Canmore: 3-Hour Canyons and Cave Paintings Hiking Tour

1. Canmore: 3-Hour Canyons and Cave Paintings Hiking Tour

Embark on a hiking tour by meeting your guide at Rotary Friendship Park. From there, depart on a short 15-minute drive to the trailhead (vehicle required).  Explore the narrow-walled creek bed which twists and turns for many kilometers. Reach a fork in the creek bed as the smooth limestone walls get steeper and steeper. Head right to see a glistening waterfall.  Discover ancient, indigenous pictographs hidden in the cave walls and learn about the history that has almost been lost in time. The tour is offered in the summer and winter.  In the winter, ice cleats and hiking poles are supplied. Exploring the canyon in the winter is a very unique and rewarding experience. Go deep into the canyon with your ice cleats allowing you to go into more unexplored areas.
