And they’re off! Blue Canoe opens for the season!
Yet another sign that summer is well on its way to your Banff hotel, is the opening of Banff’s best canoe experience at the Blue Canoe docks on May 8th!
Just 2 minutes from Banff Avenue is the family friendly Blue Canoe docks located on the banks of the Bow River. Offering hourly canoe and kayak rentals, you can explore the beautiful Bow River and Vermillion Lakes around the Banff town site.
For an alternative day out from your hotel in Banff, why not jump aboard the interpretive Voyager Canoe experience! You are taken on a historic tour by your guide in period dress as he relays the history of how these boats mapped out Western Canada and what life was really like for these early explorers.
Fancy staying on dry land? You can rent one of the colourful Electra town bikes on offer at the canoe docks. With easy trails accessible straight from the docks, you can ride out to Vermillion Lakes, around Banff or follow the riverside trail to Bow Falls. Or simply sit and enjoy the relaxed atmosphere on the many picnic benches at the Blue Canoe Docks.
Summer is right around the corner at your hotel in Banff! With mid-week rates in May starting at $96, you can experience Banff without the crowds!
