Have fun as you solve clues and discover the best parts of Banff - Safely!

Banff’s streets become your playground in this team treasure hunt activity!

The adventures have been modified from their original version to remove interactions in pubs and other businesses, to remain outside and to allow for effective social distancing. Great fun while social distancing!

Using an app on your smartphone, your Clue Solving Adventure will take you on an adventure around Banff to uncover cool hidden gems. 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, this is a brain-teasing voyage of discovery to finding secrets even the locals don’t know.

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

How it works:

  • You’ll receive a series of clues on the free APP. Each clue will guide you to a new location where you'll find a hidden word or solve a puzzle.
  • Along the way you'll visit local icons, uncover hidden spots, discover great dining and shopping, and enjoy stunning Banff scenery.
  • Once you’ve registered your adventure and selected your start date with the tour provider, you’ll receive an email with the 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.
  • Clues are sequential and written assuming you have no knowledge of the town.
  • 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!
  • Suggested team size is to 2-4 players. It is most fun when working with other people to find and solve clues.
