Description

Hike through the fantastic wilderness of western Canada and see the Rocky Mountains like never before! This single-day program will take your breath away while it introduces you to the amazing flora and fauna in the Canmore region of Alberta!

The Rocky Mountains of Canada are truly a sight to behold. They are part of the American Cordillera, are the source of many major rivers, and are surrounded by abundant forests, lakes, and other mountain features that make them a unique worldwide destination.

The amalgamation of these features makes our program an exciting way to explore Alberta and the country. By exploring the historic landforms of this particular area, you get a glimpse at authentic natural beauty.

The wildlife here is unique, diverse, and plentiful. Southern Alberta is home to many popular mammal species like bears, elk, beavers, and even porcupines. Birds of prey patrol the skies, including bald eagles and red-tailed hawks, and you have a great opportunity to see loons and herons visiting during the summer.

The Bow Valley has incredible pine forests and undisturbed mountain meadows. The climate allows for the varied and rare ecosystems to thrive and flourish, and to experience this in the summer months makes it comfortable and pleasant.

Our hike and scramble will take place in the middle of all of this splendor. You will be exposed to stunning views and unimaginable panoramas; the epitome of the Canadian Rockies. You will have a great chance to see the wildlife as you tour through the natural habitat.

I am proud to call this area home, and more than happy to share my knowledge along an exciting trek through my favorite parts of the region. We can plan a short and sweet hike through some of the more relaxed routes, or we can take a more challenging path and take on a difficult rock scramble. The choice is yours.

We can design a program for all levels and abilities, so everyone is welcome on this program. Let me know what your goals are and it would be my pleasure to help you achieve them while having a fun and safe day at the same time.

Take your dream hike into the wilderness of Alberta and book this day program NOW!

I can also introduce you to the world of rock climbing in the Bow Valley. Or we can find the perfect multi-pitch route in Canmore, just for you!

My mission is for you to learn the skills to be competent and independent in the backcountry.
