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. Take your pick between our daily tour to Marble Canyon, a 40-metre deep limestone gorge, or join our weekend expeditions to the Paint Pots and learn all about Banff’s indigenous people, explorers and fur traders – families in particular love this one for the crazy carpet slide!
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.
