Banff Wildlife Tours
Watch rutting elk lock horns in combat, giant moose strut across the landscape, and shaggy-haired grizzly bears fish for salmon in glacial-fed rivers. Seeing these creatures for the first time is a true Banff experience. On our wildlife watching tours, there’s no knowing what animals you might end up spotting. But our eagle-eyed guides know the top places to visit for the best chances of a sighting.
On our popular Evening Wildlife Safari, keep your eyes peeled for elk, moose, deer and coyotes. To guarantee seeing a bear, join our Grizzly Bear Refuge Tour and meet “Boo” – an orphaned bear who lives and plays in the world’s largest enclosed and protected grizzly bear habitat.
Learn about wolfdogs and meet them up close at the Yamnuska Wolfdog Sanctuary, a not-for-profit organisation that offers a variety of tours to educate the public on wolfdogs and raise awareness regarding wolf conservation.
