It’s your adventure, your way!

A game? A tour? YOU decide! Your clue solving route will lead you on an adventure through Canmore. Combining the fun of a scavenger hunt with the clue-solving challenge of an escape room and the added excitement of a race against the clock, it’s more than just a tour. This adventure game is a brain-teasing voyage of discovery and it’s your ticket to finding secrets even the locals don’t know.


You’ll receive a series of clues by on the free APP. Each clue will lead you on an easy walk to a new location where you'll solve a puzzle or find a hidden word. Along the way you'll visit local icons, uncover hidden places, discover great dining and shopping, and enjoy stunning scenery.

This adventure is a great experience for families, friends, and groups. Whether you choose to race the clock or simply enjoy the experience as you tour Canmore is entirely up to you!

How it works:

  • Once you’ve registered your adventure and selected your start date with the tour provider you’ll receive an email with instructions and access code. (This is done after you’ve activated your experience on Breakaway Experiences’ website.)
  • Download the free APP and use the access code to activate your adventure.
  • You’ll then receive a series of clues through the tour App. Each clue will lead you on an easy walk to a different location where you will have to solve a puzzle or find a hidden word.
  • Clues are written assuming you have no knowledge of the town and are sequential. Each clue has several components to look for to guide you towards that clue’s destination.
  • Submit the correct answer and you will immediately get the next clue. (Don’t worry, hints and directions are available but do cost you a time penalty!)
  • Complete all the clues and solve the final mystery!
