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.

Full Day Easy and Moderate Hikes

Our full day regular trips happen on easy or moderate trails.  Full day trips usually last six to eight hours.

For half day hikes, or, for more challenging full day hikes, you can hire your own guide.


The first person 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.
