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!

Mountain 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.

Admin was efficient for paying Communications were hit and miss. Took too long to answer questions about the day / route etc. We were beginners and the guide chose a route that was too challenging. One member of group dropped out the day before. The requested refund never even got a reply about. Let alone confirmation

Brent is an excellent guide. He was stoked to be able to share his mountain environment with others. Unfortunately he had damaged his knee so arranged for another local guide to take me out for the day. Ethan was also exceptional. Brent got in contact to ensure my day was tailored to me my experience and to ensure I got the most out of the day. I was without a car so Brent picked me up and dropped me off I had a great morning in the mountains learning new techniques for multi pitch routes and then spent the afternoon working on my trad gear placement and anchor building. Excellent instruction on gear placement and rating it. We fitted so much into the day. But always with an inclusive teaching style. I can’t recommend them enough. Both guides passionately sharing their knowledge and teaching skills, keen for their clients to learn to be more independent safer and capable in the mountains.

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.
