Now in its sixth UK edition, the Banff Tour has a reputation that’s fast becoming legend. It brings together the outdoors and adventure community for a night of inspiration and reignites peoples’ passion to get outside – whatever their sport, whatever their level.

“More than stunning climbing, skiing, biking, and paddling films – there’s something special about the spirit of the Banff collection,” says UK Tour Director, Nell Teasdale.

“Banff Mountain Festival stories are about reaching beyond ourselves – about people pushing the boundaries of what they can achieve.”

Arctic Swell: Film Synopsis
Photographer Chris Burkard and his surfing companions brave sub-zero temperatures and blizzards in the Arctic Circle to capture moments of raw beauty in conditions that rank among the harshest in the natural world. The bitter, cold seas and wind exact a large price on their minds and bodies, but the rewards are great and pushes them to tackle the next frontier.
