We had a great day hike and learned a lot during the day. Best part was how relaxing it was since our guide "Joel" did a great job and kept us on track but not rushed. Beautiful views and memorable moments with friends.

I went on two guided hikes with Great Divide: one with Joel to Valley of the 10 peaks (Eiffel Lake) and one with Nadine to Larch Valley and Sentinel Pass. I found both Joel and Nadine to be competent 'hike leaders', outstanding nature interpreters, and very personable. I would highly recommend them for individuals or groups who: 1. Want to... More

On Sept. 13 my husband and I went on a memorable hike with Joel and four others through the Valley of the Ten Peaks at Moraine Lake. This is a whole day hike and was so very enjoyable that we were sorry when the day came to an end. We began organizing our trip months before. It was particularly important... More

Joel was a wonderful and very informative guide. He easily adapted to the interests of the various members of the group. Despite the rain and cloud, we gained a great appreciation for the flora and fauna of the Lake Louise area. Joel was very well organized, with great information provided before the hike, and good follow-up afterwards (including some great... More

Simply an outstanding experience! Nadine is not only an extremely knowledgeable guide but a master at helping folks remember important points regarding the nature and development of Lake O'Hara. As a Master Interpreter, she truly helped bring the park to life for us. Best hike ever! And we left having made a new friend!

We went with Nadine, and she did a fantastic job taking our group out to the Valley of 10 Peaks. It was maybe a bit more difficult hike than we would have been willing to do by ourselves, and it was great that the group was large enough that we didn't need to worry about bears. This was probably THE... More

We booked two moderate hikes with Great Divide and couldn't be happier. Their attention to detail, friendliness and caring nature enhances your day in such a beautiful area. Joel's enthusiasm and broad knowledge of any subject presented to him illuminated our hikes. We certainly would not have enjoyed these hikes as much as we did if we weren't with Great... More

Nadine is a great guide that is very informative, personable and does a good job at keeping pace as a group. We did the Valley of the Ten Peaks at Moraine Lake. Although it was raining it was still really fun. This hike is easy to moderate and offers stunning views of the valley of the 10 peaks and Moraine... More

I booked this hike with Nadine as a private trip. She is a wonderful guide as we stopped several times for education about the forest and native animals. That made the 9 mile hike so interesting and it was nice not to be hurried along. We took different routes going up and coming down, which she had suggested and I... More

Nadine was an absolutely fantastic guide and endless source of knowledge. She went at just the right pace and we had a great time hiking around Moraine Lake. She tailored the tour to our exact interests and abilities. We learned a ton about grizzly bears and the national parks. Nadine answered all of our tough questions. She even sent us... More
