Spring is here! As warmer weather begins to creep into Banff National Park and the Bow Valley Region, visitors to the area can enjoy the benefits of quieter trails and sights, as well as lower prices on accommodations during the “off-season”. If you’re looking to maximize your fun in 2023 and save along the way, visiting before the peak summer months of July and August (and into early September) is a great way to do it! Below, we’ll take a look at some of the most exciting shoulder season and early summer activities you can explore while visiting Banff. Read on to learn more!

Canyon Tours

Canyon tours are one of the best ways to make the most of the transition from winter to spring in the Rockies, where the overall summer thaw takes longer due to high altitudes. Located approximately 30 minutes from Banff, both Johnston and Grotto Canyon offer a thrilling, up-close view of the beauty of nature. Both tours will take you across gorgeous frozen wonderlands, allowing you to see how warmer weather begins to transform the region and rigid ice castles slowly melt back into rocky wonders for summer.

Our tours allow you to learn more about the region, get your blood pumping (while these adventures are accessible for most, we do recommend you have standard mobility ability for optimal safety and comfort), and see nature like never before.

Sightseeing Tours

It’s no secret that the Banff and Lake Louise areas are home to some of Canada’s most iconic landmarks and sights. From local historical places like the Banff Springs Hotel to the crystal blue waters of Lake Louise and plenty of stops in between, 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 and tours incorporating ice walks available, there are endless ways to see more in spring and early summer.

The Banff Gondola

If you’re looking for jaw-dropping views and a MUST check-off activity, this is it! Take a ride on the wild side and soar all the way to 7500 ft, to the very top of Sulphur Mountain. Once you arrive at the summit, you’ll be greeted by a beautiful interpretive centre where you can learn more about the mountain and the region as a whole. Grab a bite at the Sky Bistro for an extra special way to make the most of your time in the Rockies! Rocky Mountain adventure you’ll remember.
