Welcome to Banff!

Set in the heart of Banff National Park and snugly embraced by Alberta's Rocky Mountains, the little town of Banff boasts a big, worldwide reputation. Its charming streets are abuzz year round due to an annual influx of millions of visitors, and this famous mountain resort town caters accordingly with world-class shopping, dining and an array of accommodation, from cabins and campgrounds to bed and breakfasts and Banff hotels and motels.

At first sight it's apparent why the world is in love with Banff. From the ever-watchful Cascade Mountain to the picturesque Bow River, the community is blessed with a spectacular natural setting, woven with parks, woods and trails. Winter turns the area into a snow sport enthusiast's dream; the Sunshine Village Ski Resort and Norquay attract a global deluge of skiers and snowboarders, while cross-country skiers, snowshoers and ice climbers explore numerous local trails. Banff is an ideal base for hiking and wildlife viewing excursions into surrounding park areas during summer and provides a popular weekend retreat with excellent restaurants, golf courses, day spas and the Banff Upper Hot Springs.

Located only 144 km (90 mi) from Calgary and close to Kananaskis Country, Canmore and Lake Louise, Banff is a convenient and much-loved mountain paradise.
