Banff National Park is without a doubt, home to the best skiing in Alberta – but did you know that also, some of the best skiing in British Columbia is also at Banff’s doorstep? You can get picked up from your hotel, transferred to the resort, and get a lift ticket, all for less than the price of a lift ticket alone at the resort.
It’s no secret that Banff and Lake Louise is home to some of the best skiing in the Rockies – but what they’re also home to, are a ton of activities ranging from ice walks, tubing, snowshoeing, sightseeing, snowmobiling, dogsledding and more. We have a comprehensive itinerary for visitors to mix and match.
When fall turns to winter and the temperatures drop below freezing, canyons turn into detailed, Narnia-like ice valleys that create the best icewalks in Banff. Discover Banff Tours offers three winter Banff icewalks and each gives a different perspective. So which will you choose?
Iconic to the great white north and our most popular activity is dogsledding. These docile and well-trained animals take you on a journey like no other through our Rocky Mountains but book early! Dogsledding tours sell out well in advance.
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. Unless you come armed with a snorkel and ready to work hard, we suggest you explore the deep snow via snowshoes.
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.
Fact: there is always things to do and see in Banff, year round. Whether it’s wildlife, flora, fauna, or dramatic Rocky Mountain landscapes, there are many different views of Banff National places to explore. The best way to see Banff’s winter scenery, wildlife and hidden gems is on one of our sightseeing tours.
One of our best activities for family adventure in Banff is snowshoeing. With our tours in Kootenay National Park, you not only get to explore this neighbouring national park, but you stomp around completely care and stress-free.
