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.

 It includes the Town of Banff, which was established in 1883, and the Village of Lake Louise.

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.,[object Object]
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. ,[object Object]
