1. Explore Bow River

Spend a warm, sunny day exploring Bow River on a Kayak, Canoe, or Paddle Board. Show up and enjoy drifting along the river in one of our speciality rentals. If you’re interested in spotting some of the unique fish in Bow River, fishing trips are also a great option. Relax and leave the rest up to us, as we’ll provide you with all equipment necessary to sit back and try to catch some fish. 

2. Spot local wildlife

Set your sights on Alberta’s wildlife by signing up for a wildlife tour. Whether you’d like to take a guided or self-guided tour, you’ll have the opportunity to encounter different wildlife in the Banff and Kananaskis areas. Our tours explore various areas but embrace the possibility of seeing animals, including elk, deer, bighorn sheep, and grizzly bears. Expose yourself to wildlife on our gondola, canoe, and safari tours

3. Bike Banff’s top Trails

One of the best ways to explore Banff is on a bike. Whether you want to explore the trails or the downtown core, our variety of bikes will allow you to select a bike suited to your skill level and activity choice. Choose to rent an Ebike, mountain bike, or fat tire bike, or deluxe e-bike and embark on a mountain biking adventure you won’t forget. 

4. Cruise on Lake Minnewanka

For those wanting a memorable experience on the water, a cruise boat on Lake Minnewanka is the perfect option. The Banff Lake Cruise is an excellent opportunity to sit back and enjoy the beautiful natural scenery of Banff National Park. We offer two cruising options: the Banff Lake Cruise or the Beer Voyage. While the Banff Lake Cruise is perfect for the entire family, keep in mind that the Beer Voyage is 18+. 

5. Zipline the Rockies

Ziplining is the perfect way to achieve a thrill while enjoying the natural beauty of the Rocky Mountains. Soar through the sky on our seven zip lines across the Dry Gulch Valley, and take in views of the Columbia Valley Wetlands and Purcell Mountain range. Reach new heights and book one of our zipline tours today.
