Winter Sightseeing Tours

In the depths of winter, Banff National Park feels like nowhere else on earth. Pine forests creak under the weight of freshly fallen snow, giant lakes freeze over with shimmering ice and elk scour the backcountry in search of food. On our Banff and Lake Louise winter tours, local guides will lead through you this icy wilderness, teaching you about the natural environment, historic sights, and the survival habits of the region’s wildlife.

Your mode of transportation? How about snowshoeing by glittering Lake Louise, taking a wind-in-your hair dog sledding ride or simply hiking through the stunning terrain. Whatever way you choose to see Banff in winter, it always feels magical.
