We travelled 13500kms to Alberta all the way from Dubai and knew little about the area. Given it was October, the weather was expected to be unpredictable and our experience in dealing with wildlife was minimal.

Jenna (owner of Get Outside) was very patient and attentive to our needs. She assigned a wonderful guide, Sarah, for our private hike. Sarah had something amazing planned but since we had yet to experience the more touristy option of Plain of Six Glaciers, we headed out and had an amazing day on Lake Louise and further.

Sarah was patient and moved at our pace all throughout the hike. She shared her wonderful hot tea and snacks with us well along the way. When we mustered up the courage to go further, she obliged. Sarah also clicked wonderful pictures and overall it was a great experience.

We highly recommend booking a private hike to kick-off your journey in Banff/Lake Louise with Get Outside. Once you gain confidence, you can book more group activities or get out on your own.

We had a great time, the guide was really experienced. The hiking was in the evening, although it was dark in the end we were able to finish the trail without problems, the trail was well maintained.

we had a very good experience hiking with Susan.
She set a great pace, and during breaks telling us about some of the nature and formations around us.
Susan was always consciencous about how we were doing and planned out a route that gave us a nice mix of forest and alpine.
Highly recommend Get Outside

I did the ' fitness hiking series' and thoroughly enjoyed it. Jenna was very knowledgable about safety while hiking and local plants and wildlife along the trails in Canmore. We accomplished a fun and challenging hike up the mountain. With her guidance and expertise we captured beautiful scenic pictures of the mountains. This is my second hiking trip with Jenna's company 'Get outside' and I look forward to participating in her upcoming hike/snowshoe events. I would recommend 'Get outside' to friends and family.

We wanted to avoid the crowds, and went to C-Level Cirque in Banff. Everyone else was looking for larch trees, we chose to go in the opposite direction of the crowds. A great choice, it’s a beautiful hike, and it was a beautiful day.
Sara was our guide today from Get OUtside Adventures (Canmore). She’s knowledgeable, fun, and was well in tune the group’s needs.
And the sandwich supplied by JK Bakery (Canmore), delicious! 😊
A perfect day.

A Get Outside West Coast Trail guided hiking and camping trip in BC. Terrific guides (Thank you Sarah and Brandon), a great hiking group of 8 in total and spectacular scenery complemented by wonderful weather. Getting a reservation can be difficult but joining a group in July/August increased the chances of better weather. They cooked a great assortment of nutritious and calorie dense food, but ensured those who had restrictive diets were well looked after. Pre-trip a packing list and 6 week workout plan to prepare for the sometimes difficult physical demands was greatly appreciated.

I did the 'Discover the mountains' guided hike, a half day activity in the mountains around Canmore. Since the other hikers had to cancel their participation, it turned out to be a private hike. Jenna is very competent and professional. All in all I enjoyed the experience and the relaxed pace, although I had hoped to see any wildlife which did not happen.

This was the best trip ever! Was it strenuous, boggy, wet, and painful at times? Absolutely - but it was fully worth it! Being immersed in the rainforest and experiencing the pristine beaches filled me with awe.
The tour was extremely well organized, and the guides were superb: a helping hand was offered when needed, the route was planned daily based on weather and tides, the food they made was very yummy (we even got cake - twice) and they were fun to be around! I loved the pre-trip zoom meeting during which all our questions were addressed. Even prior to the zoom meeting, Jenna answered each question I had about gear very thoughtfully - this really helped me to prep well for this adventure! I cannot wait for my next trip with Get Outside! Thank you so much, Jenna, Susan and Sarah, for an awesome experience!

I recently completed the guided West Coast Trail trip with Get Outside Adventures and it was an incredible experience. The two guides Susan and Sarah were both extremely prepared and knowledgeable. I felt reassured and safe during the entire hike.

I would highly recommend a guided hike with Get Outside Adventures. Having a guide took a lot of the planning out of the trip and made it easier for me to enjoy hike. Get Outside planned and prepared our meals based on all participants dietary restrictions, provided a workout plan and packing list to prepare for the hike, and worked out the best route in real time during the hike based on weather and trail conditions. Because it was guided trip with other participants we got to hike with other like minded outdoor enthusiasts.

Thank you Get Outside for the incredible experience!
