Banff National Park, in the heart of the Canadian Rocky Mountains, is home to soaring peaks, pine forests and mountain lakes. In summer, the meadows are full of alpine wildflowers, in winter those same meadows make for world-class skiing and snowboarding without the busy-ness of Europe’s resorts. Banff National Park is also home to a huge amount of fascinating wildlife, not least the grizzly bear. If you love the great outdoors, then you’ll love Banff National Park.
There is a fantastic selection of hotels in Banff National Park. Whether you’re travelling on a tight budget, planning a luxury get-away or out for some extreme summer or winter sport, you’ll find the perfect accommodation for you in Banff, Canmore or Lake Louise. There are also out-of-the-way lodges and retreats overlooking the valley. For a busy town with heaps of charm, book a place to stay in one of the lodges, inns or hotels in Banff town. With its ski-resort nightlife as well as good places to eat and drink, Banff will give you a holiday to remember. Canmore, while smaller than Banff, is just as bustling with things to do. If you prefer something more intimate, look at the accommodation in Lake Louise village. The picturesque mountain village on the shores of Lake Louise is famous both for its intermediate-to-difficult ski resort as well as the iconic Chateau Lake Louise, the oldest hotel in Banff National Park. In summer, the lake is perfect for relaxing kayak tours, and in the winter, when it freezes over, locals and guests skate side-by-side before heading to the village’s cosy restaurants and bars.
Skiing and snowboarding draw hundreds of thousands of guests to Banff National Park every year, with Canada’s Big 3 resorts catering to all abilities and ages. On your rest days, enjoy some of the year-round attractions, the Cave and Basin National Historic Site, Banff Gondola and Upper Hot Springs, where soaking in the thermal waters while snow falls all around you might just be one of the highlights of your holiday. Snowmobiling or dog sled tours are also extremely popular when you want some time off of the slopes
Summer in Banff National Park melts the snows away to open up 2,500 miles of hiking and biking terrain. You can spend day after day exploring glaciers, hunting out hidden waterfalls and deciding whether to dip into crystal-clear mountain lakes – or stay warm and dry on a picnic blanket just drinking in the scenery. If you’d like to take off even further afield, hire a car and drive away along the Trans-Canada Highway or up the Icefields Parkways for a cruise you will never forget.
Banff National Park is a fantastic place to spend your holiday at any time of year and you’re sure to find the perfect hotel for you here.
