Make your way up Tunnel Mountain to the Banff Centre. Their Rec Centre is the best in Banff. They even have a climbing wall, actually a whole complex. Dining rooms are top notch. Check out the art musuem. Grab a book and check out the fantastic views from their library.

I was in town for the mountain film festival, the place was packed, but I liked the availability to all the films that were playing as well as The Club for the bands.

Beautiful arts center in the Rockies! Easy to find, easy to find my way around, great food in the new restaurant (sorry...can't remember the name but LOVED the vegan choices). Visited for the Mountain Film festival. Well organized, easy respite.

Had a great skiing holiday with the whole family here. Nice resort etc. Did the black slopes - horrifyingly! Only downfall was my age as I was under age to drink here. It wasn't that friendly towards children/ families in a couple of bars where they served alcohol - very strict, we were not allowed to just sit with the... More

I stayed at the Centre for a conference in early June 2014 and I had the most amazing time. The place is buzzing with creative energy and there are unbelievable views from all over the campus, including the meeting rooms, the restaurant and the bars. Accommodation is good and the food is excellent. Banff town is a 15-minute stroll down... More

The most interesting in this region of Alberta are nature hikes, but certainly will be left some time to visit this picturesque city. Trade offers good options.
