BANFF, ALBERTA - Banff National Park - Canada's first national park - 1 1/2 hrs drive west of Calgary, Alberta, Canada. From Banff's humble beginnings as a 26 square kilometre hot springs reserve, Banff National Park now consists of 6,641 square kilometres of unparalleled mountain scenery nestled in the heart of the magnificent Canadian Rockies.
Each year, millions of visitors come to Banff to marvel at the emerald waters of Lake Louise, walk amongst the flower-filled heavens at Sunshine Meadows, and drive beneath the towering jagged peaks lining the Icefields Parkway.
Snow-capped peaks, glistening glaciers and sweeping vistas are just one part of the allure of Banff National Park. We also offer all the best summer and winter activities in the Canadian Rockies. We have Canada's best whitewater rafting, golfing, hiking, bird-watching, mountain climbing, canoeing, skiing, fishing, and all types of guided tours. Would you like to relax for a few days?
