We had a great time on our canyoning trip with Chris! He was very helpful and patient with us. It was just our family of 4 and the weather was perfect. The hike in to the canyon was a little more than we bargained for but we made it fine (it was a breeze for our twenty something daughters of course). The wet suits were much appreciated as the temperature dropped as you got higher up in the canyon and the water was VERY cold. We all had hiking boots on which was helpful but be prepared for them to be soaked as you will be landing/sliding in to waist deep water. Definitely a fun bucket list activity!

We had a great time canyoning at heart creek! Our guide, Pablo, was absolutely fantastic. He gave us really clear instructions and guidance and told us so much about the trails/canyon around us throughout the day.

The canyoning was great fun and varied and we had the opportunity to practice away from the canyons before starting, which was super helpful. The views and surrounding area are also wonderful!

If you are in Canmore/nearby, definitely consider canyoning! We had never done canyoning before this activity. Would definitely go again!

Zach was a wonderful guide and we really enjoyed our experience. The area and canyon were beautiful and the rappelling down the waterfall is a highlight of our trip

This was an absolute highlight! Pablo is not only a super friendly and patient guide, but he also gave us an enormous amount of knowledge about the surrounding nature and his experiences. And of course the rappelling and sliding down was great fun!

We knew very little about canyoneering going in. The guide was awesome and helped us through every repel including an amazing waterfall. We were able to take all the time we needed and we always felt safe. Best day ever!

This was an AMAZING experience. Our guide was incredible. The hike in and canyoning out was beautiful. Perfect trip for first time canyoning/rappelling, even if you are afraid of heights. I always felt completely comfortable with the knowledge of my guide. This is a trip you will not forget and highly recommend it!

Pablo did a great job of making it fun for my teens and helping a near 50 nervous mother down the canyon. I will mention the hike up is a little more than I bargained for, but I made it.

Fantastic experience, our guide Zack was extremely helpful, supportive, and ensured we were safe for the entire tour. The rappels start off small, so you can get a feel for it. We were coached through each dissent with the do's and don'ts, which made everything a real breeze.

There is a bit of walking/light hiking from the meeting point to the start of the canyon but well worth it! You have to go up before you can go down.

Kris was a fantastic tour guide, he was very patient with me as I had never done canyoning before and I was a little apprehensive. He was informative, friendly and an absolute joy to spend the day with. This canyoning itself was great even for a first timer with terrible balance skills. It was an incredibly fun day and I'd highly recommend it to anyone.

Our family had a great time on our first canyoning experience. We splurged for this activity and it was worth it. Mark, our guide, was friendly, fun, knowledgeable, and kept us all safe. My teenage son actually smiled for the first time our entire vacation and had a blast. We were so lucky to have a warm summer day which made getting in the cold cold waters refreshing. We were literally in the middle of nowhere and had the canyons to ourselves. The drive out to the canyon is a bumpy one and the initial hike up is a good elevation climb. Wear good hiking shoes and be prepared to be wet head to toe all day. At times, it was challenging, but we felt like bad a$$es at the end of the day.
