About Discover Banff Tours | 1:30 PM - Snowshoeing Tour to Paint Pots
Departs at 1:30 PM
Duration of 4 hours
Walking Distance: 3 km (1.86 miles) - Minimal Elevation Gain
Snowshoe on an easy trail along a bridge across the frozen Vermilion River and along the snowy path winding through a forest of pine trees to the Paint Pots, a cultural treasure within our National Park.
Learn about the history of the fur trade as you explore the fascinating Paint Pots, which are mineral deposits once used by First Nations people for rock painting.
Along the way, you will hear stories of Banff’s indigenous people, explorers and fur traders who lived in and traveled through the Rockies. After this crisp winter walk, enjoy a uniquely Canadian treat: hot maple taffy poured into the snow to make a sweet frozen dessert. Plus try a crazy carpet slide down the hill while it’s being made – kids and adults alike love this part of the tour!
This is an excellent trip for beginners as it covers a mainly flat terrain with minimal elevation gain, and also suits anyone wanting a pleasant activity outdoors in the majesty of Kootenay National Park.
Bring a printout of this page and photo IDs to the Mount Royal Hotel Bus Parking area on the order arrival date.
