Banff National Park was established in 1885, and is now recognized as a World Heritage Site by the United Nations. Nestled within this park, the town of Banff is known internationally as one of Canada’s top tourist destinations. Visitors can experience breathtaking panoramas of the Canadian Rockies, the comfort and simplicity of small-town life, and the serenity that only nature can provide. Each year, millions of visitors travel to Banff to marvel at the emerald waters of Lake Louise, walk amongst the flower-filled heavens at Sunshine Meadows, and drive beneath the towering jagged peaks lining the Icefields Parkway. You can enjoy all the comforts of home in the town of Banff, or step out into the wilderness to see the habitats of some of North America's wildest creatures. Banff also has countless restaurants, galleries, and entertainment options available. If shopping is more your style, there are many beautiful stores to choose from. However you choose to spend your stay, you will leaved relaxed and refreshed, with plenty of fond memories.
