Outdoor tours, trips and courses in the Canadian Rockies with Uplift Adventures

Led and instructed by industry professionals within Waterton Lakes National Park, Castle Parks, and Crowsnest Pass.

Find winter and its beauty. Join us for winter activities!

Explore winter like never before. Join one of our tours and discover culture, history, and nature. Our professional guides will take you out exploring Waterton Lakes National Park, Castle Parks, and Crowsnest Pass.

Join one of our storytelling tours that will captivate your senses and immerse you into a world of discovery. We have three winter tours: Waterton Winter Wonderland, Moonlight Snowshoe near Castle Mountain Resort, and Science Ice Walk.

If you are looking for more outdoor exploration without the storytelling, you might be interested in a guided trip with Adventure Club or put together a private trip.

Explore with purpose.

Our ultimate dream is to create conservation tourism to rebuild some of the damaged landscapes from historical mining, exploration, and neglected trail use in the Canadian Rockies. The owner of Uplift Adventures has a background in Environmental Science and has a passion to protect these special places, and after her time working in government she understands the urgency to find solutions. Help us get there and supporting Uplift Adventures is a great start!
