Banff Wildlife Tours
Watch rutting elk lock horns in combat, a family of bighorn sheep grazing, and shaggy-haired grizzly bears feast on buffaloberries. 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 animals such as elk, bears, bighorn sheep, 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 these amazing animals 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.
