Banff Alberta is the partial home to some of the most beautiful elements of the Canadian Rockies available, offering a welcoming, year round destination for vacationers and visitors. Banff has been a popular place to stop off and enjoy the serenity of the mountain air since the early 1800s, and became Canada’s very first national park in 1885.

The town of Banff is proud to be a green city, with an award winning wastewater treatment plant. The small community made a big impact by being the very first municipality to utilize a source separated biosolid/organic recycling system. The efforts made to downsize waste, utilize natural resources and recycle has aided Banff in eliminating over 60% of waste from landfills via green diversions.

If the appeal of low pollution and a greener environment aren’t a draw, the Banff Springs Hotel or the Banf Park Lodge surely will be. Both of these beautiful facilities provide guests with a comfortable stay, featuring cozy lodgings, delicious food, and a completely amazing view from all sides. These fine family accommodations also promote a greener environment by providing EV chargers, for patrons with electric vehicles.

The town itself is not very large, but it is literally cradled in the heart of the Banff National Park. This gives the community a lot to offer despite its small space. Most sites and scenery can be traveled to via hike or bike. Banff is also part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site, hosts an array of summer art festivals, and is home to the renowned Fairmont Banff Springs Golf Resort.
The town of Banff offers a unique history, beautiful accommodations and plenty of winter activities. The lodge offers an array of skiing, sledding, snowshoeing, dog sledding, ice walking activities, and even a romantic, horse drawn sleigh. Whatever the interest, Banff has something to catch the eye.
