Banff Snowshoeing Tours

When Europeans first settled in Western Canada, they soon discovered the hardship of trekking across the unforgiving winter landscape. Snowshoes offered a welcome alternative — less tiring and a faster way of getting around. Today, snowshoeing is still one of the quickest (and most fun) ways to travel on foot in Banff – and it’s incredibly easy to get the hang of. Join our daily snowshoeing tour to Marble Canyon and admire the dramatic icy colours of this 40-metre deep limestone gorge and look for animal tracks while snowshoeing, or combine a snowshoe sampler with a sightseeing visit to Lake Louise.

The extra treat on these trips? You get to warm up with hot chocolate and a delicious maple taffy — made fresh in the snow by our guides.

Highlights

  • Great introduction to snowshoeing for first-timers
  • Search for hare, lynx and wolf tracks in the forest
  • Snowshoes, hiking poles and authentic historical props are included
  • Warm up with hot chocolate and a uniquely Canadian maple taffy treat!
