Banff has to be one of the most picturesque towns in all of Canada, situated in the stunning Canadian Rockies. It is as charming as it is beautiful, and not surprisingly, it is a very popular holiday destination! Banff is one of Canada's most visited towns all year round, offering incredible snow in the winter for a perfect ski and snowboard holiday, with easy access to the Big 3 ski resorts - Mount Norquay, Sunshine Village and Lake Louise - which you can ski all on the one lift ticket.
With such great access to the Big 3, Banff really is a dream destination for both skiers and snowboarders. Mount Norquay is a friendly resort that is revered by tourists and locals alike, with runs for all levels from beginners to advanced skiers. Sunshine Village is a stunning resort high in the Rocky Mountains with panoramic views of the majestic mountains, yet is only 15 minutes from Banff. Lake Louise is Canada's biggest ski resort with runs to suit any skier; perfect for families or groups to enjoy together.
Banff is also a haven for anyone looking for a true Canadian adventure in the summer, with lots of outdoor activities on offer - you can hike, canoe and horseride your way through picturesque Banff National Park. Summertime is full of adventure seekers ready to discover the beautiful Canadian Rockies. It is especially popular with those looking for a walking holiday in the Rockies, with endless hiking trails to spectacular mountain vistas, waterfalls and hopefully plenty of opportunities to see lots of Canadian wildlife too! Some of Banff's best hiking trails can be accessed from the top of the scenic Banff Gondola, where you can hop off and explore.
Whatever you are looking for, a Banff holiday has it in bucket loads – and all with a friendly smile and a warm heart!
