No, don’t confuse this with the national park. Banff is also the name of a town in Canada. The national park makes it the most known places in Canada. It attracts a lot of tourists every year. There are many things that you can do and see. If you are planning to visit Banff, here are a few things you can see.
- Banff National Park
Of course, you cannot miss out on this when you are in Banff. Banff National Park is sure to be explored. The first national park of Canada is quite high. Covering an area of 4000 sq. miles, there are a lot of things that you can explore. What came as a surprise to me was that the fact that you can enjoy every outdoor activity that you can think of. Starting from bird watching to skiing, you will find it all. I was thrilled by the wildlife found in the park.
- Lake Minnewanka
The glacial lake of Minnewanka is fed by Cascade River. The name has been given by the people of First Nations Stoney and means Lake of Spirits. They gave the name since they believed that there are spirits in the lake. However, this lake is not at all spooky. I went for day time hiking and found that it has a spot for picnicking. If you want to be in the water, avail the cruise tour that is available.
- The Banff Gondola
Take the gondola and enjoy the breathtaking view of the Sulphur Mountain. I was simply enthralled by the beauty. Even if you are scared of heights, the view will distract you to such an extent that you are going to worry about being scared of height. When you reach the Boardwalk of Sulphur Mountain, you can take a walk to reach the Sanson’s Peak.
