Banff National Park

Canada's Magnificent Park

One of Canada’s great national treasures, with unparalleled majestic mountain scenery, turquoise glacial lakes, abundance of wildlife, vegetation and activities.

Banff National Park, is Canada’s first and oldest national park, located in the Rocky Mountains, west of Calgary in Alberta province. Banff National Park consists of 6,641 square kilometers of unparalleled mountain scenery nestled in the heart of the magnificent Canadian Rockies.

Every year, over million of visitors makes the pilgrimage to Banff Park to marvel at the emerald waters of Lake Louise and glacier-fed Moraine Lake; walk among the flower-filled heavens at Sunshine Meadows and drive beneath the towering jagged peaks lining the Ice-fields Parkway.

Snow-capped peaks, glistening glaciers and sweeping vistas are just one part of the allure of Banff National Park. The park encompasses Banff, the highest town in Canada and several national historic sites; castle-guard caves, plus a 27-hole championship golf course. There are also numerous summer and winter activities in the Canadian Rockies.

In the fall of 1883, three Canadian Pacific Railway construction workers discovered a natural hot springs and from there the park was born. Since 1985, Banff became part of the Canadian Rocky Mountain Parks UNESCO World Heritage Site.
