A resort town in the heart of the Rocky Mountains and part of Canada’s oldest national park, Banff is an outdoor enthusiast’s haven. One of the various ways that you can travel through the region is onboard the Rocky Mountaineer Train. This luxury train takes you right through Banff and the surrounding mountains where you will enjoy the breathtaking views from the comfort of your glass dome seat. While in Banff, explore and enjoy the sights by taking a ride on the gondola up Sulphur Mountain to take in the stunning views of the region including Bow Valley and Lake Louise. Take time out to explore Banff National Park, with its craggy peaks, ice-blue lakes and coniferous forests offering a picture perfect setting to hike, bike, raft, paddle, ski, snowboard or ice skate – it all depends on the time of year you visit. To unwind and enjoy some relaxation, a visit to the famous Banff Hot Springs, open year round, is a must. Enjoy some time wading in the soothing mineral rich natural hot springs amidst the breathtaking Rocky Mountains.
