Banff

The gateway to Canada's oldest national park, Banff sits in the middle of one of the world's most photogenic natural landscapes, recognized as a World Heritage Site.
Take a break from the city and head to The Lake Louise Ski Resort and Sunshine Village. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Thermal Spas and Spas & Wellness. Venture out of the city with trips to Kootenay National Park (in Radium Hot Springs) and Yoho National Park (Natural Bridge & Emerald Lake). There's still lots to do: get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour, explore the striking landscape of Banff National Park, Head underground at Canmore Cave Tours, and contemplate the waterfront views at Vermilion Lakes.
