Adventure Information

You are safely rigged up to a system of ropes and you control your descent while your guide ensures your safety. Go as fast or slow as you want. Rappelling is more of a mental than a physical challenge. Your guide will instruct you in how to make your way down.

The most challenging part is when you first step over the edge and lean into the rope while you sit back into your harness. Your guide offers gentle encouragement, so that you can stretch your comfort zone! We call this the ‘fun zone’!

We provide all the equipment needed including harness, helmet, ropes, and shoes if you need them. No experience is needed. Depending on the size of the group, you should get several opportunities to rappel during the tour.

We strongly recommend you follow up this day tour with one of our Rock Climbing Courses

Important Information

We strongly recommend you purchase insurance for Trip Cancellation, Emergency Evacuation and Adventure Sports Coverage (some backcountry adventures are excluded from coverage).

Emergency Evacuation and Medical Insurance

This coverage provides you with emergency air rescue if required and full medical. Parks Canada provides free evacuation within the Parks and if you are a Canadian resident your medical will be covered by your provincial health plan (except ambulance/air ambulance transport). We strongly recommend international visitors purchase this insurance.

Emergency evacuation insurance is compulsory for all our hut trips, as these typically take place outside of Parks Canada’s jurisdiction.

Trip Cancellation Insurance

To prepare for unforeseen circumstances we strongly recommend purchasing Trip Cancellation Insurance at the time of booking your trip. Trip Cancellation insurance covers many scenarios to reimburse you for cancelled trips outside of your control.
