    Destination Information:

    Located in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, Banff National Park is Canada’s oldest national park, and was one of the original stops on the Canadian Pacific Railway.  Originally centered around the Banff Hot Springs, the park later grew to include nearby Lake Louise and the Columbia Icefield.  One of the most popular parks in North America, Banff National Park is visited by over three million visitors annually.
    Gondolas are the best way to obtain a sense of the majesty and enormity of the mountains, and are available in Banff, Lake Louise and Sunshine Village.  Elk, caribou, grizzly bears and gray wolves are native to the Park.  Historic sites and museums include the Banff Centre, Banff Park Museum, Whyte Museum, Canadian Ski Museum West, Buffalo Nations Luxton Museum, and the Cave & Basin National Historic Site.  The town of Banff offers a variety of restaurants, shops and art galleries.
