Pass By: Banff National Park

Adventuring outside deep in the heart of Banff National Park is a phenomenal experience in any season! That being said, this is a part of the world where weather can change in an instant and temperatures stay well below freezing for most of the winter. Please layer up and dress for being outside in freezing temperatures! Please also ensure you have warm, waterproof footwear on. On this tour, your Radventures guide will determine the best times to visit each of these locations, in no particular order, based on weather conditions, big bus tour schedules & a few other factors that we as locals consider to ensure that you, as our guests, are getting the best and most authentic experience on the day.

After getting you set up with ice-skates and getting you acquainted with the area, your guide will remain with the tour van to allow for guests to come and go as they please to pick-up/drop-off ice skates or snowshoes and to have access to their belongings without having to carry them around.
