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.

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.
