Active by Nature To Re-Launch as of June 1st

I am delighted to inform you that Active by Nature has re-opened as of June 1st for Nordic walking, walking and hiking experiences offered in Canmore and Kananaskis.

To ensure your health and safety please note the following:

Nordic walking poles are sanitized between each use.  You are most welcome to bring and use your own walking poles. A third option is to purchase your own set of Urban Poles, Canada’s leading brand, at 20% off when booking your tour.  Offer expires Aug 31st.

Quick-Start Nordic walking tours (the most popular experience) start from the lobby of the crown jewel of Canmore, the Malcolm Hotel. The Malcolm has a hands free entrance to the lobby and hands free entrances to the nearby washrooms.  The hotel has a rigorous cleaning routine, hand sanitizer readily available and they physical distancing measures in place. It is an excellent place to consider staying for your Canmore visit, or enjoying a meal in the Stirling Lounge or grabbing a bite at the cafe.  Quick-Start Nordic walking session details can be found here.

This spring and summer, group sizes will be a minimum of two persons and a maximum of six.   I am always happy to lead a private tour.  Please contact me for details. I will be maintaining physical distancing within our group at all times.  I will be using trails and pathways that allow for physical distancing from other trail users.  This means masks are not required but if you feel comfortable wearing one, perfect, and if you like, I can too.  If you are sick with cold-like symptoms such as cough, fever, runny nose, sore throat or shortness of breath, please contact me right away for a full refund (more than 24 hours notice) or a full credit (24 hours or less notice).

Guided hike information can be found here.

Walking tour information, including details about a Jun 13 waterfall photography walk, can be found here.

I am looking forward to seeing you this spring and summer, sharing with you the beautiful outdoor scenery of Canmore & Kananaskis Country and also sharing my “passion for poling” and walking in Canmore. In the mean time, stay safe, healthy and active, by nature!
