Located in Alberta province, Banff National Park was the first national park established in Canada, and today more than 3.3 million tourists come to explore the park each year. Set amongst the iconic Rocky Mountains, this area is so picturesque and memorable that it is worthy of a lengthy stay. The mountain lake of Lake Louise is a favourite spot to discover. No matter what time of year you visit, Banff is undeniably one of the world’s best alpine destinations.
Luxury Resort Accommodation
Spectacular mountain-top resorts such as the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel, the Rimrock Resort Hotel and the Banff Rocky Mountain Resort are luxury destinations in themselves. In the heart of the Rockies they not only serve the weary ski bunnies, but travellers seeking an alpine escape complete with spa packages, golf courses and fine dining. Stunning architecture and views will make your Banff experience that bit more delightful and make it even harder to leave.
A world-class ski destination, Banff boats one of the longest ski seasons in North America, and 3 distinct ski areas: Mount Norquay, Lake Louise and Sunshine Village. Take a 3-day ski program to learn how to master the ski or play amongst the all-natural snow at Sunshine Village (with a ski shuttle to take you to the town of Banff).
Home to an array of wildlife including grizzly bears and moose, Banff is a wildlife reserve in its own right. Many tours operate, including grizzly bear tours and evening wildlife safaris. View these wonderful creatures in the flesh (and safely!). A highlight is meeting the orphaned grizzly named ‘Boo’ who lives in the grizzly bear refuge.
