Had a great time learning about snoeshoeing in a comfortable setting. The guide Joel did a good job of teaching us the basics and letting us all try to lead the pack! Enjoyed the learning aspects of following animal tracks.

We went for a three hour snowshoe with Great Divide Day Hikes over Christmas break, and had an amazing time. We were halfway up a mountain, practically in the clouds, on the most beautiful day possible! Our guide Nadine was upbeat, fun, and incredibly knowledgeable. She taught us many new things about the Rockies we often take for granted (from... More

We thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of our half day hike with Joel. He was very knowledgeable and passionate about the area-- its geography, climate, vegetation and wildlife, and took us off the beaten track through forest paths, as well as to some beautiful lakes and viewpoints. The walk and talk was very interactive, with some clever demonstrations and props to... More

Joel was lots of fun and we all had a great hike! There will be lots great memories from our hike. I would highly recommend a guided tour whether you are beginner or an expert hiker. Not only did we learn about the landscape, wildlife, and vegetation, we saw breathtaking views away from the rest of the crowd, that only... More

We had a wonderful day long hike with Nadine in mid September. With Nadine, we learned all about this history and current status of glaciers in the Lake Louise area. By luck, we witnessed two amazing glacier mini avalanches during our hike on the Plain of Six glaciers and the visit to the Abott pass. We also spotted some beautiful... More

What a magical hike to Lake Consolation. Joel simply did a stunning job educating us about the forest/nature; it was one "class" that I did not want to end. I cannot say anymore. It was a fun learning experience in the forest! Who gets that - I was honoured. I cannot wait to do another hike with him, maybe in... More

Nadine, our guide, has an excellent knowledge of the place, the trails and the surrounding nature. The scenary was great and the explanation of our guide were perfect, and given in a... More
