    CANADA’S FIRST NATIONAL PARK
    • Canada is a land of wide open spaces with much to see and explore. The incredible diversity of the Canadian landscape allows for every type of outdoor recreation and adventure.
    • When you visit Canada you can enjoy hiking, canoeing, rafting and cycling in the summer, skiing, snowshoeing and other winter sports when the snow blankets the mountains - there's always a great reason to get outside and experience nature.
    • If you'd like to go hiking in the Canadian Rockies or canoe while surrounded by mountain peaks, Fresh Tracks can provide you with an unforgettable vacation in Banff, Alberta. If you'd prefer other activities, there's many more to choose from at Banff National Park, Alberta.
  • History of Banff National Park
    • Banff National Park is Canada'sfirst and possibly its best-known national park.
    • It includes the Town of Banff, which was established in 1883, and the Village of Lake Louise.
    • It has many lakes, retreating glaciers and ice fields and offers practically face-to-face meetings with moose and other wildlife.
    • The park is located in the Rocky Mountains, west of Calgary in the Province of Alberta.

    Park Founding
    • The Royal Geographical Society sent the Palliser Expedition west during 1857 to look for a possible railroad route. Several other significant explorations occurred within the area during this same time.
    • Accessibility to the Canadian Rockies improved when the Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR) was completed in 1885. The park was founded that same year, when the railway linked the most western province of British Columbia to eastern Canada.

    Where is Banff National Park??
    • Banff National Park is located in the Canadian Rocky Mountains on the Alberta side of the Continental Divide.
    • It is situated 80 miles west of Calgary, 250 miles southwest of Edmonton and 530 miles east of Vancouver. Commercial airlines service each of these three Canadian cities, and buses to Banff and Lake Louise run year round.
    • If you are driving into the park, the Trans-Canada Highway (#1) runs west from Calgary into the park and through Banff and Lake Louise, then continues west towards Vancouver. From the town of Banff, Lake Louise is located 35 miles to the west, while the town of Jasper in Jasper National Park is 180 miles to the northwest.
    • Tour buses operate within the Four Mountain Parks (Banff National Park is bordered by Yoho, Kootenay and Jasper National Parks). There are also several car rental agencies in Banff and Jasper town sites, as well as in the neighboring cities.

    • There are three resorts to choose from in Alberta's Banff region, Sunshine Village, Lake Louise Mountain Resort and Mount Norquay.
    • Famous for its Champagne Powder snow, Sunshine Village encompasses three mountains and is about 15 minutes’ drive from Banff town. A little further - about an hour - is Lake Louise, a more quiet and romantic setting and suitable for all levels of riders.
    • Mount Norquay is considered more challenging and has been skied upon since 1926.
