Your Mountain Paradise
Banff is an epic playground all year round, but summer is where you really get to see the full beauty of nature in the Rockies. With plenty of colours and fresh life exploding across the Bow Valley Region, the warmer months give you the perfect opportunity to relax, unwind and plan the ultimate trip to recharge. Banff Adventures is here to help you make the most of sunny days with family fun activities like:
The Banff Gondola
Soar to new heights on the Banff Gondola! Located on the top of Sulphur Mountain, riding the Gondola is an absolute bucket-list must for any adventurer. This thrilling expedition will take you all the way up to 7,486 ft above sea level to a world-class interpretive centre that also features fine dining alongside jaw-dropping views. The Gondola makes it easy for all members of the family to get to the top of the mountain and enjoy a bird’s eye view of Banff, while also learning lots about the Bow Valley Region and the many peaks in the area.
White Water Rafting
Grab your paddle and hop into one of our big blue rafts for the adventure of a lifetime! Located just 75 minutes away from Banff in Golden, BC, the Kicking Horse River treats whitewater rafters of all experience levels to class 1-IV rapids, thrilling bends, and heart-pumping drops as you navigate the wild water with the help of our skilled guides. Banff Adventures gives you access to an ultra-exclusive river base right on the banks of the Kicking Horse, meaning you get extra time on the river and can enjoy the comfort of warm showers once you return from the ride of your life. Rafting season runs from Mid May through to the fall, giving you plenty of time to hit the water!
Saddle up and take on the west with an authentic trail ride through the Bow Valley Region with Banff Adventures. Our guides will take you on one of our existing trails in and around Banff's past iconic sights that include numerous Peaks, the Banff Springs Golf Course, and more! With trail rides suitable for all levels and even the littlest of adventures, this is a great, family-friendly option.
