November 24, 2021 - January 1, 2022

In this year of uncertainty, we're all seeking that sparkling sensation of Christmas spirit. Banff & Lake Louise Tourism is proud to present: In Search of Christmas Spirit - a live Christmas story told by the wildlife of Banff National Park and delivered by a sensory extravaganza of light, sound and social distancing. 

Outdoor Experience Details

Starting from Banff Avenue Square, In Search of Christmas Spirit is a free outdoor lighting experience available on select nights of the holiday season. The experience is ticketed to ensure social distancing and for your comfort and enjoyment.

We estimate that you will need 45-minutes to complete the story journey – an easy walk through a live Christmas story told by the illuminated wildlife of Banff National Park. 

Please consider that this takes place outdoors and to dress appropriately, including proper footwear. There is limited access, with an uneven walkway and irregular steps. You are welcome to bring walking poles with metal tips.
