Had an amazing time with all the guides and guests while taking the ice evo courses. Even at the toughest parts of the course for me the guides were exceptionally professional, and patient. Pushing the limits of an individual while remaining cautious and professional is a fine line and all 3 of the guides did an amazing job. Can't wait... More

An amazing 4 days with an excellent guide/instructor. Learned way more than I expected in beautiful terrain with a great group. Yamnuska was well organized and provided information and support in a timely way. Erica was totally professional and a ton of fun. I'd highly recommend this course to anyone looking for further their skills for safe travel in the... More

I took a 2 day basic ice course along with Plus One day multi-pitch excursion at Cascade Falls, Banff. I had an AMAZING experience and simply cannot thank enough to Yamnuska and especially the guides. I wasn't prepared for the Plus One day - physically (and somewhat mentally too) to take on the challenge a multi-pitch climb poses. Contrary to... More

Well done Yamnuska! After completing the AST 1 course (Canmore classroom), I can say that it won't teach you every aspect of travelling through the backcountry, but it will equip you with the knowledge and skills to safely introduce you to avalanche terrain. Our instructor was highly knowledgeable and open to questions and our guide was approachable and seemed very... More

I traveled to Banff with a group of 13 other students as part of a pre-school trip. We set up the trip through Yamnuska, and the experience exceeded ALL expectations. I cannot express enough the professional, fun-loving culture of this group of mountaineering, hiking, climbing etc. experts. We started our week with two incredible day hikes (Sentinel Pass and Cory... More

These are great and there activities are very professional and well run. However be careful when you book because if you want to change a booking you may find that they are not very cooperative. They will also push their insurance (I believe they also own the insurance company). I booked but then got ill, so I asked to change... More

My 14 year old daughter and I recently returned from a 5-night backpack along the Rockwall in Kootenay National Park. Everything about this trip exceeded our expectations. First of all, the trip is accurately rated as "Moderate." However, we are relatively new to backpacking, so the physical aspect of the trip was a bit more challenging than we expected, but... More

We booked Yamnuska for a day of multi pitch climbing. But as the weather wasnt great in the morning we changed plans and went to Lake Louis - Back of the Lake.

I was a little hesitant to go with this company at first after reading that they train the guides who lead all the tours in the area and do ice climbing and other extreme mountain sports- However, my expectations were exceeded with their 5 day Canadian Rockies Walking Tour adventure. 7 of us of varying ability and stamina - from...
