I have travveled Banff National park since 1960, The town itself is just another tourist trap with souvenirs made in China, but the surrounding is fantastic lots of hiking trails, with lots of wild life They can be dangerous Stay a safe distance from Bears they maybe looking very tame but are unpredictable.

Sinds 1980 kom ik regelmatig in Banff,het is mijn favoriete vakantiebestemming.
Het mooie springhotel en de meren rond deze stad zijn prachtig en meer dan de moeite waard om te bekijken.
In 4 weken tijd hebben mijn vrouw en ik ruim 400 km gewandeld in en rondom Banff.
