Peter L.

Calgary, Alberta, Canada

Imagine hiking to an alpine meadow full of beautiful wildflowers, cresting a mountain ridge with an awe-inspiring view, or standing on the edge of a majestic alpine lake watching a trout rise to feed on the surface.

In my travels around the globe to hike, backpack and fly fish, I've come to appreciate guides with local knowledge. As a born and raised Calgarian, the Foothills and the Rocky Mountains of Southern Alberta have been my local playground for over 40 years—and it's my passion to share my love of this area with others.

I'm a Hiking Guide with the Association of Canadian Mountain Guides, an Apprentice Interpretive Guide with the Interpretive Guides Association, and an active member of the Angling Outfitters and Guides Association of Alberta. As a certified guide, your safety and satisfaction are my highest priority.

To create a truly memorable experience, I believe in a collaborative tour planning process. So let's get started creating your ideal adventure!

A Recent Review of this guide

Peter was a phenomenal tour guide, both knowledgeable in the parks history but also in safety and how to hike in the safest way possible. On top of all of this, he was a great resource in helping us find additional hikes and other activities that we could do in the surrounding region. We truly enjoyed his expertise and if we are in the area again, we know who to give a ring.
