Why Brewster

Brewster Travel Canada has been providing amazing natural experiences to guests of the Canadian Rocky mountains since 1892.  Starting with two young Brewster brothers providing guided excursions in the Rocky Mountain national parks, we are now a leading travel and tourism provider in Canada. We own and operate four of the biggest attractions in the Rocky Mountains; the Banff Gondola, Banff Lake Cruise, Glacier Adventure and the all new Glacier Skywalk. We are passionate, local travel experts who help all our guests get the very most out of their Canadian travel holiday.

Locals Know Best

When it comes to visiting a new destination, there is no better expert than a local. They know the places that you must-see (and avoid) and they can make recommendations based on first-hand experience. Brewster has been operating in Banff for over 120 years, and we dedicate 100% of our time to perfecting the Canadian vacation experience; from offering world-class attractions, unique hotel experiences, sightseeing tours, transportation and Canada-wide vacation packages.
