Sightseeing Tours Attractions & Entertainment

Relaxing on a lakeshore is fun. Taking a two-hour boat tour and watching a moose eat lunch? Even better. Sightseeing tours make the extraordinary, extra-extra amazing. ● Try it: Book a trip on a gondola or tramway to the top of a mountain. See the kinds of valley views once reserved for only the most intrepid climbers. ● Only here: How about seeing something nobody’s seen before? Take a guided archaeological dig in the Badlands and uncover never-before-seen fossils. ● Road Trip: Follow the Cowboy Trail, the Icefields Parkway or plan your own self-guided sightseeing tour on four wheels. 

What makes a perfect vacation? A chance to relax, of course. Stunning scenery, certainly. But there's usually another essential in the equation: The opportunity to experience something extraordinary and thought-provoking that changes you forever.

2018-07-05 To 2018-07-10 MST

Sin Fest is a celebration of the community that hosts this world-class event and the athletes who push themselves to the max. We know that when you are supporting a family member or friend in the race, there is a lot of downtime between meeting your person at the transition areas. If you are running, it’s nice to enjoy some of the local entertainment while you are here. So we are working with a number of attractions and local organizations to provide you a weekend that isn’t just about running! There will be an outdoor community market, guided hiking trips, mountain biking, an eating contest, access to the outdoor pool, historical presentations at the Frank Slide Interpretive Centre, and a bumping night scene at Pass Powderkeg, Ground Zero for Sin Fest!
