What you'll do

We'll spend a few hours snowshoeing through old-growth forests, frozen lakes and amazing viewpoints in this beginners to intermediate hike. Your tour is a picture-perfect way to experience Canada’s outdoors, while learning the basics of landscape photography. All levels of hikers and types of cameras are welcome.

The 3-4 hour, 6km return, minimal elevation hike reaches 1,054 meters (3,460 feet). You take a break at the top for a spectacular view while enjoying snacks/lunch and an opportunity to work on your photography.

The tour includes return transportation from your accommodation to the mountain resort, snowshoes, photography lessons/tips and complimentary photos. Hiking poles (optional) can be borrowed.

As an outdoors guide with 20+ years of experience leading hikes, I will show you how to snowshoe safely, following your own pace if needed. As a photographer I'll not only take beautiful photos of your memories, but also teach you landscape photography regardless of whether you carry a smartphone or DSLR.

My husband and I had the most AMAZING time with Nafees. He was not just such a knowledgeable guide and great conversationalist, he went the extra mile to make the experience a special one for my husband who celebrated his birthday this weekend. The hike itself was easy (a little scary for me going downhill with small rocks, but still pretty manageable), the views were fantastic, and we even got to hand feed birds at the top, like we were in a Disney movie, haha. Nafees also did a really good job of pointing out cool photo spots for us. All in all, I would highly recommend this experience. It was hard to think about how to make it better.

This was THE BEST hike experience I’ve ever done. Nafees is an expert and he really cares for your well being along the way. Constantly check ups to ensure everyone is doing well and gave us some amazing tips for photography. Nafees really went above and beyond for our hike! I would 100% recommend. I could have never done this on my own. Thanks Nafees!
