Our Banff holidays destinataion will take you to an all-season resort: a tiny, picturesque town nestled high in the Rocky Mountains of Alberta. Encircled by majestic peaks, it is famous for its natural min- eral hot springs, as well as its world-class skiing, well-appointed hospitality and all manner of outdoor winter adventures. Located within over six thousand acres of wilderness that is the UNESCO world heritage site of Banff National Park, it is home to grizzly bears, elk, bald eagles and hundreds of species of wildlife. Its crys- tal clear mountain lakes and streams are excellent for fishing and paddles sports like canoeing and kayaking.
Everywhere you look, from the chalet-style hotels and buildings that line the main street to the mountains that dominate every vista, the entire region is a natural wonder in and of itself. First settled in the 1880’s around the area’s natural mineral hot springs, it was conceptualized as a resort town from its very inception. Lying along the Canadian Pacific Railway line, it is home to art- ists, families, outdoor enthusiasts and a thriving culture of hospitality. Banff can be as relaxing or as action packed as you like, and there are endless pastimes and activities to indulge just about any travellers whim.
