Meet your Hiking Guide

Karla Kuharic

Hello, my name is Karla Kuharic, I am based in Nakusp, BC. I am an ACMG Apprentice Hiking Guide with Winter Travel certification along with Non-Urban Emergency Care Level 3 and Occupational First Aid Level 3 Certification. I am also a certified PMBI Professional Mountain Bike Instructor Level 1. 

I have worked in the Adventure Tourism Sector since 1998 when in 2007 I switched gears and started a career in the marine industry on the Upper Arrow Lakes. My true passion has brought me back to pursuing my love for the mountains and sharing that with travelers from around the world.

I am the founder of the Alpine Club of Canada Columbia Mountain Section based in Revelstoke, BC. My involvement with the ACC has allowed me to pursue my love for Mountaineering, Rock, and Ice Climbing as well as many other outdoor activities. The ACC has also given me the opportunity for leadership training, as well as meeting like minded adventurers, and having ample opportunities to spend in the mountains. 

All these experiences have led me to start Alpenglow Mountain Escapes to share with you what others have shared with me. 

I look forward to spending a day hiking with you!



Your hiking guide Karla Kuharic is continuing to bring you tours this year whilst observing the COVID-19 protocols set out by health and safety experts and the Association of Canadian Mountain Guides (ACMG).
