We had a fantastic half day snow shoe with Joel on the 28th Dec. We have two children 10 and 9 years and we have never have snowed shoed before. Joel's environmental knowledge is excellent and he kept it very interactive for the kids and to everyone's comfort level. It was lightly snowing on our morning, blissfully silent, the scenery...

We went on a snowshoe trip with Joel and had a wonderful time. He was knowledgable and enthusiastic. We were novices and it was like walking (like Joel told us). The scenery is fantastic and viewed entirely differently via snowshoes. We had a great experience and would highly recommend Great Divide. We had the extra positive of just making the... More

I can't even describe just how excited we were to be snowshoeing with Nadine, especially with someone as enthusiastic as she about the nature and the history of the Rockys. It was educational yet relaxed, and the four of us had a great time. Thank you Nadine, we would recommend you to everyone!

We hiked the Valley of the Ten Peaks on 28th September 2015 with Nadine as our guide, having booked on the internet and read tripadvisor - and were not dissappointed! From the outset of the 8km return hike Nadine's enthusiasum, knowledge and safety conciousness made it a true day to remember. She ensured all of the party (a max of... More

We shared two walks, one with Nadine and another with Joel and their love of the country, its history, its flora and fauna, shone through. We were fully informed on what to expect, to wear, to carry. They adapted to our needs and our pace (two oldies) Wonderful to be away from the madding crowd and to learn so much... More

We really enjoyed hiking with Joel Hagen of Great Divide Hikes, and we’d definitely go again. We are experienced hikers who wouldn’t typically choose a guided hike. However, we wanted to hike the Valley of 10 Peaks/Eiffel Lake trail (which has a Grizzly Restriction of 4 hikers per group), so we sought out a guided hike. After researching options, we... More

Hiking with Joel from Great Divide Day Hikes was an great opportunity to learn more about Banff National Park. We had hike in the area prior and when hiking with Joel we saw the mountains, trees, animals, mushrooms and trails in a whole new way. If you are visiting the area I recommend you do a few hikes on your... More

We had excellent weather. The pace of the walk was good for me, (medium fitness senior used to hiking) and there were just five of us. Switchbacks sounded exhausting until I realised that the path was what I call zig-zags! (Don't be put off). The mountain views above Moraine Lake were stunning, and the information about what we saw was... More

What a great day with our group and Joel, our guide. The Valley of the Ten Peaks (Eiffel Lake) was a beautiful hike and was made even better with our knowledgeable and personable guide Joel. Definitely recommend doing at least one day with Great Divide. We spent 8 days hiking in the area and this hike was one of the... More

Joel with Great Divide provided a wonderful hiking experience. Our private hike in Paradise Valley was fantastic! Joel is a tremendous source of information which he is happy to share along the way making this long day hike very enjoyable. Lake Annette's beautiful serenity was a worthwhile destination in itself but we did continue on to the end of the... More
