405 Spray Ave, Banff, AB T1L 1J4, Canada
Visiting the legendary Fairmont Banff Springs Resort is like walking through a history lesson. Kids will love all the pictures of the hotel’s old days, as well as the castle-like feeling of the stone halls and archways, built over 125 years...

132 Banff Ave, Banff, AB T1L 1C1, Canada
Warner Stables might be on the fringes of the booming resort town of Banff, Alberta; however, even a one-hour trail ride leads far enough from the hustle and bustle main street to feel like the Wild West. Horseback journeys have a long history in...
Save Place
91 Bow Valley Trail, Canmore, AB T1W 1N8, Canada
Instead of staring up at the spectacular Canadian Rockies, imagine soaring just inches above their majestic peaks. Alpine Helicopters sightseeing tours begin from the Canmore Municipal Heli-port just minutes from downtown, and fly over the iconic...

Save Place
AB-93, Alberta, Canada
Not sure where to go from Glacier National Park, we decided to follow the advice of two Canadian residents whom we just met at a hostel in Montana. They insisted we follow Icefields Parkway from Banff to Jasper National Park in Alberta, Canada....
Save Place
Crandell Lake Trail, Waterton, AB T0K 2M0, Canada
Bear's Hump is one of Waterton National Park's best hikes. It's extremely short, measuring only 2.8 km, but it involves plenty of climbing as the trail winds uphill from the Visitor Information Office towards the rocky bluffs that hang high above...
Save Place
Alberta 5, Waterton Park, AB T0K 2M0, Canada
Banff and Jasper are top of mind when it comes to Alberta's Great Outdoors. Travelers flock to Moraine Lake by the busload for postcard-perfect snaps and zip through the province's northern parks on the trail of grizzlies, elk, and moose. Waterton...
Save Place
Mount Norquay, Improvement District No. 9, AB T0L, Canada
Built for kids but beloved by nearly everyone, tubing at Mount Norquay is an entertaining alternative to skiing or snowboarding in the Canadian Rockies. Not satisfied with simply being the fastest tubing park around, Mount Norquay staff are also...
