This is Banff's best tour for viewing wildlife. Wildlife are seen on over 95% of the tours!

The Discover Banff & Its Wildlife tour is a great introduction to the park. This is Banff's best tour for viewing wildlife. Wildlife is seen on over 95% of the tours.

Often, you are able to view wildlife on the tour, however, as the animals are wild these sightings cannot be guaranteed. Most commonly seen are white tail deer, mule deer, elk, and big horn sheep.


Your guide will take you to the main highlights around town whilst providing fascinating commentary on the history of Banff National Park and stories about the wildlife.

Your time on the tour will be spent enjoying the sights, taking photos, and participating in short walks to view points on the many stops of the tour. You’ll see and learn about wildlife behaviour, habitat, and their winter survival adaptations.
