Canyon tours into the Grotto Canyon near Canmore, Alberta


Explore the mystery written in stone on these canyon tours into the Grotto Canyon. View the wonders of the passages etched and sculpted thousands of years by running glacier water, and view the awe inspiring formations of the canyon. 

Take a walk into the past as we guide you through the human history of Grotto Canyon. Being an Aboriginal company, we offer our cultural perspective on the pictographs and some of the teachings behind them.

Our skilled and knowledgeable guides explain the history and geology within the canyon as you walk along a gentle sloping trail. You will hear two different accounts of the ancient pictographs left by early First Nations people. One is a modern point of view, and the other is an Aboriginal version. 

After the guide lays tobacco and offers a small prayer, the story continues from the interpretation delivered enroute. Afterward you will continue a little further to enjoy traditional bush tea and a snack beside a pristine frozen waterfall before returning to the trailhead with your guide.
