Custom Adventures

If you haven’t found your dream hike or want us to plan and guide your own mountain adventure, you’re on the right page! From single days of hiking and yoga, to wilderness backpacks in the Canadian Rockies, to week-long adventures down into the Grand Canyon, village to village in the Italian Dolomites, or perhaps the sacred valley of the kingdom of Bhutan, Martha is always excited to design and lead custom adventures. Contact her directly.

Summers in the Canadian Rocky Mountains

Summers in the Canadian Rocky Mountains are nothing short of fantastic, with incredible wildflowers, chances to see an awesome range of wildlife, incredible close-up views of lofty, often snowy peaks, and with a little creativity, opportunities to go beyond the crowds. Martha offers awe-inspiring, fun, safe and informative custom adventures in the mountains of Banff, Yoho and Kootenay National Parks and Kananaskis country…complete with lunch catered with care, great taste, and sometimes even a glass of champagne!

Lake O’Hara is one of the most magnificent gems of the Canadian Rockies, where crowds are limited by bus access booked months in advance. Five seats are reserved for certified guides with one day’s notice, so ask Martha about the Alpine Circuit.

YOGA IN THE MOUNTAINS!

Yoga can make our muscles, joints and entire bodies feel alive and more supple, and can help quiet a busy mind and reconnect us within. Nature offers a feast for all of our senses and can also offer a way to reconnect with our roots. Combining the two can be a powerful experience, amplifying each other and bringing a welcome deepening of the felt experience of living. We can find beautiful off-trail meadows to enjoy some yoga on many of the trails listed below. Add yoga and mindfulness to any hiking day at no extra charge.
