#3 Banff Bachelorette Ideas & Stagette Party Ideas-Horseback Riding
There is a number of different options out there when it comes to horseback tours of the Rockies or trails around the Banff wilderness but they depend upon rider ability. The horses are well behaved and the scenery is stunning, so this is a great chance for truly awesome experiences for your Banff party adventure!
#4 Banff Bachelorette Ideas & Stagette Party Ideas-Hiking
There is an abundance of hiking trails in and around Banff National Park and Lake Louise, 1600 kilometers worth in fact! They range from short walks around the town of Banff to much longer and challenging hikes that promise amazing views. We recommend heading up the mountains in a gondola and then follow the hikes around the summit so you can avoid too much uphill hiking, especially if you are not a hiking expert.
Another popular option is doing a Tea House Hike, where you can reward yourself for doing the hiking with a delicious slice of cake and cup of coffee- it’s the best of both worlds! The Lake Agnes Tea House was built in 1901 and the hike up to the tea house offers incredible views of Mirror Lake and Lake Agnes.

#6 Banff Bachelorette Ideas & Stagette Party Ideas- Pamper time!
If all the long walks and outdoor activities (or a big night out) has worn you out then a spa trip is just what you need.
A must whilst you’re in a Banff is to head to Banff Upper Hot Springs. The hot springs were discovered in 1883 by three Canadian Pacific Railway workers and have been popular ever since. A soak in the steamy hot mineral water after a long hike or a night on the town will leave you feeling relaxed and rejuvenated! We highly recommend heading to the hot springs at sunset or first thing in the morning so that you get the most amazing views whilst you relax on your Banff Stagette.
If a traditional Spa is more your thing then head over to the Red Earth Spa or Willow Stream Spa Both Spas offer a wide range of different treatments as well as access to the hotels hot pool, steam room and gym to spoil your Banff bachelorette party.
Booking Butlers in the Buff is the icing on the cake
