FIND YOUR ADVENTURE

Explore Central Alberta

Hibernation is boring, winter never is. Play in the snow, catch up with friends and make the most out of this amazing season. In case you were wondering, we love winter!

Winter Tours work on your schedule. Pick a date, bring a few friends along or book a private tour and head out to explore Central Alberta with your guide. Try an evening of snowshoeing in the city or join us for a full or half day tour exploring David Thompson Country, from the ice bubbles to frozen waterfalls and canyons.

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 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!

Come For A Visit

We're located in Capstone at Riverlands, near the trails of Waskasoo Park and Downtown Red Deer. Stop by to plan your next adventure, rent the gear you need and grab a bite with friends. 

While you're in the neighbourhood make sure to check out some of our great neighbours like Wild Brewing Co, Purearth Organics, DOSE Coffee and Troubled Monk Brewery.

You'll find us at #10 5579 47 Street in Cronquist Business Park.
