Banff, AB, Canada
Funny how climbing to what feels like the top of the world can make you feel so small. The Canadian Rockies in Banff is a sublime place to find peace of mind. With hiking trails for all levels—from foothills to high slopes, peaks, and valleys—you’...

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...

211 Bear St # 213, Banff, AB T1L 1E4, Canada
It’s rare that a restaurant can accommodate hikers, businessmen, and couples on a date all at the same time, but downtown Banff’s Bison manages to do just that. Its comfortable dining room with a large open kitchen looks out over a...
Save Place
Improvement District No. 9, AB T0L, Canada

There’s something romantic about a horse-drawn sleigh ride, but it’s even more special when it traces the shores of historic Lake Louise. Imagine snuggling beneath a fleece blanket on an old-fashioned sleigh as two mighty horses pull...

200 Sentinel Rd, Lake Louise, AB T0L 1E0, Canada
I have always had a fascination with train stations, especially historic ones. The train might be my favorite mode of transportation because it often takes you to places remote—but slowly, affording you the time to absorb what you're seeing. This...

311 Cave Ave, Banff, AB T0L 0C0, Canada
You can smell the minerals in the water as you unload the family at the Cave and Basin National Historic Site, the place where two railway surveyors spotted a cave and series of natural hot springs back in 1883. They were helping to build the...
