As the sun sets behind the craggy peaks, the wildlife of Banff National Park become more active in the cool hours before dark. On 95% of the tours wildlife is spotted, so this is your best chance to get up close with some of Banff’s wildest residents. Your guide will lead a paved road bus tour to the hotspots where you are most likely to see Rocky Mountain creatures. You might spot an elk sauntering across a clearing and sometimes even a grizzly bear snuffling through a berry bush. You’ll also learn about how the park protects these animals and their natural habitat from many threats to the ecosystem.
