Active by Nature is thrilled to be offering more things to do when visiting Canmore and Kananaskis this spring, summer and fall. Here is a rundown of what is new as well as a few returning favourites:
NEW HIKES FOR 2021:
Mountain Vistas Hike
The Ha Ling Half
Nordic WALK & FLOAT
Starting June 22nd, we will be partnering with Canmore Raft Tours to offer the 2hr 15 min walk and float on Tuesdays and Thursdays, with 5 time slots to choose from throughout the day. This is the perfect pairing of an active and invigorating Nordic walk with a relaxing, super scenic float down the Bow River. The Nordic walking portion will have most people learning a valuable new activity they are bound to love and practise wherever and whenever they go walking or hiking. The float will offer opportunities to see wildlife as well as seeing and photographing the Town's iconic mountains from the perspective of the river.
The Three Sisters Pathway Walk or Nordic Walk
This tour will take people from the edge of Canmore’s downtown, past beautiful homes, past the historic #2 mine site, along the Bow River and through the woods.
The tour will end at the Market Bistro in Three Sisters Mountain Village where we will enjoy a drink before taking ROAM transit back to our starting point.

In consideration of the continuing COVID pandemic, group sizes will be limited to eight on the walk and float package and six on all other Active by Nature outings. Nordic walking poles are sanitized after every use. Two metres of physical distancing is maintained between people of different cohorts.
We look forward to seeing you on the pathways and trails this season!

Your Health & Physical Activity Readiness:
We ask guests who are experiencing cold symptoms and symptoms of COVID-19 to stay home and practice self-isolation under the direction of the appropriate governing body. For almost everyone, the benefits of physical activity far outweigh any risks. For some individuals, special advice from a Qualified Exercise or health care provider is advisable before becoming more active. This questionnaire is intended for all ages – to help move you along the path to becoming more physically active.
Please review this Questionnaire if you have concerns about your health or fitness level for participating in Nordic walking.
Full refunds are given if a cancellation is received 24 hours or more prior to the clinic or tour date. No refunds are given with less than 24 hours notice. Clinics/tours go rain or shine. If the weather is extreme, then it may be cancelled with a full refund given.
