Description

Drink in sights of Banff's rugged beauty during a tour to some of the top sightseeing destinations in the Canadian Rocky Mountains. The Town of Banff is an island of culture and history, surrounded by a sea of untamed wilderness and this morning tour enriches your visit with stories of 11,000 years of history, hidden in these rugged hills. Fall in love with the area where Canada founded its first national park, making stops at Bow Falls, Surprise Corner and Lake Minnewanka.

Your tour begins with convenient pick-up, followed by a mesmerising drive through Banff's back-country. Keep your eyes peeled for elk and mule deer while you shuttle through the wilderness en route to Bow Falls. At Bow Falls, marvel at the charging waterfall from the comfort of the comfortable mini coach, or emerge from the vehicle to feel the rapids' misty spray on your skin. You'll then travel to the Surprise Corner lookout for the “oh wow!” view of the iconic Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel.

You'll also visit Lake Minnewanka, Banff National Park's largest lake, visit a series of hoodoos where you can soak up sights of lush alpine valleys and jagged mountain peaks that extend as far as the eye can see. At Lake Minnewanka, learn the history of a former underwater village and savour a light snack before cruising back into downtown Banff.

Did not find it value for money. Our guide although pleasant was a little over the top and cheesy with his commentary. Just our personal opinion of course.
