This summer (June to September), join us on a scheduled guided hike in the Castle Provincial Park and around Crowsnest Pass. A minimum of 4 people must be signed up for us to adventure into the wilderness. If you want something a little bit more off-the-beaten-path, don't hesitate to ask. We love taking people to other areas, but we don't list these on our website.

When you hire a local guide, you are getting local knowledge and supporting a local economy. We are very grateful that you picked Uplift Adventures.
