Tour Reviews


Best winter trip ever!
The guide from Liv Outside, Alex was absolutely amazing. Excellent teacher which allowed us to pick up ice climbing quickly. He saw how well we did on the first two climbing spots so he took us to a harder climb to challenge us, which made the day. I would recommend ice climbing to everyone especially someone who has been to the indoor rock climbing gym before. My friends and I will defiantly be back.
Thanks Alex for a great day!


This past Saturday a group of friends and I headed out the Muskoka area for the Intro Ice Climb with Alex Atkin as our guide. I had originally come across this program in the summer through a simple google search. Over about a month of corresponding with my group of friends and Alex we had the date set and were all pretty excited.

I personally have been dealing with health issues since November and have been in and out of Hospital and dealing with little to strictly no activity. A few weeks ago I was given the okay to get out there and active again, though being so inactive for such a long period of time made this trip a little daunting in my mind.

All worries were put aside from the support and instruction from Alex. We had a great afternoon climbing and I felt very encouraged. Alex was very informative of not only his knowledge on climbing but of other programs my friends and I were interested in. It felt less like we were being instructed by a total stranger and more like we were by a good pal who knows a lot about what we were doing. There is no other way I would have rather spent my Saturday.

We will definitely be returning customers to Liv Outside and not only because we had such a great day climbing but because we had a really great instructor as well.


To the Owner or General Manager:
This past Sunday me and my daughter Giulia participated in a wonderful ice-climbing trip-experience with your guide Alex: it was a memorable experience; Alex was outstanding and very professional; my daughter was amazed by this experience and hope to convince her to repeat next year this experience. One thing has impressed me about Alex and your company that had made this trip great: SAFETY everything was done with the out-most concern about safety and for me that is ALL. Certainly I would recommend you to all of my acquiescence. Thanks a lot for this past Sunday: please forward this to Alex and hope to repeat this next year.
