Banff Canadian Rockies

There’s a reason everybody’s heard of Banff. The mountain town's got a lot to love: historic charm, super beautiful natural surroundings, and all the amenities you could ask for. Hit the shops and restaurants on Banff Avenue and try gravy-smothered poutine while wearing your new favourite moose T-shirt. Then, after a day of ice-walking, skiing or sightseeing in the Rockies, visit a brewpub or distillery for a drink and a bison burger. You've earned it. ● Must-See: That castle across the river? That’s the historic Fairmont Banff Springs. Explore the hotel's history and hauntings before treating yourself at the amazing thermal spa. ● Rise Up: Ride the Banff Gondola for an unbeatable mountaintop view.

Ever wondered where Banff Trail Riders' 300 horses spend winter? It’s a pretty sweet gig – work six months of the year, then run free, eat, and hang with your buds for the other six months.

The impeccable score includes sing along songs such as "Life Is Happiness Indeed," "It Must Be So," "You Were Dead, You Know" and "Make Our Garden Grow.” This year they celebrate Leonard Bernstein by presenting his catchy tunes and the show's clever lyrics with beautiful young voices, incredible characters and a witty response to Voltaire's cynical (or, rather, realistic) philosophy.
