Banff National Park holidays - Stunning, adventurous and unforgettable
Nature lovers will be in their element with a trip to Banff – this stunning destination is a haven for black bears, elk and moose, to name a few. One of the most breath-taking locations in Canada, Banff boasts a wealth of sights to explore. One of the most spectacularly gorgeous places in the world still unharmed by industry and modern life, Banff is a true national and global treasure.
Discover endless opportunities for adventure
Banff holidays offer breathtaking and awe-inspiring vistas for you to explore, and exciting opportunities to see diverse Canadian wildlife (including black bears, elk, and big horned sheep) in their own environment, all part of the untouched natural splendour that is Banff Canada. Set inside the borders of the Canada’s first National Park, the town of Banff is surrounded by panoramic views of the majestic Canadian Rocky Mountains with turquoise glacial lakes and rivers nestled into the rocks and evergreen trees.
There is much on offer at any time of year for those seeking a holiday to Banff. During the summer months, there are many opportunities to enjoy hiking, mountain biking and exploring of the mountain scenery when the ice has melted and the emerald waters are at their brightest and clearest. You can also take a boat tour across the lakes, which will take you to remote areas to witness amazing natural phenomenon such as the vertical walls of Devil’s Gap which rise sharply and impressively from the deep waters of Lake Minnewanka. For some spectacular 360-degree mountain views, ride the Lake Louise Gondola to the summit of Sulphur Mountain and enjoy a stunning, relaxing stroll through meadows of alpine flowers. Sulphur Mountain is also home to the Banff Upper Hot Springs which offer the chance to soak out doors in soothing hot, 100% natural spring water while surrounded by the magnificent mountain scenery.
When to go to Banff
In the winter Banff becomes a winter wonderland where you have the chance to participate in any winter sport you can imagine from downhill skiing to cross-country and telemark, ice-skating, sledding, sleigh rides, show shoeing, dog sledding, ice fishing, and ice diving.
Holidays to Banff offer the comforts of home in a beautiful, environmentally conscious town, or a chance to escape into the wild and re-gain perspective while marvelling at the emerald waters of Lake Louise or driving beneath the towering jagged snow-capped peaks along the Icefields Parkway. Banff Canada is a place of wonder and beauty offering a truly unique holiday experience.
