Total Hunt Time
About 3 to 4 hours, depending on options selected
First settled in the 1880s after the transcontinental railway was built through the Bow Valley, Banff really made the map in 1883 when three Canadian Pacific Railway workers stumbled upon a series of natural hot springs on the side of Sulphur Mountain. The area received its name, Banff, in 1884 by George Stephen, president of the Canadian Pacific Railway, recalling his birthplace in Banffshire, Scotland. With its tremendous physical beauty, Banff today is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Canada, with soaring mountain tops, well-maintained hiking trails, crystalline lakes, and an over-all, laid-back Canadian vibe. Your treasure hunt in the quaint town of Banff might include visits to: giant bear heads on the back of a parking lot; a sculpture celebrating an 1880’s mountain camp; a ski museum; at least two totem poles, and much, much more. Treasure hunting and great mountain scenery – how can you beat that!
