Among the world's oldest national parks, Banff National Park serves as a World Heritage-listed mecca for cyclists, hikers, skiers, bird-watchers, mountain climbers, and anyone else with a passion for exploring vast untouched wildernesses.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Columbia Ice Field and Bow Valley Parkway. There's lots more to do: explore the activities along Moraine Lake, appreciate the extensive heritage of Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise, take some stellar pictures from Fairview Lookout, and see the interesting displays at Whyte Museum of the Canadian Rockies.

To find other places to visit, reviews, more things to do, and other tourist information, you can read our Banff National Park trip builder.

In August, plan for daily highs up to 24°C, and evening lows to 5°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 14th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel back home.
