Among the world's oldest national parks, Banff National Park serves as a World Heritage-listed mecca for cyclists, hikers, skiers, bird-watchers, mountain climbers, and anyone else with a passion for exploring vast untouched wildernesses.
Visiting Banff Springs Golf Course and Plain of Six Glaciers will get you outdoors. Change things up with these side-trips from Banff National Park: Athabasca Glacier (in Jasper National Park), Golden (Rocky Mountain Buffalo Ranch & River Rafting & Tubing) and Yoho National Park (Takakkaw Falls, Emerald Lake, & more). Spend the 2nd (Mon) exploring nature at Spiral Tunnels. On the 27th (Tue), dedicate a day to the elevated beauty of Temple Mountain. There's still lots to do: cruise along Columbia Ice Field, explore the stunning scenery at Johnston Canyon, take in the dramatic natural features at Natural Bridge, and contemplate the waterfront views at Peyto Lake.

For traveler tips, where to stay, ratings, and more tourist information, read our Banff National Park online tour itinerary planner .

In August, plan for daily highs up to 24°C, and evening lows to 6°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 2nd (Mon) so you can travel back home.
