Satisfying travellers’ thirsts for adventure, the forthcoming ‘Uplift Adventures!’ business based around the Crowsnest Pass is already making its mark on the tourism industry before it’s even officially launched.

Recently receiving the Entrepreneurship award of $10,000 at the recent 2018 Growing Rural Tourism Conference, the up and coming business that’s built upon a foundation of educating whilst adventuring, is set to launch this spring, but is already gaining momentum with audiences across the country.
“Receiving this award was  really amazing,” says Heather Davis, recipient of the award and owner of Uplift Adventures!
“This $10,000 will go a long way for me, It hasn’t been easy to get to this point but I feel like it’s finally all coming together and this is the right time for me to start this company.”
On track to launch this April, Uplift Adventures! is based on the well-known business model of a guided tour company however Davis says there are multiple added factors that set this new establishment apart from the rest.
Focused on adding knowledge, history and culture to each tour or activity offered through the business, the Crowsnest Pass based company is excited to share their love of the outdoors with residents and visitors from far and wide in their new and unique way.
Offering everything from hikes and tours with interpretive programs on culture, history and biodiversity, as well as educational and skill-building workshops in areas such as introductions to hiking, backpacking and dehydrating courses, Davis says she couldn’t be more excited to bring these elevated tours to life this year.
“With this guiding and tour company  we want to build on people’s confidence of the outdoors.”
“And what really sets us apart is that we don’t just want to take people from point A to point B but we want to help people learn something along the way as well as connect people back with nature as a small escape from the crazy busyness of their daily lives.”
