Canada has a lot of naturally beautiful scenery, which you can enjoy and take in the wonderful surroundings to the fullest. Few locations have the power to simply stun you into silence and bewilder you with amazing scenery and wildlife that simply flourishes in as natural a habitat as possible.
Designated as Canada’s first national park in 1885, Banff National Park is marvellously suited to those wanting to sample an alternative to the norm of a beach resort, it is also suited to those who wish to explore and take part in an adventure. Situated in an area of the Canadian Rockies, the park offers numerous opportunities for hiking and biking while those wanting to take it a little easier have the chance to explore attractions of the park.
An iconic place within the park is Lake Minnewanka, which is the largest lake within Banff National Park where a host of activities can be undertaken such as hiking and biking trails being present on the north shore as well as boat tours being made available for those wanting a closer look at the crystal clear waters of the lake.
The other lakes in the region include Moraine Lake where canoeing can be enjoyed across the powdered blue tinted lake as the refraction of light from the rock flour deposits ensure it provides a sure-fire spectacle.
While the park is rich with wildlife, exquisite forest covered mountains and deep valleys that plunge to canyons below as well as providing epic waterfalls that feed the perfectly clear lakes; Banff National Park ensures that you will not regret your visit. With many activities such as hiking, climbing and cycling available as well as the opportunity to canoe down the parks rivers and across the lakes, there is something different for everyone and each activity has its own sense of adventure which enables you to capture the essence of true Canada.
With snow-capped mountains and lakes as clear as the day, Banff National Park is truly one of the natural world’s wonders. With mountain ranges whose reflections are also mirrored perfectly in the alpine lakes, it is not shy of spectacular scenery and also ideal opportunities to experience the great outdoors.
Situated within the Canadian Rockies mountain range, Banff is set within an almost otherworldly environment with its picturesque angles and from views that can be enjoyed from the top of Sulphur Mountain; the park doesn’t fail to deliver on everything you would want from such a setting.
The most interesting thing associated with Banff National Park is it doesn’t matter whether you visit it in winter or summer, the park is alive and always welcoming to those that want to experience its wonders and take part in the activities that the park is known for, the experience of visiting the park will also stay with you forever.
