Easily one of the most beautiful locations on the entire planet, Banff National Park is Canada’s oldest National Park. Established in 1885, its dramatic and breathtaking scenery has delighted generations of visitors, whether they’re taking snapshots of Lake Louise or climbing one of its towering peaks.

Banff connects to nearby Jasper National Park via the Icefields Parkway, and the mountain parks together are a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
