May, Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep




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!

About the guide

Based in Canmore, Alberta, I am an IFMGA- and ACMG-certified mountain guide. I also serve in the Canadian Armed Forces and am a founding partner of the Outward Bound Veterans Program.

My mission is for you to learn the skills to be competent and independent in the backcountry. I will break down complex skill sets into individual building blocks for you to learn progressively and confidently. After learning the skills, you will get to practice them in the backcountry with my guidance or that of one of the ACMG-certified guides in my team.

Brent was amazing! He gave me a great experience, taught me new techniques, made me feel safe, and catered my experience to exactly what I wanted. This was by far my favorite part of my whole vacation to the area!

Brent taught us to lead climb at a local crag. It was a great time and I’d recommend it to anyone regardless of climbing skill level. He’s open to teaching or guiding wherever you want to go.

Brent was competent and I felt had the qualifications to keep us safe rock climbing. But, compared to other guides we have had (one the day before in via ferrata) Brent seemed disinterested in us and was not as engaged in teaching. He fulfilled the requirements, but I would not rebook or recommend based on our experience.

Brent was an amazing guide. Knowledgeable, personable, safe and a great communicator. He communicated very well with us leading up to the trip and executed the trip flawlessly. Id highly recommend Brent if you are looking for an guide in the back country.

We were 3 days with Brent in the mountains. Brent is an excellent guide and knows the mountains very well. We were there where no other people were so we had the mountains to ourselves. So if Brent has time definitely book him we can highly recommend him.

This week with Brent at the Ymir Lodge was an unforgettable experience. We learned a lot inside the "classroom" and outside on the slopes. We were able to explore the mountain with the new information and test our decision-making in a guided setting. Brent did an amazing job making sure we were fed, stimulated, and safe. His tracks were complimented throughout the week and he really proved his ability to navigate through the terrain when he guided us, on our request, back to civilization instead of taking the helicopter back.

My partner and I had an incredibly memorable day climbing with Brent! His expertise is unparalleled and he tailored our trip based on our abilities. Most importantly, he made sure we were safe and enjoying our climb throughout the day. I look forward to climbing with Brent again and would highly recommend him as a guide for anyone exploring the area!
