Banff National Park

Alberta

Straddling the spine of the Canadian Rockies, Banff was Canada's first national park, and it's the most popular. The park is insanely diverse, with glaciated peaks soaring more than 11,000 feet; icy, turquoise lakes; the largest cave system in Canada; the charming towns of Banff and Lake Louise; three ski areas; and a golf course.

Getting There

Fly to Calgary, drive 80 miles west, about 1½ hours.
