On our recent trip to Banff, the first day was overcast and many of the majestic peaks were shrouded from view! When the next day gifted us with sunshine and bright blue skies, a trip up Tunnel Mountain Drive was a must! In the early...More

Driving through the Tunnel Mountain Drive may yield some incredible wildlife photo ops for your passenger. As well as the various falls, cliffs and mountainous plateaus which can be breathtaking.

Our all-day on-road bicycle tour started and ended on Tunnel Mountain Drive. The descent into town in the morning and ascent back up to the campground road were two fun parts of a very enjoyable day.

Fantastic little hike. I am sure most people could make this hike. If your a little out of shape, just take it slow and I don't think it would be an issue to get to the top. Another fantastic view easy to access. You see...More

We did the north part of it to the hotels but the rest was already closed I assume for the season. Check before going!

A nice little drive with some great areas to pull over and enjoy the view-be sure to stop at the hoodoos viewpoint. If you want to hike up tunnel mountain, go early in the summer to get a parking spot!

We went down to look at the Hoodoos and followed the road as far as it went. Was a nice drive with trees on both sides and a couple of spots to stop and take pictures. I'd recommend it.

Lovely, scenic, well-maintained road to take in all the beautiful nature surrounding Banff. We saw mountain goats and deer.

Or... you can just drive along it slowly. Most of the spots are well marked. The speed limit is fairly low, and most people in Banff are not in a hurry, so taking a slow drive won't aggravate too many. This is a quote... More
