About Active by Nature
Active by Nature leads walking tours & Nordic walking tours, & guided hikes, year round, in the heart of the Canadian Rockies, Canmore. Walks are conducted on the town's recreational trail system, featuring spectacular scenery and opportunities for wildlife viewing. The initial focus on the Nordic walks is developing the skills of Nordic walking. Think of it as cross-country skiing without the skis! This activity TURBO-CHARGES a walk, turning into a workout that targets all your core muscles as well as your arms and legs. Nordic walking burns mega-calories compared to just walking while the use of poles also promotes great posture, off-loads stress from hips and knees and provides exceptional stability on all terrain. There is lots of opportunity to explore and learn about this unique mountain town. Outings are between 1 hr 30 min & 2 hours. Age 12 & over. Hikes & snowshoe hikes on select trails in nearby Kananaskis Country are also scheduled on a monthly basis.

I hiked Chester Lake trail with Mandy as my guide. What an amazing day we had! It was the first time I had hired a guide and I would highly recommend booking with Active by Nature. Mandy knows the trails very well and makes you feel at ease. She is very experienced and you will not be disappointed with any aspect of your adventure. I hired a guide for some trails in Yoho and I wish I would have booked Mandy instead. Her rates are way better and she is such a kind soul. I will definitely be booking more hikes with Active by Nature.

Thank you Mandy, your Urban Polling session was great. I am a stroke survivor; this training has given me another option for my rehabilitation. My arm movement is more fluid, and my walking gait has improved tremendously. I want to thank you for your time and patience. I would definitely recommend this for stroke survivors in the same situation as me. Best regards, Denis Hamel.

In July, 2021 we reached out to Mandy to ask her to guide us on a hike of Ha Ling Peak. She met us at the trailhead and gave us great tips how to use our poles to make the hike easier. We proceeded up to the lookout where Mandy provided us with information about the history of the mountain's name and improvements. After a rest and a snack, we hiked back down again using our poles based on Mandy's recommendations. Mandy is knowledgeable and caring and fun to spend time with!

My husband, 12 year old son and I did the Grassi Lakes hike with Mandy and it was a wonderful experience. The hike was just the right length for the time we had and the scenery was beautiful. Mandy shared interesting information about the area, took some great pictures of us and even served hot chocolate part way through. It was a lovely time.

My fiancé and I had a great time snowshoeing with Mandy. It was our first experience snow shoeing in the rocky mountains, and Many was a terrific guide. Mandy was very enthusiastic, and respectful of COVID health guidelines. She also gave us great tips for using our snow shoes. We went to Hogarth Lakes for a 2-hour tour, and it was excellent. I would highly recommend going on a tour with Active by Nature!
