Family Survival Hike

This is a 3-hour long family survival skills session in a beautiful outdoor 'classroom' in the Canadian Rockies.

Starting at 9 am, you will join your guide on a leisurely 4.5km hike along the Kananaskis River and out to Troll Falls. Along the way, learn about the wildlife that calls Kananaskis home. Learn to follow and analyze animal tracks and signs along the trail. Your guide will show you a wide variety of wild edibles along the trail and teach you what to do should you encounter a bear.

Once at the waterfall, learn to start a fire without a lighter, using materials collected on the hike. Feel like one of the original explorers of the wild west as you sip a tea made from local plants and listen to the music of a spring-fed waterfall.

On the way back, each family/cohort will be challenged to build a shelter using basic emergency supplies. Your guide will offer feedback and as a group, you will discuss the best place to build a shelter and what you would look for should you ever need to survive in the backcountry.

This tour will last 3 hours and will be limited to one group/cohort at a time to ensure the best possible experience!

Maximum 8 people per tour. Great for kids aged 5 and up!

  • Pricing for the tour includes up to 8 people.
  • Each tour is exclusive to you and your group.
