Daily Guided Walking & Hiking Trips


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

- the Vitullis, New York

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 on one of our daily guided group walking and hiking trips.

Or, immerse yourself in a diversity of mountain stories by doing more than one tour: 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.

Half and Full Day Hikes

A half day trip could be an easy walk, an introduction to hiking or a warm up for bigger days. These trips usually last four to five hours.

It takes at least a moderate full day to get to the most spectacular places. Full day trips usually last six to eight hours.


The first person to book sets the trip length, difficulty and destination for the day. You can join trips already set up or choose a trip of your own on days still available.

For private services, you can hire your own guide.

Autumn Glory – The Secrets of the Alpine Larch Tree
Sept 20 & 27, 2014
Special rate:  $89 per adult or $59 per child 6-16.
E-mail us for more info.

In September, our alpine larch trees turn gold and create a fabulous fall feeling in the high country.  These needled trees survive and thrive where evergreens are struggling to just get a toehold!

On this moderate full day hike you will discover the survival secrets of the intriguing larch.
