Really enjoyed my trip, the views were spectacular, the waterfalls were beautiful and the river and lake very impressive, we saw a female black bear with three tiny cubs.( it was awesome) we also saw two bald eagle chicks, a very large elk, several deer and many small red squirrels, after the waterfalls and wildlife tour we continued on the hike, our guide, Jamie, was excellent, he was very knowledgeable about the whole area and it was great as there was only me and my lovely wife Sharon on the walk so it was 1:1, I have taken more pictures than I can ever use but one view was better than the next and knowing the history of the lakes and mountains thanks to Jamie’s knowledge made it all the better, this was definitely money well spent and allowed us a chance to see a bit more of Jasper than we would have exploring on our own, I was that impressed we have booked the white water rafting as this is a company that cares!

A brilliant time with our very knowledgable guide, Ross. We were very fortunate and saw lots of wildlife, bears, marmots, elk, coyote, osprey and a bald eagle sat on its nest. As the lake was still frozen and the trails were covered in ice and snow, we had a hike around the canyon instead. A great tour, would highly recommend it.

Jamie and Jake were excellent tour guides. Bus was great- big windows so plenty opportunities to see everything. Guides had an unbelievable amount of knowledge to share and we’re clearly passionate about the flora and fauna of the area. Animal sightings can’t be guaranteed but we saw osprey, bald eagle, elk, mule deer and a moose.
