Snowshoeing

Snowshoeing in Banff is spectacular and when Europeans first settled in Western Canada, they soon discovered the hardship of trekking across the winter landscape. Snowshoes offered a welcome alternative — a less tiring and faster way of getting around.

More About Snowshoeing in Banff National Park

Today, snowshoeing in Alberta is still one of the quickest (and most fun) ways to travel on foot, especially in Banff, because the snowshoe trails and scenery throughout the national park are exceptional! Find some of the best snowshoeing near Calgary, with several options for scenic and fun snowshoeing tours in Banff.

Join our  Marble Canyon snowshoeing tour and admire the dramatic icy colours of this 40-metre deep limestone gorge and look for animal tracks while snowshoeing. Or join a Lake Louise snowshoeing tour in the forests with a dramatic ending on the famous lake overlooking the Chateau Lake Louise. Alternatively, snowshoe to the historical Paint Pots in Kootenay National Park.

The extra treat on these trips? You get to warm up with hot chocolate and a delicious maple taffy — made fresh in the snow by our guides.

Are you visiting us on one of our tours soon? 

Our team has curated 3 things to know before visiting Banff National Park in May!

1. Pack layers! While temperatures can be warmer during the day, it tends to drop at night. Be prepared for temperature changes by packing layers to accommodate both. 

2. May is in the shoulder season. The park is less crowded for a more enjoyable experience. Take in the sights and sounds of nature with a more intimate experience.

3. May means more options. While snow has started to thaw in lower altitudes, many of the ski lodges are still in service through the middle of the month. You could quite literally go on a hiking and ski adventure on the same day.
