Chasing Waterfalls - Through the Lens

Join us for a two day mountain experience in Nordegg, AB!

Experience Details

Where?

We will be exploring in the amazing David Thompson Corridor in Alberta! Stretching 83km's along Highway 11 from Nordegg to the Banff National Park boundary in west-central Alberta, the David Thompson Corridor remains one of the few mountain areas in the province outside either a national or provincial park, or a wilderness area.  From the rolling foothills of the Nordegg area to the towering pinnacles of the main ranges, the David Thompson Corridor offers some of the most diversified scenery, flora and history in Alberta’s Rocky Mountains.

What?

This experience includes 2 full days of exploring, seeing the beauty of waterfalls all around us. We are taking a new approach to adventure, we are going to immerse ourselves in it! Adventure seems to have one pace and that is GO! We want to engage with our surrounding at a pace we can take photos, have conversations and share laughs.

We have hand-picked three hikes that all lead to spectacular waterfalls, put them all together and created a safe place where women can explore and challenge themselves while conquering some new trails. We will be exploring beautiful places and seeing waterfalls all while learning and talking about hiking and photography.  We will also be camping overnight at 2 O’Clock Creek Campground.

Our experience has been designed to challenge you and create connections in many different ways!  We are going to be talking all things female empowerment, mountain safety and adventure planning tools, including our BE AWARE Program, celebrating and supporting each other as we make it through this weekends adventure!
