My husband and I came to Canada for some fun winter activities for our anniversary and decided to do a snowmobiling tour. I had ridden on the back of one 32 years ago on our anniversary but had never driven my own. All I can say it...what a blast! I can't believe I waited until I was 53 to drive one. We did the all day tour, and while I was a little worried it would be too long for someone with no prior experience, my worries for for naught. I could have stayed out there longer. And the scenery...I can't even begin to describe how incredibly beautiful it was. I have one regret for the day and that's that I left my second camera battery back at the hotel...and my camera battery died. Thank goodness for cell phone cameras! They take you up to 8000 ft and feed you lunch at what used to be an old blacksmith cabin in what used to be a mining settlement. A cozy fire inside and a filling lunch to fuel you for the free time you get to play in the basin/bowl! The on the way back down you get to stop and see some icefalls...beautiful! What an adrenaline rush the whole day was. The 2+ hour ride to get there from Banff (they provide the shuttle) was totally worth it. Our shuttle driver, John, also ended up being our guide...and he was excellent. So, if you want some excitement...pick up the phone and call Toby Creek Adventures...I promise you, you won't be sorry! Thank you, Toby Creek for such an awesome day!

All around great experience!

I set up an excursion for a group for a reward/team building experience and every person had a fantastic time. In our group, we had different ages, fitness levels and experience levels, and everyone had a fantastic time.

Our guide was professional, friendly and kept a great pace that everyone enjoyed. The scenery was out of this world and the experience was top notch.

The only suggestion would be to add an option to purchase a meal/snacks at the cabin located at the top of the mountain.

Had a great time snowmobiling! Beautiful tour and had a little free time at the end. Favorite part was when the guide took us to the frozen waterfall...absolutely beautiful.

I've done this excursion three times over the passed couple of years and it never disappoints me, it's always one of the highlights of my holiday.

The scenery is excellent and the snow conditions in February 2013 when I last went are perfect for snowmobiling.

As with most Canadians they are very friendly and teach you everything you need to know so that you enjoy your day.

If your staying in Banff, I would recommend the Paradise Basin full day tour, it does take around two and half hours to get there.

You will get food such as burgers and hot dogs halfway through the excursion and the chance to have some time.

Overall, a brilliant day out and I will be going back in the future!

Having tried a number of snowmobile tours in the past, I was not expecting to be so blown away by what Toby Creek Adventures have to offer. Beautiful terrain, knowledgeable guides and the freedom given to enjoy the snowmobiles on your own. I cannot recommend this organisation highly enough. We will be back.
