Banff National Park Tours

Banff National Park
Within the boundaries of Banff National Park lie some of the world’s most spectacular landscapes. The park, which showcases Canada’s Rocky Mountains in all their glory, offers world-class skiing, hiking, biking, and outdoor attractions. It’s a year-round haven for day-trippers from nearby Calgary and for international visitors galore.

The Basics
There is so much to see and experience in Banff: lakes, rivers, mountains, caves, wildlife, hot springs, museums, the gondola in Banff Town, and more. To make the most of your time, a guided tour will help you hit the highlights and get a more in-depth look at what interests you most. Many multi-day tours from Vancouver take in other Canadian Rockies spots, such as Lake Louise, Jasper, and the Columbia Icefield; some tours comprise evening wildlife safaris or horseback-riding adventures; and day trips from Calgary offer a taster of Banff’s beauty.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • Banff National Park is a must for nature lovers, outdoors enthusiasts, wildlife lovers, and all first-time visitors to Alberta.
  • There is a fee to enter the park.
  • Bring your camera—the scenery is spectacular for photography.
  • Much of Banff Town and most Parks Canada sites are accessible to those with limited mobility.

How to Get There
Banff National Park is located on the Trans-Canada Highway, 78 miles (125 kilometers) from the nearest airport in Calgary, Alberta. Tourist shuttles and buses travel between Banff and Calgary. Another popular route is the scenic Icefields Parkway, which runs 179 miles (288 kilometers) between Banff and Jasper national parks.

When to Get There
The summer months (June to September) are peak season in Canada’s mountain parks, and things pick up again in winter (November to March) for ski season. To avoid the crowds, spring and fall are best; however, ice and snow may limit accessibility to hiking trails and lakes, and some attractions are open seasonally.
 
Banff Hotels and Lodging

From full-scale luxury to basic and budget-friendly, the hotels and lodgings in Banff National Park have something for every traveler. Many tours arrange stays for you at comfortable hotels, or you could join an outfitter for camping and adventure under the stars.
