  • The Park is huge and just wonderful, from the road. There are several lakes with turquoise water in the region and has the town of Banff which is an enchanting and charming Pearl. All around deserves a picture. On the road were made special passages, like an overpass for animals not being hit. It is common to see deer in the city. I've seen! The bears already exist but are not so easy to see. Along the Bow River ride, with water from glaciers is also beautiful. This is a truly unforgettable trip.
