Open Day in the Mountains

Plan to stay and enjoy all that Banff has to offer. Take in the view with a ride in the gondola, book a tee time, bring your swim suit and enjoy the natural hot springs. Banff also has unique shopping, museums, restaurants and walking, hiking and biking trails.

Occasionally, wildlife have been spotted in and around the town of Banff. Always keep a safe distance away, and never feed the wildlife.
