Full description
Embark on a ride on a horse-drawn carriage to explore the main sights of Banff in a fun, romantic, and authentic way. Each carriage can hold up to 6 passengers. Choose from 3 regular tours from downtown Banff. The Downtown Banff carriage ride is a 15-minute ride that takes you through the town and along the Bow River. Pass by many of the original homesteads of Banff, each having a story to tell. From the Bow River, pass by Banff’s Central Park and back onto Banff Avenue for your return to downtown. The Bow River carriage ride is a 30-minute ride that takes you over the Bow River and past the Indian Trading Post onto one of Banff’s prestigious residential streets. Follow the Bow River and loop back to downtown, crossing the Bow River again before returning to downtown Banff. The Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel ride is a 1-hour carriage ride along the Bow River and past Central Park. Continue over the Bow River, past the Luxton Museum, and past the world-famous Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel.
