What a great morning! Nadine took me and my 18yr old daughter along with another fellow out into the backwoods, on a combination of preset and make-our-own trails. We saw a bunch of different tracks: coyotes, hares, lynx, small furry things; scratch marks of wapiti, bears; learned about snow, grizzly bears. We saw a snowshoe hare bolt and followed it.... More

We went with Joel and six others (strangers) on a hike to the Valley of the Ten Peaks at Morraine Lake. Joel is very knowledgable and informative and was inclusive of all of us and made sure he had one on one time with everyone in the group. The scenery on this hike was spectacular and beautiful and we learnt... More

Our family went on a hike to Sherbrooke Lake with Great Divide Hikes and we were so glad we did. My family is not the most adventurous group but our guide Joel made us feel very comfortable. The logistics were easy and the interpretation that the guide gave along the way really made the day. I would highly recommend this... More

Our one day guided tour with Joel to the "Valley of Ten Peaks" was one of the highlights of our trip to the West of Canada: We learned a lot, we saw a lot and we had lot's of fun! Our 2 boys, aged 9 and 13, loved the tour too. Beate (Germany)

Today was amazing! We live in HK and wanted to really explore this lovely country. We were lucky enough to find Joel and get the snowshoeing adventure in. Wow amazing.... And the additional information about the trees, glaciers, wildlife from Joel made the event even more spectacular then just the scenery. It was also a nice touch when Joel pulled... More

Can a guide alone make a trip...yes. Nadine was like Bill Nye the Science Guy - but for snow. I tried a number of different varieties of snow shoeing while in Alberta from heli snowshoeing to remote long distance snowshoeing, to guided backcountry snowshoeing. But the most educational and rewarding was my snowshoe with Great Divide Nature Interpretation. Under Nadine’s... More

My brother and I are pretty adventurous people and wanted to go off the beaten path and snowshoe in areas where few travel. Joel took us near the Crowfoot Glacier and we had a blast! He's so knowledgable about the area. He spoted lynx tracks and taught us about the different types of flora and fauna (bc we were so... More

We had a fantastic time on our private snowshoeing tour with Joel and it was definitely one of the highlights of our trip. He totally involved our kids who are 9 and 11 with his entertaining and informative facts and they loved every minute. The scenery was amazing in itself, but having Joel as a guide with his enthusiasm, wealth... More

We enjoyed a marvelous outing with Joel as our guide. The scenery was fantastic & the theme for our adventure was "grizzly bears". We learned so much - not only about snowshoeing, but also about grizzlies - their habitat, habits & the risks relative to their long-term survival in the area, Joel is a wealth of information & certainly gave...

We'd never snow-shoed before our three-hour private tour with Nadine. She was an awesome teacher-- we found the snow-shoeing to be easier than we expected, even when we were forging our own trails. While the instruction on technique was good, the rest of the tour was a complete (and pleasant) surprise. Nadine stopped us a several points to talk about... More
