Banff National Park National Parks

The elements that make the Canadian Rockies a year round dream destination converge in perfect harmony in Banff National Park.

Explore more than 1,600 km (1,000 mi) of maintained trails on foot, by bicycle or on horseback. Come back in winter and ski some of the finest powder anywhere. The alpine towns of Banff and Lake Louise have all the amenities and everything you need to stay and explore this magical place.
