Altitude: 1463 Meters

Banff in short

  • Highest ski resort village in Canada
  • Good selection of restaurants
  • In the heart of the Banff National Park

Iconic Banff in the Canadian Rocky Mountains is perched at an altitude of 1463m above sea level, in the heart of the enormous Banff National Park with its turquoise lakes and miles upon miles of forests. The town of Banff has no shortage of cultural activities in addition to the fine skiing on offer. Just going for a walk amongst the gorgeous scenery is sure to take your breath away! And, of course, the skiing isn't too shabby either.

Banff lies in close proximity to three ski resorts: Mt. Norquay, Lake Louise and Sunshine Village. All three boast a generous amount of the light, dry powder snow that is characteristic of the Rocky Mountains. In the town you'll find live music nights as well as several art galleries by artists who are inspired by the beautiful nature around them!
