We enjoyed one of Joel's informative and entertaining Nature presentations (Bird Brains) at the Moraine Lake Lodge. It was so enjoyable that we will return next year to hear their other presentations and also to do a guided walk or hike.

Thank you, Joel for a fantastic full day hike to the Plain of Six Glaciers. Your enthusiam and knowledge of the area was amazing. We learnt so much and had a fun and relaxing time soaking in the spectacular scenery. It was one of the highlights of our time in Canada.

My partner and I contacted Great Divide--Nadine and Joel--to arrange for an early September private guided hike, concerned that my arthritic knee might cause me to lag behind on one of their wonderful group hikes. Nadine and Joel were extremely patient with us in the weeks leading up to our hike, counseling us on the scenic glories of each of... More

During my travel through the rockies in August I joined two times a day hike with Great Divide. One with Joel and one with Nadine. Both hikes were very well organized and full of information about wildlife, plants, landscape and mountains. Great hikes in wonderful scenery with lots of fun. Nadine and Joel are doing a very enthusiastic and good... More

Recently stayed at a Moraine Lake Lodge and found Great Divide Nature Interpretation via the Moraine Lake website. Booked a full day hike with them as a surprise for my wife on our honeymoon, and decided to go for the 'fondue with a view' option as it sounded both romantic and also something unforgettable. Joel and Nadine gave me a... More

My wife, daughter and myself just spent a day with Joel hiking at Lake Louise enjoying the Larch in their full autumn glory. The sights were superb; the overall experience very rewarding. Joel's technical knowledge of the Larch and other forest ecosystems added a valuable dimension to our hiking experience. Thru Joel's extra efforts and communication style we have come... More

Just returned from a truly memorable hike of the six glaciers and it just would not have been half as interesting without Nadine as our guide: experienced, very knowledgable and, yes, entertaining. Pity won't make it for another hike soon.

Joel organized and lead the group of 8. The meeting place was easy to find and there was extra clothing and equipment for us. Amazing scenery and information along the way. Hike was easy in part and moderate in part. Lots of stopping to point out features, flora, animals etc. Bring your own packed lunch and enjoy sitting on the... More

We are not experienced hikers, but our 3/4 day adventure in the snow (in mid-September!) on Mt. Stanley was excellent. Our guide, Nadine, was fun, quite informative, and very attentive. We learned a great deal about forest fires and glaciers. Nadine is a "theatre person" and used her props to help explain her talking points about the mountain. She constantly... More

Two excellent day hikes, Nadine and Joel are very knowledgable about the ecology and wildlife of the local area. Both hikes went high into the mountains with absolutely stunning scenery and some of the best picnic spots in the world!! There was a bear on the trail ahead of us in the valley of the ten peaks so extra precautions... More
