Full description
Go on an evening wildlife safari tour and discover the animals of Banff. Led by your expert guide, experience twilight wildlife encounters.  As the sun sets behind the craggy peaks, the wildlife of Banff National Park become more active in the cool hours before dark. Get the chance to be up close with some of Banff’s wildest residents. Spot an elk sauntering across a clearing or a bighorn sheep grazing in an alpine meadow. Sometimes, you may even see a grizzly bear snuffling through a berry bush.  Have your guide take you on a paved road bus tour where you are most likely to see Rocky Mountain creatures. Learn about how the park protects these animals and their natural habitat from many threats to the ecosystem.

    Absolutely wonderful experience. Andrew was an incredibly knowledgeable guide. We saw several elk and learned a great deal about the animals and park. It's an impressive skill to be able to chat for a 2 hour trip and keep people engaged. A perfect evening trip for families and adults. Highly recommend and would do this trip again.

    Good activity yes, but very dependent on animals. It is not guaranteed that you will see the animals and you have to stay on the bus most of the time.

    Very interesting and we saw elk! We were with Annick and we really enjoyed it.
