Sightseeing in Banff

Banff National Park, Golden, and Lake Louise are bordered by the Waputik, Bow and Blue Ranges. These ranges are home to vastly different formations and landmarks such as mountain peaks, glaciers, lakes, wetland marshes, rivers, waterfalls, canyons, limestone caves, sand dunes, and fossil beds. These natural features make Banff an excellent sightseeing destination. The Bow River, snaking through Banff and flowing as far as Hudson’s Bay in Eastern Canada, is a popular site for tourists who are seeking an invigorating way to experience the Rockies.

 

What to expect

A recent sightseeing attraction added to the park is the Glacier Skywalk, located on the Icefield Parkway. This see-through glass and metal walkway arcs for more than a kilometre (0.6 mile) over a 280-metre (920-foot) drop. This attraction is included on our Columbia Icefield Discovery Tour. Our half day or full day sightseeing tours include feature stops at Lake Louise, Moraine Lake as well as Emerald Lake and Takkakaw Falls. Or if exploring at your own pace is more your style, check out the Hop On / Hop Off options.
