What to Expect

Banff National Park was first conceptualized after hot springs were “discovered” by a pair of railway workers. Since its inception Banff National Park has remained one of the world’s most beautiful and iconic protected areas on the planet. Wildlife is often seen in and around the town.

We tour to the must-see sites and viewpoints, man-made and natural, in and around the Town of Banff. This driving loop tour can be enjoyed in about 3 hours, but allow more time to stop and enjoy the dozen or so attractions and excellent viewpoints along the way.

Expect to spend a couple of hours each if visiting Banff Gondola and the Lake Minnewanka Cruise.

FAQ

Do I need a National Park Pass for visiting Banff townsite?

The town is contained inside Banff National Park – so yes, if you are visiting the town of Banff, then you are inside the Park and you are required to purchase a Park Pass.

Is this tour included in the Canadian Rockies tour?

Yes. All of the commentary from this tour is in the comprehensive Canadian Rockies tour. If you plan to do more touring than just around the town of Banff itself, then the Canadian Rockies tour is the best option and commentary automatically transitions for one area to the next – so no need to download anything extra or switch apps while you are driving.

How do I start this tour?

This tour is a one-way loop drive to follow and all driving instructions are included in the audio. All you have to do is simply join the route wherever is closest to you. There is no need to start in any particular place, but the tour does have some suggested places that are easy for most visitors.

The tour is never more than 20 minutes away from the town, so it is easy to leave the route, say to go for lunch, and then rejoin the tour from the same area, or from somewhere else.
