Guided Group Hiking Trips


"You showed us plants and animals we never would have seen (or appreciated so much) on our own!"

- the Vitullis, New York

Easy and Moderate Full Day Hikes

Our full day guided group hiking trips happen on easy or moderate trails.  They usually last six to eight hours.

For half day hikes, or, for more challenging full day hikes, you can hire a private guide.


The Hiking Capital of Canada

Lake Louise, Moraine Lake and the surrounding area is often called “the Hiking Capital of Canada.”  There are well over 200 km of trails – plenty of wonderful places for you to explore!

Get a quick introduction to the mountains, or, immerse yourself in a diversity of mountain stories by doing more than one tour.  You could visit the alpine, ponder how the old-growth forest renews itself one tree at a time, and be surprised by a landscape utterly transformed by fire.

In any season we can suggest hiking trails that have something special to offer: waterfalls, wildflowers, glaciers or golden larch trees.  See our Top 9 Trails for some great ideas.


The first party to book sets the trip difficulty and destination for the day. You can join trips already set up or choose the trail on days still available.

What you need to know

 Season: June 1 - September 30.
Easy or moderate full day hikes.

 Maximum: 8 people per trip.
Minimum of 2 to run, but single travellers may choose to pay for two spaces to get a trip started.  If others later join (likely in July/Aug), then the single person will only pay for one space.
 Children younger than 6 are not accepted on group hikes.

Your trip will start in Lake Louise, or at the trailhead, depending on where you are staying.  Lake Louise is a 45 minute drive from Banff town, one hour from Canmore and two hours from the western edge of Calgary.
 We do not provide transportation.  In most cases you will need a vehicle to get to the trailhead.  In some cases there may be trails directly adjacent to your hotel.
