Summer Wildlife Tour

The Athabasca Valley and her tributaries, the Maligne and Miette, are home to the greatest Mega-fauna sightings in the entire Rockies.

Getting out with me or one of my guides is not only the best opportunity to encounter the likes of Bear, Elk, Coyote, Sheep, Wolves and Moose but it's also a great opportunity to have some fun and learn a little bit about these creatures and the Mountain eco-system that supports them.

This is a driving based tour. You are permitted to exit the vehicle at designated stops to take photographs and access view points.

Yet another BUCKET LIST item. Whatever you do, don’t forget your camera!

Joe Urie

Owner / Head Guide

For over a hundred years guides have been leading people on excursions into these mountains in search of experiences only found on the periphery of their daily lives. In keeping with the standards set by such Jasper legends as Mary Schäffer, Curly Phillips and Bill Ruddy, Joe Urie, (voted the best guide in the Rockies), and his excellent staff will take you into the mountains on a trip that'll serve as the bricks and mortar with which you'll build your own memories. The mountains provide the setting, we provide the guide, but without you, there is no adventure!
