My wife and I loved our guided hike with Jack on the Skokie Backcountry Tour. Jack's easy, consistent pace allowed us to soak in the beauty of the mountains. Confident, knowledgeable, and experienced Jack never once had us feeling unsafe or unsure of our surroundings.
Jack was able to accurately gauge the fatigue (or lack thereof) in a group with ages ranging from 25-65 and schedule breaks at the perfect moments. The definite highlight of our hike was being within 30 metres of a herd of big horn sheep grazing while we had lunch. We plan on coming back to Banff and being guided by White Mountain Adventures (hopefully by Jack)!

Hi David, Thank you so much for your review! We have really enjoyed offering the Skoki Valley backcountry hiking experience again this year. It has been a joy to share this amazing nature experience away from crowds this summer. Jak has been a great addition to our team this year, we are glad you enjoyed your day together! Please do reach out to us the next time you visit the area, as we have lots of other spots we'd love to share with you. White Mountain Adventures Dennis Breymann

I have lived in Alberta all my life and in Calgary for 21 years but have never done this tour before. I can't tell you how beautiful the Bow Valley Parkway is in the fall! The colours and the mountains were awe-inspiring. Johnston Canyon was equally if not more beautiful than the parkway. Tiding the e-bikes allowed us all to enjoy the beautiful scenery without having to work overly hard to keep up. And don't forget those hills, a piece of cake on an e-bike! The hike to the lower falls is also doable for most people, easy grade so you don't have to work overly hard. Our guide was Mary, she was wonderful! She is a local to the area so shared her knowledge and love of the area with us as we were on the tour.

Thank you for your review! We will pass your kind words along to Mary :) The Bow Valley Parkway and Johnston Canyon are a great example of beautiful Banff experiences that many locals do not experience themselves, perhaps because of a perception these areas are for 'tourists'. The reality is that these places are both stunningly beautiful and easy to access with the ebikes. Sometimes us 'locals' forget about these gems as we explore other corners of this beautiful province, so thank you for your perspective! White Mountain Adventures Dennis Breymann

No reimbursement if the day of your tour you are sick. I was unable to reach them by phone or email the day before the tour, they were short of staff (I can understand their situation but I would expect the same)

Our standard cancelation policy is 48 hours for any reason, I believe bookings through trip advisor reduce this even further to 24 hours. If staff are unavailable due to after hours we still have access to email and phone messages and will honour the policy. Cancelation notices inside of 24 hours will be charged, as our guides are arranged and spots cannot be resold in such short notice. If you have sent us a cancelation notice more than 24 hours in advance, please reach out to me directly and I can process your refund. White Mountain Adventures Dennis Breymann

Tour location is as described! A 30-45 min description was offered of how the bikes worked before getting started. This tour is generally geared towards all ages and even a little bit "older" as there are limitations to sticking together closely and not surpassing the speed of 28-30km/hr. This may seem fast but we were passed by cyclers without e-bikes going up or down hills...
A lovely path to get to the Johnston Canyon, with amazing views. The accompanied path walk to the falls is a little overrated.
Overall good experience, not for an adventurous and athletic young couple. You will not break a sweat and will feel like you are in slow motion.

Thank you for your review. Our tours offer visitors to Banff National Park access to unique and beautiful outdoor experiences. Our guides strive to give our clients a deeper experience, and to help those who may not have the confidence to do so without a guide. Our programs are geared towards general public, less so towards adventure/athletic. I'm sorry the offering didn't align with your expectation. White Mountain Adventures Dennis Breymann

Jennifer took us out and it was amazing. She has a ton of knowledge about the area and pointed out lots of interesting facts along the way. This is a great trip - we got to drive to the trailhead and avoid 2 miles of what is a like a fire road. That allowed us to start at the beginning of the trail and really enjoy the hike. Beautiful larches through out the entire hike. The hike was not exceptionally strenuous - very enjoyable and incredible views and lakes. It’s off the beaten path so we avoided the hordes of crowds at all the other trails. We could truly enjoy the splendor of Banff National Park. I would highly recommend and ask for Jennifer!

Hi Meredith, Fall hiking in the Rockies is perhaps the best time of the year to hike, with the larches truly worth the trip. This beauty does tend to draw crowds, which is why we love the Skoki trails so much. Most folks will avoid Skoki because of the fire road, so we are happy to provide van access to skip the road and get right to the good stuff. White Mountain Adventures Dennis Breymann

We did the e-bike tour up Johnston canyon with an easy hike up to the lower falls. Beautiful ride, saw big horn sheep and amazing views. Favorite activity in Banff and Megan was an awesome guide!

Fabulous hike with a knowledgeable, warm and friendly guide Jack. He made us feel very valued and looked after all of our needs and level of fitness. We went on a hike in the Skoki backcountry which was quiet and so beautiful.
There were only 5 other hikers who made the day fun and memorable. Highly recommend this hike and guide.

The actual activities are good. Same experience as another is what gives it only 4 stars. Sasha was our guide. Nice, but volunteered very little info on the area. He did answer questions if asked. We take these tours to learn more about the area. Felt that was lacking in this trip.

Thank you for your review. The interpretive component of our programs is an important part of the service we provide. More than just guiding you safely through beautiful areas, our guides share their knowledge and stories of the area to help you get a deeper appreciation of our home in Banff. I'm sorry you felt this aspect of your program was lacking. We will bring your review to our next guide meeting to ensure all of our staff are reminded of the importance their knowledge brings to each client experience.

We had an awesome time with our small group of 5 + our guide, Mary. Mary gave us our lunches (delicious!) to carry, so make sure you have a small backpack. We went through all our water, so it was good to have access to a couple extras that Mary brought along. Mary also provided walking sticks - make sure you take advantage of them during some climbing and descent on the trails.

The views were amazing. The flowering meadows, the clear lakes (we even heard loons calling!) and of course the towering mountains made for a truly memorable trip. We had a fairly diverse range of abilities, even in our small group. Our guide helped keep the group together, with plenty of shade and water breaks.

I would say the ability required for this hike to be "intermediate." We hiked 15K with an elevation change of about 1000 ft. over the out-and-back route. The route went out to Ptarmigan Lake, then back a bit and out to Hidden Lake - both are well worth a visit.

We would love to visit Banff again, and most certainly would take advantage of White Mountain Adventures.
