Canmore, AB - Beginner Hiking Weekend

Join us for a beginners hiking adventure in Canmore, AB.

ADVENTURE Details

Where?

In the heart of Canmore! Canmore is a town in Alberta’s Rocky Mountains, west of Calgary. It’s known for craggy summits like the Three Sisters and Ha Ling Peak. Located one-hour West of Calgary and only 5 minutes from the Banff National Park, Canmore lies nestled along the banks of the Bow River in the heart of the Rocky Mountains.

While we are tackling two days of hiking, you are going to experience some of the most incredible views, forests and nature that Canmore has to offer! We come together to conquer this hiking challenge in a supportive, safe and celebratory environment.

We are hand picking two of our favourite routes in Canmore. The trails we will set out to hike will be announced closer to our adventure day as we assess the snow levels. You can expect easy-moderate hiking levels. The trails will have some ascending and descending, technical sections and views to enjoy! We have put together  this beginner hiking weekend to create a safe place where female identifying people can explore, challenge themselves and celebrate each other! We will be exploring beautiful trails while supporting and cheering for each other!

What?

This beginner hiking adventure includes two days of hiking in Canmore. Our hike is going to be about 8-10kms on the first day and a sunrise hike around 5-7km on the second day. Our adventure has been designed to challenge you and at the same time guide, teach and educate you about hiking and the mountains. We will be physically, emotionally and mentally challenged, as we make our way through our hikes together. We will be ascending and descending on technical mountain terrain, stopping to take in spectacular views, enjoying a stretch and release session and welcoming a new day with a sunrise on a summit. We are going to be talking all things hiking, gear, mountain safety and adventure planning tools. Celebrating and supporting each other as we make it through this weekends adventure!
