1. Banff: Sightseeing and Wildlife Minibus Tour
Get picked up from your Banff hotel in a modern minibus by your friendly guide. Get ready for a morning exploring the best viewpoints and historic landmarks in Banff. Along the way, hear how the 11,000-year-old human history of the Bow Valley changed when 3 railway workers rediscovered the historical Cave & Basin hot springs, now a National Historic Site. Learn about the local wildlife and behavior, habitat, and the importance of wildlife management practices in a national park while you keep your eyes peeled for animals such as elk, deer, and bighorn sheep. Spend your time enjoying the sights, taking photos, and participating in short walks to viewpoints, on the many stops of the tour. During the tour, visit Bow Falls, where many iconic movies from the 1950s were filmed. See water crashing over ancient limestone creating a spectacle of sound and sight. Admire the famous Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel also known as the 'Castle of the Rockies'. Stop at Lake Minnewanka, Banff's largest lake to hear about the underwater village. This tour also stops at iconic viewpoints including Surprise Corner, aptly named for the 'oh wow!' iconic view of Banff, and the Hoodoos Lookout.
