About Banff

The town of Banff is located in Banff National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site in the splendour of the Canadian Rockies. The town is approximately 126 km (78 mi) west of Calgary and 58 km (36 mi) east of Lake Louise. It is the larger of the two towns in Banff National Park, nestled in the mountains, about an hour and half drive west of Calgary and four hours south of Jasper. The park is easily accessible for International travelers via Calgary International Airport. Banff is a premier destination to witness some spectacular scenery and one of Canada’s top touristic destinations.

Banff was settled in the 1880s, during the development of the transcontinental railway, after workers stumbled upon a series of natural hot springs. In 1887, the reserve area was named "Rocky Mountain Park" and marked the beginning of Canada's National Park system. More information on Banff can be found at:,,
