backpacking trails Around Banff
A holiday in Banff should be on everybody’s bucket list. This small mountain town has it all, and exploring Banff on foot, bike, ski or car is a full sensory experience. There is more than just the town of Banff itself, with incredible outdoors all around you.
Some of our favourite things to do in Banff are the hike to Healy Pass, a family-friendly hike to Sunshine Meadows, skiing at Sunshine Village in winter and road bike trips on the 1A. Don’t forget the wonderful Johnston Canyon – a delight in summer, in winter this magical walk needs microspikes, however the views of the frozen waterfalls will be a highlight of your travels.
Planning a trip to Banff is easy, as everything you need is in the town of Banff. From world-class hotels to budget-friendly hostels and good campgrounds, accommodation suits all budgets. Eating in Banff is another highlight, with 5-star restaurants, fun pubs and quick burger-shacks.
There’s also a lot to do in Banff. You can take a ride on the Banff Gondola, go on a boat ride on Lake Minnewanka or explore the trails on horseback. Heck, just enjoying shopping in Banff or a picnic in a park is a great day out! Start planning your holiday in Banff with our help below.Read More
