Morning & Afternoon: Larch Season Hike
Evening: Dinner at 1888 Chop House
Morning & Afternoon
Instead of navigating this hike alone, Fairmont Banff Springs offers a guided private experience of Sentinel Pass or Effiel Lake. This tour includes transportation, picnic-style lunch and snacks, one non-alcoholic drink, use of a Go-Pro and keepsake memory card, water, equipment and a guide! This allows visitors more time to enjoy the sights and sounds of Banff National Park.
OUR TIP – Here’s a sneak peek of the views!
Now that your big day of hiking and adventuring is nearing a close, why not indulge in a delicious and authentic dinner at 1888 Chop House? After all, you’ve earned it.
Dining at 1888 Chop House is a real treat – from exceptional service to food made with local ingredients (hello, Alberta beef), the evening even starts with a champagne cart rolling by!
OUR TIP – Calories don’t count in the mountains – so if you were thinking of that luscious dessert in 1888 – go for it!
Afternoon: Cocktail Classes at Rundle Bar
Evening: Dinner and Drinks at Rundle Bar
After all that eating and all those adventures, it’s time to enjoy some downtime. It’s time to hit the Spa at Fairmont Banff Springs. Enjoy the quiet lounge, mineral pool or the three different temperature waterfalls; there are even saunas, steam rooms and indoor and outdoor hot tubs and more!
Are you looking for more? Of course, with an extensive treatment list – rejuvenating facials and relaxing body treatments are just part of the Banff spa experience.
OUR TIP: There’s more to the spa at the Castle – there’s even a fully equipped salon which offers makeup applications, hair styling (and cutting) and the opportunity to get that mani/pedi!
After your relaxing afternoon at the spa, head to the Rundle Bar to enjoy a cocktail class – hosted by one of our famed mixologists. During the cocktail class, you’ll be treated to not one, not two, but three of our delicious regional cocktails. Spend the next hour tasting the different liquors and ingredients that make up these drinks, sampling the finished product and watching as the mixologist creates fabulous concoctions right in front of your eyes!
You won’t have to travel far to enjoy the rest of your evening! Once your cocktail class wraps, head down the stairs to the main bar area and find the perfect spot to perch and watch the evening go by. If your stay overlaps on the weekend – enjoy the sounds of a DJ setting the atmosphere for a great evening.
Once seated – scan the cocktail menu (so many to try, so little time) and indulge in some beautiful eats as the evening and your stay draw to a close.
