Banff

The gateway to Canada's oldest national park, Banff sits in the middle of one of the world's most photogenic natural landscapes, recognized as a World Heritage Site. Filled with tourists and seasonal workers from around the world, this hub of tourism serves as a convenient base for travelers looking for that true backcountry experience. You'll find few tourist attractions in Banff itself, the main draw being the surrounding glaciers, valleys, mountains, lakes, dense forests, and developed ski areas. Most visitors come here seeking adventure and excitement in the great outdoors, but if you're looking for a more relaxing Banff holiday experience, explore the region's hot springs and burgeoning food scene.
