How about:
  • Ski-joering or dog sledding near Rocky Mountain House are organised by Klondike Ventures. Enjoy a different winter activity under the expert guidance of your hosts at Klondike Ventures. Because of the travel distance to / from Rocky Mountain House, we recommend booking your day of dog-sledding on the day of arrival or departure.

  • Learn about the traditional way of life of the native North Americans and our natural heritage by joining a tour or programme offered by Mahikan Trails. There are summer and winter programmes available as well as a choice of different activities / learning experiences.

  • Explore a different area of the foothills and front ranges from the comfort of Rocky Mountain Escape's log cabins outside Jasper National Park (NW of Hinton). Various nature interpretative programmes offered year round.

  • Learn and enjoy some of the many activities this area has to offer. The Centre for Outdoor Education will provide guiding and training in a variety of activities such as mountaineering, climbing, caving, ice-climbing, wilderness skills and more.

  • From May to September, guided glacier walks on the Athabasca Glacier have proven to be another favourite activity among our guests. In our opinion, far more interesting, challenging, much better value and more environmentally responsible than the polluting snow-coach tours used by most tour operators.

  • Looking for some nature interpretation on guided hikes in the Banff National Park? Summer or winter, Great Divide Nature Interpretation is at your disposal in the Lake Louise area.

  • World class fly-fishing in the Foothills? Tailwater Drifters will take you on yet another unforgettable vacation experience.
