Best NP ever been. I been many, but this one is one of the best. Don’t miss Lake Moraine at Golden hour. It’s amazing. Also if you have time, do Yoho NP and Jasper. They all are worth your trip. Enjoy traveling

What a beautiful park! The views are incredible. I expected the weather to be a bit cooler than it happened to be. There’s lots to do for the outdoors enthusiast

Banff is absolutely lovely, it’s meant to be the oldest national park in Canada and it’s absolutely gorgeous. Make sure you buy a pass in advance (if you are in the national parks for more than a week it’s cheaper to get an annual pass)....More
