Top Tips for Visiting Banff
1. Shop on Banff Avenue
A combination of shopping, restaurants, museums and galleries, you will find countless things to do as you amble down Banff Avenue. We suggest you visit the smaller boutique stores to find yourself some authentic souvenirs.
2. Visit Lake Louise Early
If you want premium views of the stunning Lake Louise, we suggest you go there first thing in the morning. The lake is normally incredibly busy in the afternoon, so it is worth setting your alarm a little earlier to have it all to yourself.
3. See Lake Moraine
If you want to go slightly off the beaten track and avoid the tourists at Lake Louise, we suggest you visit the incomparable Lake Moraine. It is a little less popular but is without a doubt one of Canada’s most beautiful natural wonders – you won’t believe how blue the water is!
4. Golf at the Banff Springs Golf Course
Banff is known for its world class golfing, so practise your swing during your stay in the Banff Springs Golf Course. For something extra special, we suggest you take some time to explore the road leading to the club - you won’t regret it.
5. Check Your Hike Online
If you want to hike one of the countless paths available in Banff National Park, we suggest you check the route online before you go. Here you will learn the intensity of the hike – if it is easy, moderate or difficult - as well as the length of time it will take, the distance it will cover and the sights you will spot along the way.
