Banff National Park
Breathtaking and awe-inspiring in every possible way
Banff National Park, UNESCO heritage site, situated in the middle of province of Alberta in Canada, just a bit more then an hour drive away from Calgary (one of the major international travel airport hubs in Canada), is famous for its surreally colored lakes, majestic mountains and endless outdoor adventures. Canada’s first national park and the world’s third, it has a rich heritage as one of the world’s most awe-inspiring mountain destinations.
What makes Banff National Park so special is its easy access and close proximity to the vast unspoiled wilderness of the Canadian Rockies. The park spans 6,641 square kilometres (2,564 square miles) of mountainous terrain, packed with spectacularly scenic valleys, peaks, glaciers, forests, meadows and rivers.
Throughout centuries of habitation by aboriginal peoples, the establishment of a tourist town in the 19th century, and today’s modern, world class destination: the landscape of Banff National Park has long inspired people with its natural beauty and grandeur. The bustling town of Banff and hamlet of Lake Louise are uniquely located in the National Park. You feel truly immersed in the mountains and close to nature when you visit Banff & Lake Louise.
