Explore the Canadian Rockies with a Proffesional Hiking Guide

With the right pace (for you), great stories and lots of time for photographs, you will find a full day alpine hike into Jasper's mountains fully immerse you in nature. Get above tree-line and meet the plants and animals that call the alpine home. We usually eat our lunch at the top, with breath-taking views.


I meet you at your accommodation (if your in or near the Jasper townsite), and from there I give you a few options of hikes we can do that day. Then we head to the trailhead by car. I usually go with your in your car or meet you at the trailhead. Then it is off on a private hike, where it is totally catered to your pace and interest. Along the way I will share cool info on the natural and cultural history of this amazing part of the Canadian Rockies. We find a great place along our hike for a picnic lunch (you bring your own lunch) and continue on to explore some more. The day ends when we are back in town, happy and thrilled with our day in nature!

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: I will arrange to meet you at your hotel/accomodation. I will then either accompany you in your vehicle or meet you at the trailhead (with you following in your car).

End location: If I joined you in your car, we return to your hotel/accomodation after the tour. If I drove independently, your tour ends when I deliver you safely back to your car near the trailhead.

A Recent Review of this tour

Great day hike with a great guide who knew how to get off the beaten path and up to the alpine. Not an easy walk 780 metre elevation but made easy with Kirsten's help. Thank you and would highly recommend!
