Explore the Art in Nature Trail

Add to my moments

Banff's newest art exhibition isn't inside a gallery, and you don't need a ticket. It's part of the beauty of nature as you explore the Art in Nature Trail along the Bow River Pathway in the Banff Townsite.
In a landscape shaped by the elements, there's a sense of transformative energy that comes with the territory. The revitalizing power of the wilderness is the inspiration for 30 art installations lining the walking trails in the heart of Banff. The Art in Nature Trail follows the banks of the Bow River in an exploration of creativity, offering a different perspective for all who revere the Rockies. The exhibit starts at the Banff Park Museum National Historic Site and continues along the Bow Falls Trail, and you can enjoy the pieces until September 6th, 2021.

Come for a walk down the Art in Nature Trail with us, then come to Banff and experience these spectacular art pieces in person.
