Banff, Alberta, Canada
For over 125 years, Banff National Park has provided visitors with a healthy combination of
unspoiled wilderness, modern amenities and opportunities for active exploration.
Banff National Park is located in Alberta, Canada, just a 90-minute drive West of Calgary
International Airport. The park is home to the Town of Banff, a municipality of about 8300
people, and the hamlet of Lake Louise, which services the hotels and campgrounds near its famous
namesake lake. At 4,537 feet, the Town of Banff is the highest town in Canada. The Lake Louise
village is the highest community at 5,033 feet. All in all, Banff National Park encompasses 6640 square kilometres of forested
valleys, towering peaks, glacier-fed lakes, surging rivers, brilliant wildflowers and wildlife of
all kinds, including the iconic grizzly bear.
The Town of Banff was intended to be a tourist town from its very inception. The park's first
superintendent, George Stewart, even oriented the town's first street in such as way that it
would offer the best possible views of Cascade Mountain.
Lake Louise has become symbolic of
the quintessentially Canadian mountain scene. This alpine lake, known for its sparkling blue
waters, is situated at the base of impressive glacier-clad peaks that have long been at the heart
of Canadian mountaineering. Originally called Emerald Lake, it was later renamed Lake Louise
after the daughter of Queen Victoria. At about 2.5 kilometres long and 90 metres deep, the lake offers a
surreal paddling experience in the warm summer months and one of the most scenic skating rinks
in the world in winter.
