Celebrate this season of renewal and spot some adorable babies during these wildlife experiences around Alberta.
- Jasper’s SunDog Tours knows just where to take you on their Winter Wildlife Discovery Tour to view moose, mountain goats, elk, deer, bighorn sheep,wolves and if you’re lucky, their fluffy and cute offspring closer to spring.
- The best time to view animals in their natural environment is at dawn or dusk. Bring out your fancy camera during the Evening Wildlife Safari with Discover Banff Tours.
