Banff City



The town of Banff is at the heart of the Banff National Park in the Canadian Rockies, Alberta. Banff is named after Banffshire, Scotland, the birthplace of two major financiers of the Canadian National Railway.

Founded in 1885 after the discovery of the Cave and Basin Hot Springs, Banff National Park is Canada's oldest and most famous national park. Each year, millions of visitors come to Banff to marvel at the emerald waters of Lake Louise, walk amongst the flower-filled heavens at Sunshine Meadows, and drive beneath the towering jagged peaks lining the Icefields Parkway.

Snow-capped peaks, glistening glaciers and sweeping vistas are just one part of the allure of Banff National Park. You can enjoy all the comforts of home in the town of Banff and the village of Lake Louise, or step out into the wilderness and the home of some of North America's wildest creatures, including grizzly bears, caribou and wolves.

Due to the local young-staff population Banff has a 7 day-a-week nightlife. From British Pubs & Quiet Lounges to Nightclubs that play the newest dance music we have it all. On weekends expect to find a cover charge at the nightclubs, but, unless there is a special event most other bars will not charge admission.
