More Info

Banff is a natural place to experience ice climbing, as the vast nature of the countryside and cold and mountainous landscape offers a large number of ice climbing locales.

Some of the ice climbing can be quite tough, so being fit and in good shape before arriving is recommended, as it will ensure you enjoy everything more.

The town itself is a great place to relax when not ice climbing, with many restaurants and bars around.

In winter the temperatures can get extremely cold, so pack appropriately so as not to get caught out, and to maximise your comfort and enjoyment.

What a thrilling experience! My husband has been wanting to Ice Climb for some time, so I arranged this during
our ski trip to Banff. Needless to say the process was easy, all gear, lunch and transportation was arranged for us. Being on vacation you dont always have everything you need for a trip like this, our guide Patrick thought of everything, he even brought extra clothing for us in case we needed more warmth!! The whole adventure was more than we hoped for, thank you so much to Patrick and the team for making this memorable!!
