Join a local expert, live from Banff National Park, as they allow participants to see firsthand the sites and natural splendor through this camera-held virtual tour.
Canada's first and most famous national park is internationally renowned for its beauty. Once an ancient sea bed, the Rockies were thrust up and east through plate tectonics and then sculpted by glaciers. The region's history stretches back over 11,000 years with Europeans gradually arriving and settling as Canada became a dominion. As we learn more about the history of this region, the video-camera-led virtual tour will weave and wind its way through this inspiring destination creating opportunities for reflection, dialogue, and an immersive visual experience.
Led by a Banff resident, international guide, and author, Patrick Twomey, this interactive seminar will introduce participants to the wonders of Banff National Park. Designed to inform curiosity as well as future travels, participants will come away with a snapshot into the Canadian landscape.

90 minutes, including a 30 minute Q&A.
This was a wealth of information - way more than I expected. I do not know how Patrick keeps all these facts in his head and he talked for 90 minutes without a break / while walking and filming. Fabulous presentation.
Excellent guided walk and tour. Felt I was there experiencing the place again
I am officially a fan of Patrick Twomey! His knowledge of the subject was apparent. He shared so much information and it's clear he truly appreciates the beauty of Canada.
Mr. Twomey gave a very informative and engaging live virtual tour of Banff. I'm not sure that another person could have pulled it off, but Patrick did it very well. He provided historical, geologic and cultural background information as well as general tourism info.
Patrick Twomey is an excellent guide and a wealth of information about the BC area and Banff area and park.
