BANFF, ALBERTA—Canada—From the blue-green waters of Lake Louise, to the postcard-worthy views of the Icefields Parkway, Banff National Park is one of the most scenic places in the Canadian Rockies. Want a bird’s eye view? A Banff Gondola Ride offers panoramic vistas of six mountain ranges from the summit of Sulfur Mountain. Those who prefer staying on the ground can opt instead for a hike through Banff National Park, golf the Canadian Rockies, or can get on the water and raft the stunning, glacier-fed Kicking Horse River. No matter what you do here, be sure to bring a camera.
