Welcome back

This year, things are going to be different in Banff.

COVID-19 has prompted us to make changes to the tours and activities we operate and also to our partner attractions.

All our regular guided sightseeing tours will be operated on a private basis, with a minimum of 4 adults in the same family or cohort group.

The one thing that won’t change is the beauty, stories and adventures that we look forward to showing you.

Hope to see you soon.
