If you’ve never felt small while being surrounded by towering, mystic giants before, buckle up for the Icefields Parkway. Named among top drives in the world by National Geographic and Lonely Planet, the Discover Banff Tours’ Columbia Icefields Parkway Tour brings you to new heights and ancient geology.
Banff is a wild place – which is mainly why people come to visit. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is a protected treasure, and with a treasure like this, comes great responsibility. No many know more about wildlife viewing than our Discover Banff Tours Wildlife Tour guides.
Don’t knock it before you try it! Snowshoeing on a Discover Banff Tours Snowshoe Tour is the best winter way to truly take in the scale, depth, sights and sounds of a Canadian Rockies winter.

Walking on ice with each of our Icewalks is safe, but no Icewalk is ever the same. With three different icy adventures to choose from, a Discover Banff Tours Icewalk can happen day or night, snow or shine as our guides take you to two spectacular canyons near Banff.
