Spring is around the corner (even though the alpine snow may still have us braving the chill for a while longer), and with the Bow Valley and Banff National Park getting ready to explode with colour and new life, now is the perfect time to book your next Rocky Mountain getaway! Embrace the joy of shoulder season and less visitor traffic and plan the ultimate escape with the help of Banff Adventures. Below, we’ll highlight a few of the best activities to enjoy shoulder season and plan the perfect spring break getaway in Banff. Read on to learn more!
The Yamnuska Wolfdog Sanctuary
Located just outside of Banff in Cochrane, Alberta, the Yamnuska Wolfdog sanctuary is an incredible experience that allows you to get up close and personal with majestic creatures that are just as loving as they are wild. Dedicated to the preservation and education of the public about wolf dogs, the staff at Yamnuska are happy to help visitors learn what wolf dogs are, and why it is so important to give them the support they need to thrive. With interactive tours available all year round, this is a great idea for canine lovers and is suitable for participants 15 years old and up.
The Banff Gondola
The Banff Gondola is a year-round favourite, but one of the best parts of visiting in Spring is that you’re less likely to have trouble booking your ideal time slot. This thrilling adventure takes you all the way to the top of Sulphur Mountain where you can enjoy fine dining, an interactive information centre and plenty of jaw dropping views of the valley springing back to life.
Want to see more of Banff National Park, but aren’t too sure where to start? Sightseeing tours are a fantastic way to make sure you see all the greatest hits like Johnston Canyon, Lake Louise (private tours available), Sulphur mountain and more. With several options available, finding the right choice to showcase Banff is easy!
If you’re looking to see the best views throughout Banff and Bow Valley, dedicated sightseeing tours are a fantastic way to make sure you see all the greatest hits while also giving you the flexibility to make your plans along the way. With private tours, snowshoe tours, and tours incorporating ice walks available, there are endless ways to see more!
Last Call for Winter!
One of the best parts (and most challenging aspects) of being in the mountains is that our weather is often unpredictable. Mother Nature loves to let winter hang around for an extra while sometimes, meaning that snow lovers have one last chance to hit the Rockies before warmer weather rolls in. If you want one last crack at a winter adventure, take advantage of our ski and board rentals, snowshoe rentals and other winter activities to get your fill before next year!
