“Great view of Banff”

Tunnel Mountain Drive
Ranked #12 of 50 things to do in Banff
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 23, 2013

We like hiking in Alberta but sometimes a drive is what is needed. The periodic stops allowed for some great photo opportunities and a bit of sightseeing for those who maybe have challenges hiking for views.

It was pretty - at one of the stops you can see some hoo doos down the hill (not as close us as you can see them near Drumheller)... pretty and scenic but no wildlife and rather disappointed that ther were no tunnel...

This is one of the attractions in Banff. We went for a short walk and saw the Hoodoos. They were nothing compared to Bryce Park in Utah but there is a beautiful view of the Bow Valley and the mountains in the distance. There are long and short trails around for hikers.

This is a lovely short drive around the Banff area. As well as enjoying the wonderful views we were fortunate enough to see wildlife during our trip. Well worth including this drive in your schedule when visiting Banff.

From our accommodation it was easier to access by using this drive so we stopped a couple of times to look at the view. You can often see some wildlife in the valley so take binoculars.
