Holidays to Banff
Holidays in Banff are the perfect time to explore the scenic Canadian Rocky Mountains. Banff is Canada's oldest national park and provides some of the most scenic views in the country. In fact, the beautiful scene at Lake Louise was at one time the image on the back of the Canadian twenty dollar bill.
When on holiday in Banff in the winter, nothing beats skiing at one of the three ski resorts found in the park: Mount Norquay ski resort, Lake Louise Mountain Resort, and Sunshine Village. Enjoy the fresh mountain air while you make your way down the seemingly endless mountain, taking in the beautiful scenery that surrounds Banff.
During the summer months you can book treks into the mountain. There are plenty of chalets or campsites for you to stay in along your path. Make sure to make it to Bow Lake where you can see how the land was carved by the Crowfoot Glacier while enjoying the tranquility of the blue glacier fed lake.
During one of your hikes in the mountains make sure to find the famous Norquay lookout, which many consider to be one of the best viewing areas of the area. From this location you can clearly see the Spray River Valley, which winds down between Sulphur Mountain and Mount Rundle.
Relax in the naturally occurring hot springs on holiday in Banff
After spending a few days in the mountains you can take refuge at the upper hot springs, which are naturally occurring springs in the Banff area. You are allowed to relax in these natural pools that are kept at an average of 38C. Spend the day enjoying the hot water and let the natural minerals warm you before you head back out into the snow peaked mountains.
To take in some of the most spectacular views while on vacation in Banff make sure to take the gondola ride to the top of Sulphur Mountain. This 10 minute trip will leave you breathless as you overlook nearby Lake Minnewanka and the town of Banff below.
