Experience Banff & Lake Louise
Nestled in the heart of the Canadian Rockies, Banff is a bustling, energetic resort town and the perfect base for your Rocky Mountain adventure. With accommodation options ranging from rustic cabins to luxury hotels, this lively town abounds with shops, art galleries and museums; and over 200 restaurants.
Banff is surrounded by some of the world’s most spectacular scenery. Here you’ll find world class alpine activities, outdoor adventure and mile upon mile of unspoiled wilderness. Visit the historic Cave and Basin, and take some time to relax in the soothing waters of the hot springs. Then check out the spectacular views from the summit of Sulphur Mountain at the Banff Gondola and explore an interpretive lake cruise at Lake Minnewanka.
One of the most photographed scenes in the Canadian Rockies, Lake Louise is an outdoor enthusiast’s paradise. Famous for its stunning turquoise lake, and beautiful chateau, the town is surrounded by some of the best hikes in Banff National Park and has a world class ski hill on the doorstep. The town itself is a charming resort with a small shopping centre containing everything you’ll need, and a handful of top notch restaurants.
Lake Louise is the perfect base for skiing, hiking and water sports; and, as the southernmost point of the Icefields Parkway, it is the starting point for many Rocky Mountain activities.
Some of the exciting tours departing from Lake Louise include the Mountain Lakes and Waterfalls Tour in the summer, and Snow Tubing and Snowshoeing in the winter. The Columbia Icefield tour, will take you up the Icefields Parkway to the Athabasca Glacier Adventure, and the Glacier Skywalk.
