GUIDED HIKES

Explore Central Alberta
Make the most out of your time in David Thompson Country by heading out for a day hike with one of our expert guides! Learn about the amazing natural and cultural history of the area on signature hikes through the Foothills and the Front Range of the Canadian Rockies. Catch some breathtaking scenery as you explore the quiet trails leading to dramatic landscapes, canyons and waterfalls. Enjoy the comfort that comes with a guide who knows the area’s trails, wildlife and terrain so that you can focus on hiking while we take care of the rest.

Our small group size allow us to be flexible while on tour and to slow down to enjoy the journey. We take care of all the logistics, transportation, equipment and lunch so that all you have to do is enjoy the breathtaking destinations Central Alberta has to offer.

A Few More Things To Know

We get to play outside on our tours and that means you’ll want to come prepared for the weather. Make sure to dress in layers and come prepared for the unpredictable weather we often get in Alberta. We rarely cancel tours due to weather, as long as we can have a safe adventure. You’ll be amazed at how warm we get snowshoeing at -20C or how much fun hiking in the rain can be!

Need help with your booking or have a few more questions? Stop by our Basecamp + Cafe or give us a call at 403 986-6190.
