Attractions - Banff / Lake Louise

For such a small and quaint area, Banff and Lake Louise offer too many attractions to properly list. Natural attractions includes the beauty of our mountains such as Cascade and Rundle in Banff; Castle Mountain and Valley of Ten Peaks near Lake Louise; and of course Victoria Glacier at Lake Louise itself. Lakes which are close by include Lake Minnewanka, just outside Banff, Morraine Lake outside of Lake Louise and the pearl of them all, the turquoise colours of Lake Louise.

There are also numerous must sees in our towns.  This includes the barochial Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel, affectionally called the Castle and first-class museums including the Whyte Museum, Buffalo Nations Museum, Banff Parks Museum and the newly renovated Cave and Basin.  Don't miss visiting the Banff Gondola and Lake Louise Gondola for unbelievable views of the towns and valleys of Banff and Lake Louise.
