Discover the natural wonders of Banff!

This Banff sightseeing tour is a great introduction to the park. Uncover the secrets of a historic mountain haven with a local guide leading the way as you gaze upon the stunning views and visit Banff's key landmarks,

Venture down peaceful pine-scented trails and learn about wildlife habitat and behaviour from your guide. 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 the town of Banff whilst providing fascinating commentary on the history of Banff National Park and stories about the wildlife.
