Day Trip to Banff & Lake Louise
Undoubtedly one of Canada’s most picture-perfect settings, Banff National Park and the town of Banff makes for a perfect day trip from Calgary. Driveable in under 90 minutes, the route itself is nothing short of spectacular, taking in incredible mountain vistas shortly after leaving the city, and which never let up along the way.
After passing Canmore and enterting the park gates, you’ll find yourself in the town of Banff, the only community located in magnificent Banff National Park. It’s a great place to explore either before or after touring the park, and features plenty of shopping and dining opportunities.
