The subarctic town of Banff in Alberta, Canada, is perfect for winter sport enthusiasts. Skiing, ice skating, sledding and snowboarding are just some of the activities you can take part in while enjoying the fresh white snow and clean mountain air. To warm up, sink into Banff Upper Hot Springs and enjoy magnificent views of the Canadian Rockies as you relax. During the summer months when the snow has melted, you can go fishing, hiking, canoeing or swimming. For a day trip, take the Banff Gondola to the top of Sulphur Mountain, book a guided horse-riding tour or try white water rafting. Wilderness hostels give you the chance to experience life away from the bustle of the city and be close to natural scenery and attractions.
