Grotto Canyon

Discover a hidden gem of the Canadian Rockies on an adventurous hike into Grotto Canyon, an ancient landscape that is truly spectacular in the winter. Your expert guide will lead you into this amazing region to uncover ancient Native American pictographs, complex rock formations, fascinating forests, and mountain shaping icefalls.

After picking you up from your hotel in Banff or Canmore, we'll head out to the Grotto Canyon, slip on our ice cleats and grab our hiking poles for a scenic journey. We'll enter the canyon via a frozen creek and pass by the stunted forest, a twisted collection of trees that are dwarfed by the giants that dominate Bow Valley. Keep your eyes out for ancient rock art that link human activity to the local Native American tribes of the region. Let your guide regal you of the fascinating geological and natural history of the canyon. We may even encounter ice climbers scaling the canyon's frozen waterfalls.

This unique adventure will lead us to a region generally untouched by the general public, making it a tour like no other.

Please input your hotel address in "meeting point" during booking and we'll confirm the pick-up schedule with you.
