Banff Hiking

As your boots crunch on a winding alpine trail, you stop to catch your breath. Far below, a turquoise lake glints in the late afternoon sun. Up ahead, a forest of pine trees stretches to the horizon. And rising above it all, the soaring tips of mountains shimmer under their blanket of winter snow.

There are hundreds of Banff hiking trails that serve up raw beauty like this. But our signature guided hikes allow you to experience the most scenic and inspiring places accessible by foot in the comfort of a small group. From the blossoming wildflowers of spring to the explosion of reds and oranges in the fall, our experienced guides will show you well-known trails and a few secret spots you may not have heard about.

Looking for a unique high-mountain hiking experience? Take a scenic helicopter flight up to land on Mount Charles Stewart at 7,000 feet for a guided alpine hike.

Guided Signature Hikes

With hundreds of hiking trails how do you know which one to choose? Come with us! Our guides have picked their four favourite 'signature' trails. We have selected what we consider the best of the best when it comes to getting out there and spending time in the backcountry of the Rocky Mountain National Parks. From the explosion of wildflowers in the spring, to the clear glacier views in the summer, to the brilliant golden of the larch trees in the fall, hiking in the Rockies should not be missed. Our Interpretive Guides' priority is having a safe, fun and informative tour that connects you more to where you are visiting. We hike in small groups which is recommended for safety to reduce wildlife encounters. Hiking time is between four and six hours, which includes an alpine picnic lunch. Please
