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. Established after railway workers stumbled onto a thermal hot spring, Banff became Canada’s first national park in 1885 and today is part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site. 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.

Banff Upper Hot Springs | Roth & Ramberg

It’s a brisk, cloudy morning in February in a remote valley on the eastern edge of Banff National Park. Five modified shipping containers sit on the ground, vibrating. Inside are groups of plains bison—three or four to a container, not quite shoulder to shoulder, 16 animals in all. The bison each have a numbered tag attached to one ear, a special collar around their necks, and lengths of rubber hose duct-taped to their horns to protect one another from accidental gougings.

The quiet beauty of winter in Lake Louise is a delight to explore on snowshoes! Swishing through fresh powder, you notice how the snow acts as a canvas, recording the tracks of snowshoe hares, pine martens and even the occasional lynx. The guide reveals hidden secrets too: beneath the snowpack are hibernating grizzly bears. You're asked a “Griz Quiz” question and there's a surprising answer. You've laughed and you've learned.
