Banff is possibly the most beautiful place you'll visit in Canada. This resort sits within the Banff National Park in the heart of the Canadian Rockies and the surrounding 6,500 square kilometres of natural parkland offers nature at its finest, with turquoise lakes, glaciers and wildlife including elk and grizzly bears.

Banff National Park is an area of outstanding natural beauty, where outdoor adventures and pursuits include gentle mountain walks, fly fishing or white water rafting. Climb to dizzying heights if you are eager to see Banff from a different perspective, or sit back and let your horse guide you through the spectacular setting along one of the many beautiful horseback trails. Mountain biking, hot springs, golf and gondola tours are other activities you can enjoy on a holiday to Banff.

The town itself is rich in history and there is an array of museums and historical sights to explore, including the Lower Bankhead abandoned mining town and the Whyte Museum showing the history of the Canadian Rockies.

Our Inspiring Travel Company highlights include: Bow River Valley, the Sulphur Mountain Cable Car and a Lake Minnewanka Cruise. Banff restaurants are also in abundance, with our own favourites including Maple Leaf, Grizzly House and Saltik. A stay at the Fairmont Banff Springs will add extra luxury to your stay in the area.
