Whenever I come across a bucket list anywhere or see a photo from Banff National Park, the comments are always ‘I want to go there.’ Banff NP is actually one of the top vacation destinations people want to travel to in the world. So I feel pretty darn lucky to live just over an hour away from this amazing place.
Banff National Park is even more beautiful in person than photos may suggest (something about feeling very small amongst the mountains). Living in Calgary, we have visited Banff in every season and of course, being Canadian, winter time is my favourite but you’ll love it no matter the season! There are some parts of Banff that you can only visit for a short period of time in the summer as it can be dangerous with bears and their cubs in the spring and early snow fall in the autumn and winter. So if there are particular things you want to see and do, plan appropriately so you are not disappointed (but really it is so pretty how could you ever be disappointed?)
I wanted to share some photos from our many trips into Banff National Park, and since photos speak better than words… I will just let the photos do the talking.
