Adventure can be found just outside of Golden at the Banff ATV /Zip Line company site. The company gives guests the chance to take scenic tours on all terrain vehicles that go up trails and to waterfalls

Banff ATV and Zip line tours is giving people travelling through the Rockies or residents who live here year round the chance to zip line  or drive their way into a day of adventure.

Heather Cytowitz, one of the guides who take people on the tours held at the site, who describes her job as the best one she has ever had.

“I do tour and it is just awesome out here. I am outside all day and the staff here have fun while giving people who come in a great time,” Cytowitz said.

She went on to explain that taking the zip line or ATV tour is something with a great deal of appeal to people.

“Scenery is the number one factor. You can get up to places that would take you days to hike up just to see the view. There are waterfalls we can take you to see. When zip lining you go across the Kicking Horse River. It is just a phenomenal site,” Cytowitz said. “During the zip lining you can get up to 50 kilometres per hour. So people like the speed and thrill of it along with the adrenaline rush.

The zip line tour includes three dual zip lines that descend down the mountain side and across the Kicking Horse River.

There is a short walk between each line that allow guests to learn about nature first hand, discovering the history and mountain ecology of the area.

“If you want to a Zip and Dip you can go rafting, zip lining or ATV’ing all in the one day. But there are also hiking trails which are just endless. Everything is all right here,” Cytowitz said.
