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

What a great four day trip! The Guides Fred Amyot and Jesse Petersen were fantastic. The trip was well organized from beginning to end. Although the weather was iffy we achieved all our mountain objectives thanks to the great planning of our Yamnuska Guides. Make sure your you pack your rain gear, and winter snow pants and light jacket for... 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. Our guide was very professional, everything was done super safe and we had a great day out. There was a small misunderstanding on our bill with transportation charges... More

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...

Intro to Mountaineering with guides Jean G and Geoff O - an amazing educational experience and a ton of fun. Ask for these guys when you book. You'll have no regrets.

We were in Canada on business as a group and decided on Yamnuska as a good week to end our trip to Alberta. We were absolutely not disappointed! Our instructors, Sean, Erika and Morgan are top class teachers and took us all over the national park to great places like Bow Falls and Lake Louise to climb. I don't get... More

This was a great experience. We decided on a private guide for the 2 of us to receive the most 1 on 1 instruction possible. Great instruction and hands on experience. We got to choose the second day multi pitch and based on our ability went on Bonanza in the Ghost Range. 5.8 very fun and high:) Great exposure. Nick... More

Ice climbing course through Yamnuska exceeded my expectations. The instruction was awesome. The setting was breathtaking. There was no shortage of adrenalin rush.

The half-day ice-climbing session was easily one of THE best elements of my trip to Banff this week. Jesse is not only incredibly experienced and friendly, but also made us feel in very safe hands. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this to others - our only regret is not booking in for a whole day! Thanks again to the great... More

I hired a guide from Yamnuska for a day of ice climbing. Yamnuska guides know the best places to climb and are fully up to date on conditions in various ice climbing areas. The climb was tailored to my experience and abilities. Yamnuska provides a complete list of the gear you need as well they provide the group gear and... More
