Stunning and rugged mountains, mighty rivers, thundering waterfalls, majestic wildlife, and sparkling lakes all of this and more await you on this Canadian Getaway. Discover the soaring scenery of the Canadian Rockies in Banff which has something for everyone skiing, sightseeing, hiking, shopping, eating, and wildlife spotting.
Nestled among the soaring peaks and pines is Banff National Park in Canada. With Calgary to the east and the shimmering waters of UNESCO listed Lake Louise to the west, Banff is a beautiful slice of Alberta. You can take in sweeping views from the Banff Gondola at Sulphur Mountain and be on the lookout for hoodoos (tall pillars of rock). Outdoor adventure is the name of the game, enjoy active pursuits ranging from horseback riding to kayaking. If you’re visiting Banff in search of adrenaline pumping thrills, hit Kicking Horse River on a white-water rafting trip. The river swells in the summer months, providing challenging currents and exhilarating class IV and up rapids with some tours ending in a barbecue lunch.
Animal lovers can trek by horseback along rugged trails through the wilderness or spot native bears, elk, and moose on a dusk wildlife safari. You can have it all from thrills to spills to just gazing in wonder on this fabulous trip.
