We really enjoyed this informative canoe trip on The Bow river. Our guide Pete gave a great account of the local wildlife and the need to respect it. There were 8 of us on the tour. It lasted about 1 hour 45.

The Kootenay hike was a great intro to hiking the rockies. We learned a lot about the history of Banff and all the conservation efforts. The three hikes very doable; Vista lake was a nice surprise
