Adventures in Banff: Use Discount code “BanffWhisky”

Don’t make it just about the Whisky. There are so many incredible things to do and see in Banff National Park. We planned our festival during the most beautiful time of the year. The bugs are all gone and the crowds have disappeared. In September, you can be alone on a hiking trail or while canoeing the rivers and lakes. Take a flask to the top of a mountain and enjoy a spirit in a place of uplifting spirituality. Banff really is the place to do it all and then gather around the best whisky on earth at the Banff Whisky Experience for 2 days of Master classes and Grand Tasting events!

Our adventure partners will honour these discounts from September 10th-17th, 2019 (3 days before and after the festival).
