Summer Sightseeing Tours

The summer months in Banff are made for exploration and outdoor adventure. As temperatures climb and the snow melts, Banff’s remote regions offer the chance to spend blue-sky days hiking, wildlife watching, whitewater rafting, and tucking into alpine picnics.

But to truly appreciate Banff in summer, we recommend exploring with a local guide. Not only will you learn more about the region you’re visiting, but you’ll get the chance to enjoy a few extra-special experiences – from trekking to a remote teahouse in the mountains, to visiting an abandoned mining town, to riding across the Athabasca Glacier onboard a massive Ice Explorer vehicle.
