Our 4 Day Itinerary With Pursuit Collection Banff Jasper

Exploring Banff & Jasper could keep you busy for days, literally with the off grid spots to check out, the must see tourist spots and then filling up an itinerary with cool locations with Pursuit Collection Banff and Jasper.

Last year we had the chance to visit the Banff Gondola and it was a lot of fun and incredible views of Banff. This year we managed to sneak in everything and check it all off of our bucket list. The trick is to make sure you visit while the season is still mostly open and we totally recommend visiting in the Fall. It made it so much more peaceful. We didn’t run into huge crowds and taking photos everywhere was much more easier to do while it was quiet.

Our first day we took our time and drove a few hours from Emerald Lake Lodge to the Columbia Icefields Skywalk.

Columbia Icefield Skywalk

Even if you only just stop and look this drive is totally worth it. Heading up into Jasper through Jasper National Park you’ll find the Columbia Icefield Tour and Skywalk. We had the opportunity to go to the Skywalk. The four of us jumped on a tour bus that lead us up the road for about 10 minutes to the skywalk. Where we got out and enjoyed our own self-guided tour through the walk. The skywalk is made up very thick glass. I’m talking super super thick. It’s an incredible sight to see, Drew was a little nervous only if he looked down hahaha.

We took every chance to stop and read as much as we could and taking it all in. The surrounding mountains and river below. It was really such a cool thing to experience with the little ones. I recommend dressing for cooler weather and bringing along your mask and hand sanitizer!

Open Top Touring Bus

One of our next spots to visit was the brand new attraction, the Open Top Touring Bus. Taking you back to the 1930’s Banff style. Back where it all began. This bus is so exciting to be on with the open top and windows all around. It made for the most scenic ride we’ve ever had through Banff. Plus, we learnt so much and had so much fun. Our tour guide was amazing and took us all along Banff to the most must see places.

Lake Minnewanka Cruise

Each of us were totally excited for this Pursuit attraction the Lake Minnewanka Cruise! It has been around since foreverrrrr. One of the oldest attractions in Banff and on one of the largest lakes in the National Park. We dressed for the weather because it was a little chilly. Our tour guide was also another amazing one filling us in on all the fun things that has happened over the years in and around this lake. It has so much history with it.

It was about an hour long cruise on a covered boat. Which if you wanted you could sit on the back which was open a little bit. We did that with the kids but it was mighty chilly out! It was so beautiful to see all the Fall coloured trees in the mountains and the fog rolling in!

Banff Gondola

Another favourite. We did get the chance to do this last year when we went in the Winter and had to go again this time for Fall. It was as equally beautiful. The views are endless. The town can be seen all around. There is a boardwalk that is about 30 minutes-45 minutes. With a few great choice inside for meals and coffee. A patio that is open and glass all around to see. There is also a great exhibit inside for little ones to check out and adults can read some fun facts!

The ride is a short one up and down. They are very on top of clean protocols as well. I was very much impressed.

This road trip of ours was not boring nor did we have a hard time finding fun things to do. I loved our trip and I always love how wonderful Pursuit Collection puts together attractions. They always have the best employees and never disappoint in not only teaching us some great history but also making sure were amazed and see the sights that they offer!

Nothing like seeing it through your own eyes with Pursuit Collection Banff Jasper!
