Banff Carriage Rides

Soak up the mountain scenery while relaxing in a private horse-drawn carriage, complete with a cowboy driver as your personal guide. If you’re planning on a sightseeing tour of Banff, there aren’t many more elegant ways to get around.

Snap photos of historic buildings on a tour of downtown, take in the beauty of the Bow River or journey out to Fairmont Banff Springs.

If you want to set your own agenda, just let us know – we can customize a carriage ride that visits the parts of Banff you’d most like to see.

Want to get more hands on? You can clean, feed and harness your horse at our stables before slipping on a cowboy hat, cracking the reins, and driving the carriage all the way to our store on Banff Avenue (under the watchful eye of our guide, of course).
