Itinerary
Day 01
Banff

Banff - Kootenay National Park - Banff

Journey with us in the morning on a Baff snowshoeing tour to the Paint Pots. The hike to the Paint Pots is a great introduction to snowshoeing that provides insight into the fur trade and its impact on Western Canada.

Along the way hear stories of Banff’s indigenous people, explorers and fur traders who lived in and traveled through the Rockies. Snowshoe on an easy trail through the Vermilion River Valley to the Paint Pots, a cultural treasure within our National Parks.

This trip is on mostly flat terrain and you will have a chance to search for snowshoe hare, moose, and wolf tracks while exploring. Finally, near the Paint Pots you’ll be rewarded with a unique Canadian treat - hot maple taffy!

Tips:
Please input your hotel address in "meeting point" during booking and we'll confirm the pick-up schedule with you.
