Set off to tackle Mont Norquay and explore the Canadian Rockies from a new angle!

First, climb some of the mountain on a chairlift. Then, in the company of your guide, you will climb the rock face of Mount Norquay using a system of cables, ladders and hand rails. You will cross a footbridge to an observation deck. From there, you can take in the breathtaking views over the Canadian Rockies.

The most adventurous among you can carry on to steeper faces.
