Postcard-perfect Banff is one of Canada’s most popular tourist destinations. For skiers and snowboarders taking cheap flights to Banff, the towering peaks (Mount Rundle at 2,949 metres, Cascade Mountain at 2,998 metres and Mount Norquay at 2,134 metres) and knee-deep snow, bountiful wildlife, natural hot springs and exciting nightlife is just the start of what promises to be a memorable vacation.
Banff was “discovered” in the 1880s when Canadian Pacific Railway workers spotted natural hot springs on the side of Sulphur Mountain. It was not long before the area was being promoted as a resort and spa. By the late 1880s, the reserve area spanned 673 sq km, the start of the National Park system. In 1985, the United Nations declared Banff National Park a World Heritage Site.
It’s Canada’s highest town (it stands at 1,463 metres) and the biggest town in Banff National Park in the Rockies. Two ski resorts are close to the town – Sunshine Village and Ski Norquay – and Lake Louise is just a 58km drive away along the Trans-Canada Highway.
