The resort town of Banff offers a great introduction to the natural splendour and cultural heritage associated with the Canadian Rockies.
Home to a diverse community of families, sportspeople, tourism industry workers and lovers of outdoor pursuits, the destination enjoys spectacular views of lush parkland and towering mountain peaks.
Banff was originally established as a siding on the Canadian Pacific Railway, and was constructed with the aim of attracting tourists to the picturesque national park. Indeed, the town's first street was positioned to provide the perfect way to see the glorious Cascade Mountain.
Some of the main places to visit in and around Banff include the remains of the Bankhead coal mining town, the Cave and Basin National Historic Site and the beautiful Cascades of Time Gardens. Those interested in learning more about local art, history or culture may want to consider heading to The Banff Centre, Harmon Gallery, the Canadian Ski Museum West or the Buffalo Nations Luxton Museum.
Potential excursions and activities from the resort include a trip to the local hot springs and a ride in a gondola to the 7,500 ft Sulphur Mountain, from where you can take in some amazing views of the nearby lakes and mountains, as well as Banff itself.
Lake Louise is one of the most popular attractions in Banff National Park - and it is little wonder.
Named after Queen Victoria's fourth daughter, Princess Louise Caroline Alberta, the alpine lake measures more than 8,202 ft in length and occupies a scenic setting at the bottom of a number of mountains studded with glaciers.
Visitors can head to the Chateau Gardens to take in the sight of the impressive Victoria Glacier and explore the hamlet of Lake Louise, which is situated nearby and is the highest community in the country at 5,033 ft.
Cultural attractions in the village include the Art of Man Gallery, where you can peruse tribal artworks, as well as luxury jewellery and watches.
Venture further afield and you can see another picturesque lake, Moraine, in the Valley of the Ten Peaks.
