    We specialize in personalized small-group tours.  Why? Because we believe that this style of travel offers the best way for people to truly appreciate the culture, history and stories behind the Canadian Rockies.

    We’ve been operating with this philosophy since we first opened our doors in 1998.

    Although we’ve grown over the years, our goal remains the same: helping travellers get a memorable, one-of-a-kind experience while visiting Banff.

    • Banff National Park

    Where do you find the animals of Banff when the sun goes down? Your guide will know! So keep your eyes peeled for twilight wildlife encounters.

    As the sun sets behind the craggy peaks, the wildlife of Banff National Park become more active in the cool hours before dark. We see wildlife on 95% of our tours, so this is your best chance to get up close with some of Banff’s wildest residents.

    Your guide will lead a paved road bus tour to the hotspots where you are most likely to see Rocky Mountain creatures. You might spot an elk sauntering across a clearing, bighorn sheep grazing in an alpine meadow and sometimes even a grizzly bear snuffling through a berry bush. You’ll also learn about how the park protects these animals and their natural habitat from many threats to the ecosystem.
