I stayed in Banff for only four days for a wedding. I am DEFINITELY coming back as soon as I am able. The national park is absolutely huge, with lots of trails of varying degrees of difficulty. It’s impossible not to miss the wildlife – elk, big-horn sheep, mule deer, moose, grizzly bears, just to name a few. Lake Louise is not to be missed, but be sure to hike further towards the glacier plains.
I stayed at The Juniper Hotel, which I highly recommend. The rooms are small, but who cares because you’ll want to be outside anyway!over 5 years ago
Hey there! I’ll be visiting Banff for a wedding in late May. Decided to turn the visit into a 4-day outdoor adventure weekend. I’m hoping some of you folks can help me with some recommendations. My sister and I want to go kayaking, our fiancees want to do some hiking. Can anyone recommend a place where we can rent kayaks? Any adventure outfitters come to mind? Moderatelly difficult trails? Also, what is the weather generally like around that time? Thanks!over 5 years ago
In the ’70’s, it was as if God needed a place to rest and he created Banff.
I arrived in the night during winter and couldn’t figure out why there were stars visible only directly overhead. When the sun rose the next morning, I was dumb struck by the peaks that surround Banff.
And the Banff Hotel is a part of Europe transported here magically.
I don’t know if Banff has been Park City-ized in the 30 years since I visited but it was heaven on earth back then!over 5 years ago
