Meet your Guides

 

"Incredible guides - the very best in Canada, with a wonderful sense of humor and a genuine love of nature."

- the Reamans, USA
 

Joel Hagen and Nadine Fletcher

Recognized as two of the best and most knowledgeable guides in the area, Joel and Nadine have worked in the Rockies since 1991, both for Parks Canada and now as Great Divide Nature Interpretation.

They are IGA-accredited Master Interpreters - two of only eight in the Canadian Rockies.

Interpretive Guides Association Hotlink

For the IGA, they design and teach the Interpretation component of the course taken by people wanting to be certified as "professional" or "apprentice" interpretive guides.

Joel and Nadine with their Outstanding Heritage Interpreter award

They have also both received awards from Interpretation Canada for their interpretive shows and in 2004, they jointly received the first Outstanding Heritage Interpreter award at the Banff Heritage Tourism Awards - the first ever presented!

Another Heritage Tourism Award followed in 2010.  This award included a lovely video about their work.

Your safety is also their concern. They are trained in wilderness first aid and on-trail guiding.

Great Divide is insured and is licensed to operate by Parks Canada.

The thing I remember the most, out of all that we did on that wonderful trip, is Joel's guided hike. We learned a great deal and had great fun. One day we will return!

- Osborn & Bloomfield, England

 

Joel was raised on the British Columbia coast, became an amateur naturalist at the age of eight, and eventually studied biology at Simon Fraser University. Moving to Banff National Park in 1992, he found his new home to be the ultimate natural university and thinks it unlikely he will ever graduate.

"This was the perfect start to our vacation. We thoroughly enjoyed Nadine's guidance. She is so knowledgeable and I don't think there was a single question she couldn't answer. We could not have had such a great hike without her. Thanks so much! "

-the Zullos, Texas

 

Nadine began her career in the intensely creative atmosphere of the theatre. She moved from Nova Scotia to the Canadian Rockies in 1989, and since then, she has put her drama skills and love of nature together to tell the vivid stories of this landscape.
