What to Expect

Many visitors to the Canadian Rockies arrive through Calgary as the gateway airport. This Calgary to Banff tour is designed to provide visitors with a free and entertaining introduction to visiting the Rockies.

The drive from Calgary to Banff takes approximately 1 hour 50 mins and is a flat drive on a two lane divided highway.  The commentary includes all necessary directions to take you from the Calgary Airport or Downtown Calgary out onto the TransCanada Highway #1 towards Banff.

Along the way, we’ll introduce you to the Canadian Rocky Mountains and National Parks. We’ll provide suggestions and background information to help you decide how to plan and best spend your valuable vacation time while in the Rockies.  As we get closer, the scenery and mountains grow more spectacular with every turn.

You can even listen to this tour if you are using a bus/shuttle transfer from the airport to Banff.

As you approach the entrance to Banff National Park, the audio will let you know when to switch over to the comprehensive Canadian Rockies Tour, that covers all of the sightseeing inside the National Parks.

Note: This tour operates only as a one way drive from Calgary to Banff.  There aren’t any recommended sightseeing stops along the way as the drive is all fast-speed, divided highway.  But you will hear loads of stories and helpful information to give you a great introduction to the Rockies and help you decide how best to spend your time.
