Dogsledding – Winter

THE BUCKET-LIST ACTIVITY YOU ARE WAITING FOR - Dogsledding is an exciting way to enjoy the landscapes of Banff National Park in winter.

For added excitement, try mushing the sled yourself and guiding a team of dogs down the trail!

Icewalk – Winter

Strap on a pair of “icers” and grab you camera for this amazing experience that will bring you face to face with towering frozen waterfalls, deep canyon walls and pristine mountain streams.

Ski & Snowboard – Winter

WORLD-CLASS RESORTS - Impressive mountains and heaps of dry powder snow await downhill skiers and snowboarders in Banff National Park. Three ski areas are located within a close drive from the Town of Banff and give you unspoiled views as you carve the hills. With a total of 7,700 acres of developed terrain suitable for beginners and experts alike, the ski season here stretches from November to May.

Banff Upper Hot Spring – All Seasons

NATURAL REJUVENATION - With an average temperature of 37 degrees Celsius, the Banff Upper Hot Springs offers particularly special conditions to go for a warm, soothing soak in wintertime. As snow gently falls on the surrounding peaks, you can take a deep breath and relax amidst steaming waters.

Helicopter Tours – All Seasons

THE “WOW” YOU ARE LOOKING FOR - For a birds-eye view of the Canadian Rockies, helicopter tours are available for sightseeing and begin in the mountain areas neighbouring Banff National Park. Tours last from 20 minutes to 1 hour, depending on how long you’d like to stay up in the air! From above, you can view alpine lakes, sweeping glaciers and impressive peaks, such as the highest mountain in Banff National Park, Mount Assiniboine.

Horse-drawn Sleigh Rides – Winter

ENJOY THE MAGIC OF WINTER - Nothing could be more special than sipping on a cup of hot cocoa as you ride through snow-filled trails on a horse-drawn sleigh. Hop onboard, snuggle under a wool blanket and enjoy the scenery as horses clip-clop their way among snow-topped evergreen trees.
