My 13 year old was looking for something beyond just a beginner climb - Kevin gave her a great half day of instruction - by the end she was doing things she never tried before. Great job!

I cannot recommend this tour enough. Despite the warnings of Thunderstorms, Sarah Murphy, our guide, took us to the places in the Rockies that somehow weren't affected by T-showers. We had 6 wonderful hiking days exploring the Rockies. Our guide was absolutely wonderful. The accomodation was perfect.

We used guide help from Yamnuska Mountain Adventures. His name is Richard and we strongly recommend this gentleman for beginners. We didn't make any special physical preparations but were able to make it =) We also forgot sunscreen and medicines from hotspots, which Richard kindly provided. I would like admit a great organization, exciting plants intro, interesting talks, backstopping us... More

Despite the questionable weather we had an amazing experience. I could not recommend these guys enough. The instructors were totally professional, friendly and encouraging. The whole experience was unforgettable, the variety of climbing we did in three days and the outstanding views... If you want an adventure then Yamnuska is who you should call.

Designed for intermediate to advanced rock climbers, this course was expertly guided by Darren Vonk and Jean Gamilovski of Yamnuska Mountain Adventures. One day of skills review and two days of multi-pitch classic rock routes was a fabulous, satisfying and thrilling experience. The guides are professional, patient, safe and committed to providing a superior outdoor adventure for their clients. This... More

Six amazing days on the Wapta Icefields with 3 guides. Large group 18 but the ratio was kept to 6:1 which was definitely sufficient. Guides went the extra mile to spend time with the group during the day and at night to answer questions. Food was amazing. Guides were flexible with the day to day plans to ensure people achieved...

Awesome instructors, excellent instructor - student ratio (we took a group of 20 youth and 4 adults climbing), and overall a very exciting experience! I'd love to do more mountain climbing!

Recently I attended a 6 day Intro to Mountaineering Course with Yamnuska. Firstly I am not an experienced climber, rocks, ice or otherwise. But I now live in the Rockies and want to spend my time in them instead of looking at them from my deck in Cranbrook, BC. I couldn't be more happier with the trip. Guides Barry Blanchard... More

Very disappointed with the Yamnuska. They were quick and friendly to get your business, but as soon as the sale was done, they were no longer available.

An amazing tour guided by Taichi Ishizuka and Hiro Shinozaki. Flawless detailed arrangements made this a memorable 10 day trip. The trip highlight was the five day (1 rest day) trail walk of the Shinetsu Trail. An 80 km ridge hiking trail that runs along the (beech and oak forested)Sekida Mountain range which divides the Nagano and Niigata prefectures in... More
