Brewster excursions offer some of the best tours available in Banff and Banff National Park. Whether you would like to go on a tour of Banff and its immediate surroundings, or you would like to explore Lake Louise, the Columbia Icefield, or Jasper, you are sure to find a tour to suit your itinerary.
Brewster have been showing visitors the Canadian Rockies for over 100 years, and still today offer an ideal combination of tours and must-see attractions that should form a part of any visitor’s itinerary.
The Banff Gondola is one of Banff’s ‘must do’ activities and it gives you the best mountain view in the Banff area, a view normally reserved for mountaineers. Access to the gondola is from the base of Sulphur Mountain, which is a 5 minute drive from downtown Banff, and is serviced by Banff’s transit bus. Also in the vicinity are the Banff Upper Hot Springs, a naturally heated spring-fed outdoor pool, where you can ‘take the waters’ and admire the view year round. A ride on the gondola and a visit to the hot springs is a great way to spend half a day. You could also include the gondola ride as part of a Banff sightseeing tour.
No trip to Banff National Park is complete without visiting the Columbia Icefield and taking a tour on Brewster’s Ice Explorer. This once in a lifetime experience takes you out onto 400 year old ice with an interpretive guide on a 5km round trip journey. The Columbia Icefield is located on the border of Banff and Jasper National Parks, and is an ideal place to stop while travelling between Banff and Jasper. You could also visit the Icefield on a day trip from Banff, either in your own car or on a guided tour.
