Overview
Join an animal-spotting bus tour in Banff National Park, observing the park’s amazing wildlife at dusk on this 2-hour, small-group tour that’s perfect for nature enthusiasts. Enjoy Banff’s beautiful landscapes in the evening searching for elk, deer, bears and more because each tour has a 95% success rate of viewing animals in their natural environment. You'll also hear about the park's efforts to protect animals and their habitat from your expert guide.
What to Expect
This Banff wildlife safari is the perfect opportunity to spot the park’s amazing creatures during their most active evening period, all set against the beautiful landscape of the Canadian Rockies.

After an early evening pickup in Banff, you’ll head into the park with your guide. As the tour passes through the park’s diverse mountain landscapes, keep your eyes peeled for sightings of animals such as sheep, elk, deer and bears as they begin their evening activity. Your guide will share additional details about these amazing creatures and their unique habitat, along with some of the challenges of trying to protect them and a stop will be made at an interactive touch table to view rare animal props and artifacts.

At the end of the two hours, you’ll be dropped back in downtown Banff, arriving with a newfound appreciation and understanding of the incredible wildlife that calls this area home.

Please note: this tour is seasonal and only operates from April through October.
