Plan Your Trip to Banff: Best of Banff Tourism

By Emily B

Banff, Canada

Soaring mountains, jewel-colored lakes and pristine wilderness await you in Canada’s first National Park. The irresistible beauty of the landscape invites travelers to immerse themselves in the outdoors all year round — whether hiking through untouched forests and paddling the turquoise lakes in summertime, or skiing the slopes and soaking in the steamy hot springs during the winter. Travelers also enjoy the warm hospitality of Banff or Lake Louise, the region’s charming mountain townships.
