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 1,000 mi (1,600 km) 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.
