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.
