I am so happy to make the decision to join Joel's Snowshoeing Tour during the Family Long Weekend in 2017. Joel organized the tours well and shared many interesting stories about the forest, animals and his experience in the Rocky Mountain. Plus, the bar and hot chocolate he provided were delicious. I do recommend this tour for everybody and you... More

My wife and I went with Joel on a private snowshoe tour this Monday. We are novices on snowshoes and we really wanted to learn from an expert. It was great. Joel is knowledgeable about the area, the wildlife and got us comfortable on snowshoes. As I think about, we certainly could have gone off on our own on a... More

My family of 5 - 2 adults and 3 children 10,12 and 14 years thoroughly enjoyed our snow shoe experience with Joel a week ago. We were a little unsure of the half day experience worrying that it would be too long however the time passed so quickly that before we knew it - sadly it was over. The kids... More

I booked a tour with Joel and Nadine as part of a birthday surprise trip, and what a fascinating and memorable surprise it was! We went out into the woods and made our way through the stunning, snow-covered scenery while being wonderfully introduced to snowshoeing, which we consequently want to give another try soon! Joel has been a perfect and... More

Thanks for your review Alex. We hope you and Lena enjoy your year of adventures in Canada. Looks like you could use snowshoes almost coast to coast right now, since we're having a proper winter. Our best to you both! More

This was my first experience not only in Banff, but snow shoeing and I would do it a hundred thousand times over. The experience went far beyond just walking in the Forest of Banff National park. This was an educational, interactive adventure that is suitable for all ages and fitness types! Joel was our guide and he was a very... More

This was our second snowshoe tour with Joel from Great Divide. Once again, we had a wonderful time. My 66 year-old Mom was along this year and Joel did a fantastic job making sure she was keeping up and enjoying herself. Highly recommend!!!
