A Short Walk in the Rocky Mountains of Banff, Canada
If you like nature, walking and chocolate then you’ll love Joel Hagen and Nadine Fletcher from Great Divide Nature Interpretation who organise guided walks in the Rocky Mountains near Banff in Canada.
They’ve hit upon the inspired idea of organising interpreted hikes to some of Banff National Parks most spectacular viewing points then cooking up a chocolate fondue served with fresh fruit for their guests when they get to the top.
Master interpreter Joel Hagen has a passion for Banff’s flora and fauna and doubles up as your private high altitude chef
I joined Joel on the Castle Mountain Lookout trail, a seven kilometer (four mile) walk rising 500 meters (1,640 feet), and kindly agreed to carry some of the fruit to lighten Joel’s load and help me burn off a few extra calories in anticipation of my chocolate fondue lunch.
