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.

This trip exceeded our expectations. This is a great beginner canyoning location and company. Our guide (Andrew) was exceptional. He took a lot of time (and patience) to work with us on technique. The trip was not rushed at all. He even allowed us to rappel the final decent along the waterfall TWICE (something we did not expect at all). This company also was VERY responsive with answering questions and making sure we had everything we needed for this trip. I would book with them again in a heart beat.

This was a Mother/daughter adventure together. After self reflection a few days later I still couldn’t believe I did this, tested me physically and mentally. It was definitely a feel good moment in my life. Thanks to the two guides who were patient and experienced to help each of us on this journey. My daughter wants to do the intermediate level next. She was on a thrill high after this. Great people and great motivation for each other definitely a team effort!

About This Deal


This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Heart Creek Trail Head, 105, New exit from Highway 1 to New Roundabout, AB T0L 2C0, Canada

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).

Duration: 4 hours
