Banff National Park Big Canoe Tour

Get a different view of Banff National Park on a canoe tour along the scenic Bow River. Traveling by canoe lets you get out in nature and see wildlife up close without the exertion of hiking. Plus, the big canoe enables your whole group to be together in one place rather than being split up into smaller canoes. This makes it ideal for families with small children.

Fun group of guides, had an excellent time on the river. We got wet and couldn't stop laughing the whole time. Recommend the neoprene over jacket for the extra $5

It was the best summer activity day out there. Want to say couple words about our guide - Christine. She distinguished herself as a high skilled professional in what you should do on the river. Always explaining and teaching commands, you will get an extremely friendly atmosphere in the boat with her and the last but definitely not the least - you`ll be safe and cared of.
