Guide to Banff


Banff is located in the province of Alberta, within Canada’s Rocky Mountain region. Its most beloved attractions are its mountains, lakes and natural hot springs.

Climate in Banff

Being so far north, Banff experiences mostly subarctic climate, with sunny summers (July to September) and cold dry winters (January to March). Visit in the winter to experience the best of the town’s best outdoors activities.


The town was set up to serve as a focal point for the Banff National Park in the 1880s. Before the first Canadian settlers moved in, the land was inhabited by indigenous peoples such as the Blackfoot nation.

Things to do in Banff

Experience the park

The Banff National Park has plenty of activities to keep you occupied. Not only does it offer gorgeous hiking trails through the wilderness, but it also lets you take gondola rides, go paddling on lakes like Taylor Lake and Helen Lake, and stay overnight at forest cabins. Some of the park’s animals include grizzly and black bears, cougars, bighorn sheep and wolves. If you’re visiting in the middle of winter, keep an eye out for the northern lights!

Visit the pristine Lake Louise

Situated about 40 minutes from the town of Banff is Lake Louise, an unspoiled glacial lake whose turquoise waters are great for boating in the summer and skiing in the winter. You can even ride a dog sled across the ice! At the end of your visit here, put up for a night at Lake Louise Inn or Deer Lodge.

Unwind at a hot spring

After a tiring day outdoors, loosen your muscles in the waters of the Banff Upper Hot Springs, situated on the slopes of Sulphur Mountain. This spring is the only one still open to the public. To learn more about the history of the resort, though, you can visit the Cave and Basin spring, which was considered sacred by the indigenous peoples of the region and is now part of a historic site.

Eating out in Banff

Perhaps in tribute to Banff’s native inhabitants, The Bison serves some of the best bison dishes you’ll find in the region. There’s nothing like enjoying ribeye or striploin with a view of the mountains. For breakfast or an evening snack, head to Whitebark Cafe; their homemade muffins and coffee go really well with the simple but elegant decor. 1888 Chop House is an excellent steakhouse built as a tribute to Banff’s early history as a colonial resort. Try their black Angus tomahawk or Acadian caviar tasting. If you’re looking for fine dining, head to Eden, a Modern French restaurant that happens to be one of Canada’s few Five-Diamond establishments.



The airport nearest to Banff is the Calgary International Airport (YYC), from where you can take a 90-minute shuttle ride to reach the town.
