Do you have a Mountain you want to climb?

Private Guiding

Hello and welcome to the CanRock Mountain Guides website.

We are a small, independent guiding service that specializes in custom built trips in the Canadian Rockies of Banff National Park, Kananaskis and Lake Louise as well as provide climbing, skiing and Avalanche Skills Training (Avalanche Canada AST courses).

We provide services for all mountain sports including rock climbing, hiking, mountaineering and winter mountain sports which includes ski touring & ice climbing.

What truly sets us apart from some of our larger competitors is that we are a small, independent operation where you will be dealing directly with your guide from the time you initially get in touch with us right through to the day we are climbing or travelling together.

We are not a guide booking agency or a mountain school where your guide may have varying levels of certification and/or experience. The guide you are hiring and paying for is a member in good standing of both the Association of Mountain Guides (ACMG), the International Federation of Mountain Guides (IFMGA) and a professional member of the Canadian Avalanche Association. (CAA),  We carry all required National Parks and Provincial guiding permits.

Our site is broken down into instructional programs and private guiding, if you interested in our courses page, click on this link:


Private Rock Guiding


Imagine yourself breaking through personal barriers, finding something inside yourself that you didn’t think you had to achieve something extraordinary.  Rock Climbing gives this to us and we would love to share this gift with you in the spectacular backdrop of  the Banff, Lake Louise or Kananaskis Country.

The Canadian Rockies has hundreds, if not thousands of rock climbs around the greater Bow Valley areas of Canmore, Banff and Lake Louise. CRMG’s are longtime locals who know the best climbing routes and we are happy to share these incredible places with you.

*$550 for one person and an additional $100 for the second person ($650 for 2 people)
