Banff Travel Guide: 508 reviews and 1,128 photos


Banff IS beautiful - even when it RAINED our entire trip! :S

This was expected. However, we were UNDAUNTED!! What a great time. There is MUCH to see and to do, at any time of the year.
In the summer, one may enjoy hiking, fishing, biking, climbing, and more.
In the winter, there's skiing and snowboarding, many shops to peruse, the museum, even a movie theatre!
At all times, one may relax in the Banff Hot Springs! This is great - especially after climbing to the top of Sulphur Mountain!

TIP: You may climb Sulphur Mountain - which of course costs nothing - THEN - take the Gondola down...FOR FREE! (Saves $21.50 per adult)

The Banff Springs Hotel is also great to check out at any time during the year.

Banff Gondola

As I'd mentioned, we climbed Sulphur Mountain and took the Gondola down. The view is beautiful and the ride comfortable. I definitely recommend this!

Don't forget to sign the guest book!

The Information Center - South of Wolf Street on Banff Avenue - will provide you with any information you need. There are continuous information sessions running to keep you informed. You may also purchase gifts here. Don't forget to sign the guest book! Thousands of people sign this every year!
