Why Visit Banff in Winter?

It’s no secret that Banff is one of Canada’s biggest outdoor playgrounds that bustles with activity all year round. During the warmer months, the mountains draw in plenty of outdoor enthusiasts eager to take on the many hiking trails in the area, campers, and thrill-seekers of all kinds. The winter is no exception, with the Rockies transforming into a snowy paradise full of potential and fun waiting around every corner. Far from being JUST a skier’s dream (though you’ll find 3 world-renowned hills in the region), there are endless ways to adventure and make the Canadian wild your own. Visitor favourites during winter include:

Dog Sledding

If you’re looking for something epic to shake off the winter blues, a dog-sledding expedition is just what the doctor ordered! Enjoy a unique activity rooted in Canadian history and treat yourself to a fun-filled afternoon spent zooming around Spray Lakes Provincial Park or Lake Louise. These iconic Canadian destinations treat you to sweeping views and an awe-inspiring backdrop that’s sure to leave you with life long memories of the Rockies. Ranging from 1.5 - 2 hrs in duration, our dog sled tours are suitable for adventurers ages 2 and up, and are one of the most unique opportunities you’ll ever have to see and experience the full wonder of the wild!

Sleigh Rides

Nothing brings a winter wonderland to life quite like dashing through the snow. Capture the magic of the season with your nearest and dearest and hop on one of our western sleigh rides, OR treat yourself to an extra special adventure on either couples oriented (complete with Belgian chocolate) private sleigh ride in a true one-horse open sleigh. Sleigh rides are a classic winter activity that is accessible to everyone and gives you plenty of opportunities to relax and unwind while exploring Banff.


Looking to rev things up a bit? While recreational vehicles aren’t allowed in Banff National Park to protect flora and fauna, Golden and Panorama, BC (located approximately 2 hrs outside of the park) are world-renowned for their snowmobiling trails. Zoom through plenty of fresh powder and get your share of thrills as you enjoy several different types of tours ranging in length and skill requirements from beginner to advanced, all with the help of our experienced guides.

Adventure Packages

Want to extend your fun and save? Our winter activity package give you more excitement for less! Combine a sleigh ride with a trip on the Banff Gondola, Ice Walk, or other favourite activity to make the most of your time in the Rockies.
