Banff Adventures - Ice Canyoning & Caving

Ready to explore the great outdoors like never before? Why not try some unique winter tours like caving or winter canyoning!

On our Cave tours, discover the hidden secrets of the Rocky Mountains by descending beneath Grotto Mountain and venturing through one of the longest cave systems in Canada. Perfect for year-round expeditions, these tours treat guests to incredible views of natural limestone formations include stalagmites and more.

Or rappel & hike through a world of ice on a winter canyon tour. Your professional guide will teach, assist, and coach you on how to safely manoeuvre and rappel down frozen waterfalls, and through a variety of different slot canyons frozen in mid-stream. A truly unique winter Ice adventure and the only experience of its kind in the Canadian Rockies. Escape the crowds and experience something completely different.

Never tried rappelling before, no problem! Our ice canyon guides will teach you all the necessary skills, and our canyons are progressive in their nature. That means they start off easy and grow in the length of the rappels, allowing you to grow your confidence as you descend. Our Adventure Cave Tour, also includes a rappel down into the cave! Our highly experienced guides will ensure you are trained as to how to navigate the cave and lead you through a daring adventure that showcases ancient rock and mineral formations, stalagmites and stalactites, and a stunning crystal clear pool. Please note that while there is no experience required for this tour, there is a 30 minute hike to the cave entrance and there are no walkways, handrails, or interior lighting within the cave itself. For this reason, we recommend a good level of fitness for all participants.
