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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Banff National Park: Canmore (Nature & Wildlife Tours, Fireweed Glass Studio, & more). On the 15th (Fri), spend an exhilarating day on the slopes at The Lake Louise Ski Resort. On the 16th (Sat), spend an exhilarating day on the slopes at Sunshine Village. And it doesn't end there: contemplate the waterfront views at Moraine Lake, steep yourself in history at Cave and Basin National Historic Site, take a memorable drive along Bow Valley Parkway, and take in the dramatic scenery at Bow Falls.
