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 loop tour can be enjoyed in about 3 hours, but allow more time to stop and enjoy the many attractions along the way.  It’s a great introduction to the National Park and a must-do orientation for any first time visitor to Banff.

This tour is one of 5 tours that cover the Canadian Rockies National Parks; Calgary to Banff, Banff Townsite, Banff, Lake Louise & Yoho, Icefields Parkway and Jasper National Park.  iPhone / Apple Store users have the option to download the complete Canadian Rockies Bundle (don’t forget to download the free Calgary to Banff tour).

Where does the tour start?

You can join anywhere along the loop route but a great place to start is by crossing the bridge over the Bow River and driving towards the Banff Springs Hotel. All the directions and instructions you need to follow the route are included in the commentary.

What should I bring?

Its important to keep charging your device as you drive and we recommend using a DC cigarette lighter-style of charger. Plugging directly into the vehicle’s USB port is not recommended.

Bring a warm or windproof jacket. Some of the places we visit are in elevated locations and can be cooler and windier than the bottom of the valley.

Bring sturdy shoes if you might like to enjoy some of the short hikes along the route.

Don’t forget your smile and camera.

I'm not from Canada - will I need data?

There is no requirement for any data or wifi network connection while you drive. The app only requires the FREE GPS signal to operate. You can leave your Cellular Data function turned off – the tour will still work.
