THINGS TO DO IN BANFF IN WINTER

There’s nothing quite like Banff in winter, under a blanket of snow. Banff transforms into a winter wonderland, creating the perfect landscape for fun winter activities such as sleigh rides, dogsledding, snowshoeing and guided icewalks. It’s the perfect place to experience ice skating on a frozen lake, hiking to see frozen waterfalls, or playing in the snow in the Canadian Rockies.

Locally owned and operated, we have 20 years experience helping visitors and so we can guarantee you’ll find the best deals by booking direct with us, as we own and operate many of the tours and activities listed.
