Built upon the belief that adventure can be transformational, let Girth Hitch Guiding take you on a life-affirming journey through the ancient mountains of the Alberta’s Canadian Rockies. Based out of  Nordegg, Alberta we thrive on introducing outdoor enthusiasts – from beginners to experts – to our beautiful mountains .

Our approach to guiding is guest-centric and strives to bring the best out of everyone we work with. We believe that mountains are not something to be conquered but rather ancient friends to discover and experience.
