and I really enjoyed our day.

This was our first excursion at the start of our RV trip through the Rockies. We had read the excellent reviews and had therefore booked our places with Nadine prior to leaving England. Although the day was drizzly and overcast, this really did not spoil the day. Nadine was superb throughout our hike, bringing alive all we were witnessing; the... More

AMAZING! Joel's knowledge & passion for the area is intoxicating. We learned so much on our hike and I am so glad he was there to keep us safe. A true professional. Getting up close to the glaciers and learning about how they were formed and continue to move and effect the landscape was fascinating. We saw so much wildlife... More

We have taken guided hikes before, but nothing quite like this. As evidenced by the awards they've received, Joel and Nadine of Great Divide are true leaders in their industry. Nadine was our interpretive guide for a day hike from Lake Louise on the Plain of Six Glaciers Trail. Her knowledge of glaciers, the flora and fauna, and the history... More

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

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
