We started our 14 days in Banff, Lake Moraine, Lake Louise and Jasper NP, by joining two seperate hikes with Great Divide Day Hikes, lead by Joel and Nadine. What a treat, and what a good decision that was on our part. Besides being great and fun company, both Joel and Nadine are such a fountain of knowledge about the... More

Nadine was a very knowledgeable, entertaining and patient guide. We really enjoyed our hike to the beautiful valley of the 10 Peaks and learnt so much about the local area and its flora and fauna. It also helped us on our own solo hikes in the region - we knew so much more about what to look out for and... More

Did the Sept 28 hike with Joel as our guide. He showed a lot of professionalism and had a wry sense of humor and made a great effort to interact with all the members of the group. It really is an interpretive hike, you stop occasionally to get some interesting facts but its cool as he involves you in the... More

We had a great day hike and learned a lot during the day. Best part was how relaxing it was since our guide "Joel" did a great job and kept us on track but not rushed. Beautiful views and memorable moments with friends.

I went on two guided hikes with Great Divide: one with Joel to Valley of the 10 peaks (Eiffel Lake) and one with Nadine to Larch Valley and Sentinel Pass. I found both Joel and Nadine to be competent 'hike leaders', outstanding nature interpreters, and very personable. I would highly recommend them for individuals or groups who: 1. Want to... More

On Sept. 13 my husband and I went on a memorable hike with Joel and four others through the Valley of the Ten Peaks at Moraine Lake. This is a whole day hike and was so very enjoyable that we were sorry when the day came to an end. We began organizing our trip months before. It was particularly important... More

Joel was a wonderful and very informative guide. He easily adapted to the interests of the various members of the group. Despite the rain and cloud, we gained a great appreciation for the flora and fauna of the Lake Louise area. Joel was very well organized, with great information provided before the hike, and good follow-up afterwards (including some great... More

Simply an outstanding experience! Nadine is not only an extremely knowledgeable guide but a master at helping folks remember important points regarding the nature and development of Lake O'Hara. As a Master Interpreter, she truly helped bring the park to life for us. Best hike ever! And we left having made a new friend!

We went with Nadine, and she did a fantastic job taking our group out to the Valley of 10 Peaks. It was maybe a bit more difficult hike than we would have been willing to do by ourselves, and it was great that the group was large enough that we didn't need to worry about bears. This was probably THE... More

We booked two moderate hikes with Great Divide and couldn't be happier. Their attention to detail, friendliness and caring nature enhances your day in such a beautiful area. Joel's enthusiasm and broad knowledge of any subject presented to him illuminated our hikes. We certainly would not have enjoyed these hikes as much as we did if we weren't with Great... More
