Our lakes are full of fish, but so are our creeks, where fly-fishers come for some of the best fly-fishing in the province. You can also try your hand at ice fishing when the lake freezes during the winter. Licenses are available in town.

Hiking and Biking

Get outside and hit the trails! Grab your Passport to the Peaks, which provides an excellent map of the area’s marked trails, which are open year-round. There are more than 20 mountain peaks surrounding Grande Cache to explore.

On the Water: Rafting, Canoeing and Kayaking

See Grande Cache from a different perspective: This area is rich with navigable rivers ranging from easy class 1 stretches to wild class 5 white water rapids. Take a white water rafting or kayak/canoe tour for a unique look at the area around Grande Cache.

Golfing

The Grande Cache Golf and Country Club boasts a spectacular nine-hole course set against the gorgeous backdrop of the Rocky Mountains. The course features rolling fairways bordered by pine and spruce, where you are very likely to see Bald and Golden Eagles. There is a driving range and putting green, as well as rentals available. The clubhouse also has a licensed dining lounge to enjoy.

Sulphur Gates

In the Canadian Rockies, adventure is everywhere. Right here in Grande Cache, the Sulphur Gates is one of the most popular regional attractions, featuring a dramatic cliff-edged meeting of two great rivers: The Smoky and the Sulphur.
