Horseback Trail Ride

Back in the 19th century, the Rocky Mountains were gruelling to navigate on foot. Our Banff horseback riding tours are designed to give you a taste of what these brave settlers experienced more than 200 years ago.

First-time riders can gain experience in the saddle on our scenic one-hour rides. Pass by the historic Cave and Basin – the birth place of Banff National Park. Here craggy rock walls surround pools of bubbling thermal water.  And of course, as you follow the winding trail on this ride, you’ll get unspoiled views of the magnificent Rocky Mountains the entire time.

Adult: $62
Youth: $62
1 Hour Bow River Ride
Tours depart every hour 9am-6pm


Evening Wildlife Safari

As the sun sets behind the craggy peaks, the wildlife of Banff National Park become more active in the cool hours before dark. We see wildlife on 95% of our tours, so this is your best chance to get up close with some of Banff’s wildest residents.

Your guide will lead a safari to the hotspots where you are most likely to see Rocky Mountain creatures. You might spot an elk sauntering across a clearing, a mountain goat perched high on a ridge, and sometimes even a grizzly bear snuffling through a berry bush. You’ll also learn about how the park protects these animals and their natural habitat from many threats to the ecosystem.
