Banff Evening Wildlife Safari

The Evening Wildlife Safari is the perfect Banff sightseeing tour for spotting incredible wildlife during their most active evening period, all set against the beautiful landscape of the Canadian Rockies.
Where:Banff, Alberta
Price for:1 Participant
Keep your eyes peeled for sightings of animals such as elk, sheep, deer, and bears.

As the sun sets behind the craggy peaks, the wildlife of Banff National Park become more active in the cool hours before dark. This 2-hour animal-spotting safari will lead you at dusk to the hotspots where you are most likely to see Rocky Mountain wildlife. You might spot a sheep grazing in an alpine meadow, an elk meandering across a clearing,  and sometimes even a grizzly bear foraging through a berry bush. 

It is possible to see the following in the park: white tail deer, mule deer, elk, eagles, grizzly bears, black bears, coyotes, wolves, Canadian geese, osprey, ducks, mountain goats, and big horn sheep.

Wildlife is spotted 95% of the time on this tour, so this is the best chance to get up close with some of Banff’s wildest residents. Unfortunately, there is a never a guarantee of seeing any animals, but the expert guides do their best to take you to areas they know animals frequent.

Along the way you’ll also have the chance to step off the bus to take in the scenic views. Your guide will share details about these amazing creatures and how Banff National Park protects the animals and their natural habitat from many threats to the ecosystem. A stop will be made at an interactive touch table to view rare animal artifacts.
