Banff National Park

18 Entries

Banff National Park, Alberta, is Canada’s first national park and is located in the Canadian Rockies. Expect to see plenty of wildlife in the park including bears, moose, bighorn sheep and if you’re lucky, wolves and cougars. Make sure you visit the stunning Lake Louise - this sparkling blue lake is great for paddling in the summer and skiing in the winter, but great for photo opportunities during any season. Sunshine Meadows is a great place for hikes, either guided or self-led, where you can see wildflowers and wildlife, plus spectacular scenery. The Banff Mountain Film Festival is held every November and features some of the world’s best film-makers and adventurers from around the world gathering to celebrate the outdoor life and mountain culture.
