Banff Tours & Holidays
Join us on a holiday to Banff
Banff is primarily known as a fantastic destination for ski holidays, with dozens of great ski areas, some of the best apres ski venues in Canada, and even sleigh rides.
In the summer, however, the town of Banff and Banff National Park provides fantastic opportunities for hiking and climbing, as well as cultural pursuits. The Canadian Rockies are among some of the most dramatic mountains on earth, and although they’re home to predators like the grizzly bear, they’re safe on the trails and ripe for exploration. Natural highlights like Bow Falls, Emerald Lake, and the stunning glacial scenery of the Icefields Parkway are unmissable. And that’s not mentioning the breath-taking Columbia Icefields, the chance to climb Sulphur Mountain and Mt Norquay, or exploring the idyllic area around Lake Minnewanka.
Of course, skiing and town-life is a huge part of what makes Banff special, even with the astounding nature surrounding it. Downtown Banff is full of great restaurants, bars, and shopping, despite being right in the heart of the Canadian Rocky Mountains. And the skiing is world-famous for a reason: a lift pass grants you access to some of Canada’s best slopes, and once you get on the Banff Gondola and see the sweeping white stretch out beneath you, you’ll never want to leave.
To make the most of your Banff holiday, journey from Jasper, on the Icefields Parkway via sparkling Lake Louise to Banff. Choose from our amazing tours to Banff.
