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.

Kacy & Clayton

Banff, Alberta

The music Kacy & Clayton make is inextricable from where they grew up. They sing about the kind of people you’d find in Wood Mountain, Saskatchewan (population very few). The hills, barns and remoteness of the area are in these songs, with a bittersweet acknowledgement that this music has taken them far from home.
