Banff was established in 1885 as Canada’s first National Park and is also a coveted UNESCO World Heritage Site. Set in the heart of the spectacular Rocky Mountains, Banff National Park has vast, unspoiled wilderness with breathtaking scenery of towering peaks and crystal clear alpine lakes.

The Town of Banff is the gateway to it all with a wide range of seasonal and year-round activities, including walking and biking trails, horseback riding, natural hot springs, wildlife viewing, national historic sites, museums, galleries, cafés, fine dining, canoeing, kayaking, golf, and interesting boutique shopping. Visitors to Banff also have the opportunity to experience one of Canada’s greatest natural wonders – the Northern Lights (aurora borealis).
