Banff National Park | Winter Classic | Off the Beaten Path

Visiting Banff National Park during winter season will show you a sparkling, icy, snow-dusted side of the Canadian Rockies. The first couple of weeks of December are considered “off-peak” so it’s a good time to visit. For those who really want to explore the snow and see park in the peak of winter – visiting during February or March is the best. You simply cannot visit Banff National Park without seeing Lake Louise! When exploring the lake you can try out ice skating or enjoy afternoon tea at the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise. You don’t need to be a skier or snowboarder to enjoy Banff in winter! During this tour you can test out yourself the Mt. Norquay or Lake Louis tubing park. It's fun...be a Kid Again!
