About Banff Lake Louise Tourism

Traveling in one of the most beautiful National Parks in the world

The Banff National Park was founded in 1885. It is the oldest National Park in Canada and the third oldest in the World. Today the Banff National Park is acknowledged as UNESCO world cultural heritage. Many animals like Wapitis, Moose, Wolves, Coyotes, Black Bears and Grizzly Bears as well as 250 bird species live in this park. Scenically the region in the southwest of Alberta has so much to offer, like the impressive Rocky Mountains right behind the park. Other highlights are the Sulphur mountain just above the city of Banff, the wild Johnston Canyon as well as the turquoise-blue Lake Louise.

 

The landmark of Alberta – Lake Louise

The mountain lake takes its name from the Princess Louise Caroline Alberta, the daughter of Queen Victoria. The characteristic color of the lake originates from degraded sediments from melted snow and ice of the glaciers. Around the lakeside are numerous hiking trails. Climbing tours and canoe trips have also proved very popular. From Lake Louise you get a magnificent view onto the 3,543 meter (11624 ft) high Mount Temple.

 

Banff – Canada's highest-altitude city

In 1883 during the construction of the Canadian Pacific Railway a cave with hot springs was found. It is called Cave and Basin and nowadays it is one of the most important attractions at Banff National Park. On this site the city of Banff was founded. With an elevation of 1,399 meters (4589 ft) Banff is the highest-altitude city in Canada. At the thermal spa in Banff Upper Hot Springs you can relax in the famous mineral water. Furthermore the city of Banff hosts the Banff Mountain Film Festival and the Banff World Television Festival each year.
