OUR WILDLIFE

Johnston Canyon Trail is a natural habitat for many of Banff’s beautiful creatures ranging from squirrels to deer.

Johnston Canyon Resort cabins are located on the Bow Valley Parkway. When driving here you might catch a glimpse of a elk, deer, sheep, coyote, black bear and occasionally a grizzly bear. Other mammals that live in the area, though rarely seen, are moose, cougar and fox. Bird species include owls, osprey, eagles.

Johnston Canyon has had the odd bear and coyote roam into the area only to be spotted, admired and photographed. However, typically these animals like to stay as far away as possible from people and do not come around the cabins and cottages.

While on the Canyon Trail watch for a Dipper or Water Ouzel : These birds love fast moving water. They will swim, dive and even walk on the bottom of a stream when feeding. Also watch for the Black Swift that nests in the Canyon walls. Johnston Canyon is one of only two known nesting sites in Alberta for the bird species.

Banff National Park is home to 53 different species of mammals. This incredible diversity of wildlife is a reflection of the wide range of habitats found in the park due to variations in elevation, climate, and plant communities.

  • We were delighted with the cabin for comfort and its furnishings. We met the cleaning staff and they were extremely courteous and friendly. We found the place rather large so we would have liked to have had a map.

    -Kari S., Edmonton, Canada
  • Our Cabin was adorable and perfect and we hope they never change it. The walk next to the resort was fabulous. The walk can get pretty busy during the day because it is such a lovely walk.

    -Larry C., Airdrie, Canada
  • We were thrilled with our cabin and the close proximity to everything that we wanted to see and do in the area. We found the staff so incredibly helpful and informative.
