Your go-to for getting to and from Norquay.

Here at Norquay, we love our beautiful home in the heart of Banff National Park, and we aim to protect the habitat and wildlife that makes your visit so special.

This is why we provide a free, return, shuttle bus service from Banff for Norquay guests, and hikers looking to explore the trailheads around the ski resort.

Our free shuttle service operates hourly during the day in the summer. In the snowy season the shuttle runs hourly during the morning with afternoon returns and services night skiing on Friday and Saturdays when operating.

And the best part? Your ride to Norquay isn’t just free – it’s scenic, too! After collecting you from a variety of convenient stops around Banff, our shuttle bus drives you up the beautiful switchback roads directly to our doorstep. Dropping off outside the North American Lodge in summer months and the Cascade Lodge in the winter.

No need to book a seat – just hop on at one of the designated pick-up locations, and you’re on your way to Norquay! **
