About
Never tried canyoning before? Then this is the trip for you! A relatively easy approach, an ideal location to introduce rappelling, and amazing scenery all make this canyon trip the perfect choice for your first canyoning experience. Heart Creek Canyon is also our closest trip to the townsites of Banff & Canmore. A popular summer day hike destination, few visitors of Heart Creek ever explore the top of lower Heart Canyon or venture to the upper Heart Canyon. Upper Heart Canyon provides a perfect location to learn and develop your comfort with rope rappelling. The introductory short rappels allow you to ease into the rappelling. Rappels progressively increase in length, finally culminating with an exciting 60ft waterfall rappel and slide.

    Heart Creek Trail Head
    Stop: 4 hours
    After meeting your guides and other participants at the staging area in the Heart Creek Trail parking lot, a 30 - 45 min hike will bring you to the top of both the Canyon sections, and the start of your canyon adventure. Everyone suits up and in order to ensure safety your guides will go thru a mandatory rappel and rope safety clinic. There are a total of 5 rappels, interspersed with some scrambling and hiking. The upper canyon is the easier section and can be dry later on in the summer. This gives everyone the opportunity to ease into the rappelling. The last rappel on the lower canyon section is always wet (it can be considered optional it is not required to exit the canyon, a hike around is available).

An exhilarating experience - great mountain professionals
Jul 2020
Canyoning is a very popular activity in some places of this world, but not in Canada, yet; however, there is so much potential for it. As we were spending two weeks in the rockies, we thought it would a great idea and start searching for it. We have been very lucky to find Mark and his team - most of us were complete rookies - and we had a really great trip with him. It's super professional, yet fun-oriented, we have discovered places we would never have access otherwise, and it's a great alternatives to the hikes in the Kananaskis region. We seriously recommend it to anyone looking for a cool outdoor activity, and you really can't go wrong with them!

No show
Sep 2019
We arrived 20 minutes early at the designated spot to meet our guide for our adventure. As our departure time came and went, our guide was a no show. We called the company several times trying to find out what was going on, but after the first message we left, subsequent calls only told us the mailbox was full. We contacted trip advisor, whom we had booked through, and they we unable to reach anyone either. Since then trip advisor arranged for a full refund, which we received in a timely fashion. Still haven’t heard from the company though. So disappointed.
