Travel Tips & Advice for Banff

Banff Activities

Sitting in the heart of Banff National Park – one of the oldest national parks in the world – there are plenty of hiking trails in the forests around Banff; Tunnel Mountain Trail is popular with locals. For spectacular views ride the Banff Gondola to the summit of Sulphur Mountain or take the sightseeing chairlift up Mount Norquay. Water-lovers can canoe down Bow River or take a boat cruise on Lake Minnewanak, a 20-minute drive away.

Banff Food & Drink

As a resort town popular with tourists, backpacker and – in winter – skiers, Banff has a wide range of international restaurants including Italian, Greek and Mexican. For a taste of local cuisine try wild game burgers, steaks or sausages with buffalo, venison and wild boar all on the menu. During the summer months there’s a weekly Farmer’s Market where you can purchase local produce and sip on Bow River Pilsner from the Banff Ave. Brewing Co.

Banff Attractions

Snow-capped mountains, lakes filled with emerald waters and dazzling glaciers – Banff’s dramatic and untamed wilderness is its biggest drawcard. Feeling sore after a day’s hiking? Head to Banff Upper Hot Springs for a relaxing soak in the mineral waters while looking up a star-strewn sky. There’s also the rushing Bow Falls waterfalls as well as a handful of museums detailing the history of the area – we recommend The Banff Park Museum with its 5,000 specimens and photographs.
