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

Half Day Trips
Your snowshoe trip includes snowshoes, poles, overboots (as necessary), dark cocoa hot chocolate or herbal tea and our famous homemade power bars! Trips run 3-4 hours.

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 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.
