Guided Snowshoeing
"Thank you for a truly memorable snowshoeing experience.  We loved the light-hearted insight into this beautiful landscape and its inhabitants."
- the Wards, UK

Deep Snow, Deep Insight

The quiet beauty of winter in Lake Louise & Banff National Park is a delight to explore on snowshoes! Swishing through fresh powder, you feel your heart beat and suddenly realize how peaceful it is.

You notice how the snow acts as a canvas, recording the tracks of snowshoe hares, pine martens and even the occasional lynx. Your guide reveals hidden secrets too: beneath the snowpack are hibernating grizzly bears and a vibrant winter ecosystem fueled by mice and voles.

Once per month we run winter specials.

Your trip includes snowshoes, poles, overboots (as necessary), dark cocoa hot chocolate or herbal tea and our famous homemade power bars!
