You might have not heard of this before or have you?
Yes! It is Banff Canada, in the Banff National Park, which is also a world heritage site.
This obviously means that the place holds special physical or cultural significance.
Historic Cairo, The Great Wall of China and The Great Barrier Reef in Australia, all
world heritage sites are well known around the world. So, we are in good company
indeed! The Canadian Rockies are known for their biological diversity and natural
beauty. Therefore, if you are in search of best summer vacation ideas or a unique

Summers are a great time to visit the Banff National Park. The weather in Banff is great
around this time. Banff only gets 19 inches or 472 mm of rain every year. Banff’s rainiest
month is June. At times, this region experiences warm temperatures of around 21 C
during the day and low humidity, which is usually during the months of July, August
and September. At the height of summer, daylight hours last until 11 pm. Therefore,
there is no other best time to experience the Canadian Rockies.
Banff is completely surrounded by mountains. Cascade Mountains have its identifiable
cascading waterfall; Mt. Norquay is the huge backdrop to the township of Banff and Mt.
Rundle is one of the most photographed mountains. All over, it can be said that there is
beautiful scenery everywhere and can be termed as “a photographer’s paradise”.
With this amazing mountainous terrain, hiking is the best activity and quite popular
here. The great thing about Banff is the diversity of its trails. You can take the Sundance
Canyon walk or try the Bow River Trail, which is a beautiful and peaceful walk along the
river that passes through the town. The Sundance Canyon walk takes you to a marvelous

extreme whitewater kayaking at the Red Earth Creek (Class 5+), if you can handle the
thrill. You can even head up to Lake Louis, which is a 50 minutes distance from Banff,
canoe in front of the glacier and tour the Chateau Lake Louise. What an amazing day
trip, will not it be?
What do you think of horseback riding through the Canadian Rockies? You can either go
extreme or opt for a short 1 – 3 hour ride if your body cannot handle the rush.
