Banff Ghost Walks

21 reviews
Nestled beneath the peaks of Mt. Rundle and Mt. Cascade, Banff is considered among Alberta’s must-see destinations—but away from the spectacular scenery lies a ghostly past only the bravest visitors can uncover. On this spooky evening walking tour, follow your guide through Banff’s historic streets and hear spine-chilling tales from beyond the grave. Learn of the unsolved crimes and terrifying encounters that haunt Banff’s dim and distant past.

This is a lovely location and worth a visit. The walk along the canyon was incredible and not too difficult. I would love to do it again in winter. It was certainly busier than we expected and we didn’t allow enough time. Our operator allowed us 1.5hrs but we probably needed 2-3 to really enjoy it. The onsite restaurant was disappointing in relation to staff service (quite rude).

Bit of a hike, but nice pathway and worth the walk! We biked down the Bow Valley Parkway during the closure.

We rode our bikes along hwy 1a during the closure, from Castle Junction. Fairly easy ride, and fun to ride in the middle of the highway! We hiked to the upper falls, which is lovely, but going through the hole in the rock at the lower falls was by far the highlight. We went late in the day and practically had the place to ourselves, which was spectacular and unusual!

Right from the parking lot and to the upper falls, this trail was just beautiful at every turn. From the babbling brooks, to the rapids as you get closer to the falls, and the the actual falls themselves, the walk and slight climbs are worth it! I think my favourite is the viewing platform to the lower falls because you just feel the power of it right in front of you. Highway 1A is closed from Castle Junction so do yourself a favour and book a reservation breakfast or brunch at Blackswift Bistro so the Parks Canada staff will let you through, otherwise, it is quite the walk to Johnston Canyon from the barricade! The bistro has a good breakfast menu!

We tried 3 times to get into this hike this summer, but with COVID they will not let people in. The best way to see it is take Bikes from the Castle Mountain Junction and then hike the 2-3 km to the falls. We hiked from the Highway which added 13 km to our trip, but well worth it. Just make sure you bring Bear Spray and good shoes. The Johnston Canyon is marvellous. So neat to see how they have wrapped the trail around cliffs and the river along the canyon.
