Epic trip. Outstanding scenery and a great mix of day hiking (3 days) and 2 days of backpacking out. Nice bonus was helicopter to get to Lake Magog quicker. There were 6 of us including 1 guide on the July 17-21st trip. Great food prepared by guide (Daire) and very patient with us as we obviously wanted to take a... More

3 friends and I recently had a guided private day to practise crevasse rescue skills. We had such a blast! Our guide, Jesse Demontigny, was extremely professional, knowledgeable and friendly. He catered the curriculum specifically to our needs and abilities, and he explained and demonstrated concepts tangibly and thoroughly. The day was well-organized as we supplemented our own gear with... More

I took the 5-day moderate backpacking trip to Mount Assiniboine, which I had wanted to see for a long time. We had the best international 7-person group ever, and two guides. Both guides were very professional and super-fun. The food was provided by Yamnuska, and it was good! We eventually spent 3 days at Lake Magog instead of the original... More

My husband and I recently completed the Jasper trip with Daire as the hike leader. The trip is not easy, covering ~80km-~90km over 4 nights and 5 days, but every step is worth it for the stunning glacial lakes, wooded forest and high alpine vistas. This was our second trip with Yamnuska and it reaffirmed the company's professionalism and commitment... More
