Banff has been a hot topic in a lot of vacationing magazines and shows in the last couple of years! With its gorgeous views, low costs, and fun activities, it’s no wonder why! Offering experiences that don’t compare to anything, or anywhere, else- here are some of the fantastic past times that’ll make you want to stay in Banff forever.
Hike the Most Beautiful Trails On Earth
There’s nothing quite like getting out in the fresh open air to put your mind at ease. With over two hundred unique trails, Banff offers a path for anyone who wants to lace up and go. Views of everything, ranging from glaciers to mountains, are sure to leave you in awe and appreciation.
Whether you prefer to hike alone or in a group for safety, this beautiful national park has something for everyone. You’ll never get lost, but if you want to challenge yourself, over a hundred of their trials are considered ‘difficult’ and could be a fun way to push yourself to your limits.
Hiking is a bonding activity, and it releases endorphins, which are known to improve mood and increase your energy.
Enjoy The Rapids
Despite being so landlocked, Banff has endless options when it comes to splashing around in the water. You can push on at your own pace and find what suits you best.
If you’d instead enjoy some leisurely swimming- then check out Lake Louise when summer’s at its peak. Although this glacier-fed lake never completely warms up, it does allow a refreshing place to dip in and cool off if the heat gets to you. Once a year, locals use this beautiful lake for a lovely ice festival.
If still water isn’t what thrills you, white water rafting is huge in Banff. You’ll be looking for Banff houses for sale the second you get the pure fun of rafting on the wild waters. Offering groups for newbies and pros, you’ll feel completely connected with nature and the untamed wilderness of Banff.
Driving Through the Views
If getting out there, and wearing yourself out, isn’t your idea of a good vacation, then consider driving through the parks’ endless views. Every mile of the park offers a new beautiful landmark to consider. If you’d like, you can go on a bus or bike tour, or enjoy the comfort of your vehicle as you take in gorgeous mountain ranges and untouched wildlife. See bears, goats, and wolves from the safety of a steel vehicle, and get to find your place in this beautiful world.
Banff offers clean blue skies at day, and endless stars at night, so if you’d rather drive through the parks and enjoy the views, you’re not just settling for anything. It’s an experience all on its own.
If you’re still unsure, Banff has a rotating list of activities that change out every season. Regardless of what kind of weather you want, or experiences you’re craving, Banff has something for any excited vacationer all year round.
