Year Round Sightseeing Tours

One of the best things about Banff National Park is just how accessible the scenery is. Impressive waterfalls, alpine lakes, craggy peaks and surging rivers sit just a stone’s throw from the scenic roads and highways, making Banff the ideal place to join a guided sightseeing tour. With the help of a knowledgeable guide you’ll gain a better understanding of the landscape, the stories of the people who have explored it, and the wildlife you might encounter along the way.

Choose from a sightseeing tour of the Icefields Parkway or explore beautiful alpine lakes, such as Lake Minnewanka, Lake Louise and Moraine Lake! Tours are available year-round, and though some roads are not open in winter there are still plenty of scenic locations to discover. Tours include lunch and opportunities to buy gifts for friends and family back home.

Self-Guided Tours and Scenic Drives

If you’re keen to cruise on your own, Banff National Park has plenty of scenic drives you can explore with your own vehicle. A GPS-guided driving tour will take you to places you may not have visited on your own, and fill you in on the fascinating details about each location.
