Discover the Canadian Rockies with a Local Guide

A great introductory hike that is paced for all ages. This 3 hour hike leaves lots of time for exploring the secret lives of plants, wildlife and Jasper history. Want to gain a bit of elevation, I can find you the right trail. Want a flater more casual walk, no problem. A lovely experience in the most spectacular park in the Canadian Rockies.


I meet you at your accommodation if you are in or near to the Jasper townsite. If you are not near the townsite we will find a suitable place to meet and then decide which trail to head off on from that meeting place.
We will walk at a pace suited to you and stop for photos and interpretive stops.
