Booked an ice climbing tour through Banff adventures, and the whole process was completely painless and easy. All done over email and not a problem at all. The ice climbing was incredible. Probably not for people who aren't fairly active, it's quite demanding. It's an awesome experience though, sure at times you feel like you're about to fall to your... More

I booked three trips with Banff Adventures. First I went snowshoeing, second I went for an icewalk and lastly I went on a snowmobile ride. The snowshoeing was amazing. We had good weather, nice guide and a great time. Everything worked out and it was definitely worth the money. My second trip was the icewalk at Johnston Canyon. It was... More

EXCELLENT!!! The best part of our trip! Our guide Marc was phenomenal! He was very knowledgeable and informative. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Ask for Marc if you can. It is a bit of a hike but worth it for the views. We did the afternoon walk and the weather was perfect.

Went on the Johnston canyon ice walk. Beautiful scenery anytime of year. Winter is different perspective. Good service, knowledgeable guide. But really - spend the money on your own traction aids and do the hike on your own up the free public trail at your own pace. If you are much of a hiker you will find the pace slow... More

We booked several trips through Banff Adventures before our holiday to Canada and I cannot recommend this company highly enough. Each trip was highly organized and we were impressed by how friendly and passionate our tour guides were. One trip that was particularly memorable was the Lake Louise/Dog Sledding trip. Our guide Anik was extremely knowledgeable and offered fun facts... More

Must do the sleigh ride through either Banff adventures or Brewster in Banff and Lake Louise, respectively, if you haven't done a sleigh ride in winter. Have done the wagon ride when there was also not enough snow cover in the valley, and not as lovely but they do try to provide at least something. Bundle up in winter!

I orginally had booked the Horse and Hound tour consisting of a sleigh ride and dog sled tour with a group of people.

Hello Thank you for your feedback. Unfortunately in December, Banff experienced a cold snap with freezing temperatures and little snow fall. This impacted the tours that could operate. The sleigh rides couldn't run because there wasn't enough snow on the trail for the sled. We were offering horse drawn wagon rides as an alternative. In regard to your dogsled tour,... More

My husband and I went on a dog sledding and helicopter tour. The views were spectacular and it was so much fun getting to mush the dog team. The staff and dogs were friendly and there was photo opportunities.
