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

You cannot go wrong with booking a hike with these folks. My husband and I had already been snowshoeing with Nadine previously. We knew that booking a hike with her on our summer trip was a priority. Nadine gets five stars for literally everything :) The hike is informative and fun. She had extra gear for people who needed hiking... More

My family went on a guided hike with Joel around Emerald Lake, and it was an enjoyable and informative walk. Joel is passionate about the wildlife of the area, adding humor and insight to things that would have otherwise gone unnoticed if we had gone on an unguided hike. He pointed out edible wild blueberries (which were delicious) and explained... More

So glad we booked a hike with Great Divide. Joel was personable and informative about wildlife, geology, plants. He had engaging way with both kids and adults. We had a great day with him and especially appreciated his thoughtful choice of hike for our family at Bow Lake and waterfall.

Great Divide Nature Interpretation with Joel and Nadine is an excellent fun way to take a guided hike through the spectacular scenery of the Canadian Rockies. Nadine took us on hikes that fit the pace of our small group and provided expert and fun information on the flora, fauna and geology of the area. Light spirited but dedicated to education,... More

My husband and I just returned from our second trip to the Canadian Rockies. Wanted to do things we hadn't done on our earlier trip, and a guided hike 'off the beaten path' was at the top of the list. Our hotel (Post Hotel) highly recommended Great Divide and they were spot on! We hit the jackpot with Joel, who... More

I am so pleased that my husband convinced me that it was a good idea to book a guided hike on our recent trip to Banff and I am even more pleased that we booked it with Great Divide! We had fantastic day with Joel who obviously loves what he does and where he does it. He was informative, funny... More
