We were a family of 5 with three children between 8 and 15. We were delighted with our tour and our guide Sam. Sam was infinitely patient, we were all novices, but we had a great time despite the difference in ages and skill levels. White Mountain Adventures does everything they can to make sure you have an amazing experience. Do not hesitate to book them for their tours.

What a day! This was so much fun and I can't stop telling people about it. We had Sam as our guide and he was incredible - we started off getting a good briefing about snowshoeing (which you think is easy, it is.. but it's the "getting out of trouble" that Sam explained incredibly well). As we ventured down into the bowl, he made sure to keep us educated about the snowfall, the trees and animals around us. He explained to us how to spot potential avalanches and why they happened. We understood the group and it's limitations and gave us a ton of breaks when we needed them. When it was time to play - Sam was great at giving us areas where we would be able to play in deep snow, jump off ledges, we had some snowshoe races .. it was a blast. Fantastic trip, AMAZING guide and a fun afternoon. We were spent by the time we got to the gondola to go back down. Great day - thanks Sam!

We booked this activity online but first had questions and received a response right away, which was amazing considering it was a Sunday. The company was very accommodating right from the beginning. Our tour guide Sam, met us a the designated pick up on time and taking all the necessary COVID 19 precautions. The hike up the canyon was stunning, we had it all to ourselves Because of COVID, the road is blocked and you can only get through with a tour guide, unless you want to walk the 6k in from the gate. Our guide Sam was friendly and knowledgeable, not only about the canyon, but the entire surrounding area, and more! It's a total of about 3k and totally worth it, you must see and this company will be sure to take care of you and make your experience memorable while doing it!

Thank you for your review, Tony. We are doing our best to continue to serve our clients during the pandemic, including keeping our offices staffed 7 days a week, and of course keeping our clients safe from any hazards, including COVID. We are fortunate to be able to provide access to Johnston Canyon, as Parks Canada has elected to close road access supporting physical distancing in this otherwise well visited location. We look forward to seeing you again on a future adventure here in Banff.

Thank you for your review. Johnston Canyon is a must-do nature experience when visiting Banff at any time of year. Winter is my favorite time to visit, with the frozen waterfalls and blanket of snow adding to the frozen silence of the surrounding forest. Please reach out to us again when you are next in Banff, and you can request Adrienne to guide you again.
