Joel took us on a most interesting adventure of wildness. He is very insightful about the subject matter. He was always concerned for the well-being of all of us throughout the entire time. He had all the equipment, delicious snacks, and awesome stories to share. I would come back and explore other trails with him!

We had a three hour snowshoe hike with Joel around Lake Herbert and in one word it was AWESOME! Joel is very knowledgeable about the history of the area and the wildlife which made for an informative fun filled afternoon. The views were knockout and the hot chocolate and homemade chocolate biscotti that Joel brought were simply delicious! We had such a great time, we booked a second snowshoe two days later for a hike around Lake Louise. Again Joel did not disappoint - it was another spectacular afternoon and we only wish we had enough time for a third hike!

My husband and I had a fantastic half-day private snowshoe adventure with Joel. Not only was the landscape around Lake Louise stunning, and snowshoeing loads of fun, but Joel helped us see the nature around us with open eyes. There is so much to see if you know what to look for, and we have had enjoyed using the information passed on to us as we have continued our travels through the Canada. Highly reccommended.

It was a wonderful experience going on this snowshoeing hike with Joel. We were a private group and had such great fun making snow angels lined up on a slope, walking through the beautiful snow covered forest, crossing a railway track and taking our time making our way back beside the Bow River. We were amazed with the knowledge Joel shared about the creatures that survive in this harsh climate, the beaty of the snow flakes up-close, and everything else on this tour - not forgetting the little treats we got - Home-made! Certainly the best part of our whole time in Banff and Lake Louise.

Full day hike led by Joel. What a great pick. Joel was accommodating, passionate, knowledgeable and fun. The pace of the hike was perfect, the information that Joel shared about everything from geology to history to plant life was super informative and applicable. If we get back there we will book with Great Divide in a heart beat.

Joel - thanks for a wonderful experience!
