Banff, the beating heart of the Rockies

Holidays in Banff

More often than not, first stop on the Rockies road trip is Banff, and what a place to start your holiday in Alberta. Whether you are staying in the town itself or just outside, a more delightful collection of independent restaurants, cafes, craft breweries, distilleries and shops would be hard to find. Stop in at the Rocky Mountain Soap Company to stock up on locally made beauty and health products, grab a bag of freshly popped toffee pop-corn from Mary’s, enjoy a stone-baked pizza from the Bear Street Tavern and treat the sweet tooth to a COW’S ice cream on the way home.

Beyond the town itself, a world of adventure awaits in the National Park beyond. Visit the Johnston Canyon to enjoy a journey into the geology of the surrounding area, head to Lake Louise for the day and hike to one of the hidden tea-houses beyond the lake. On the way home, take a quick detour down the valley of the ten peaks to catch a glimpse of the astounding Moraine Lake, which in our humble opinion, offers one of the most impressive vistas in the area. From hiking, rock climbing and mountain biking in the summer to skiing, snowboarding and skating in the winter, your Alberta adrenaline rush starts here.

Lake Louise
Lake Louise
About 40 minutes north of Banff lies the iconic glacial fed Lake Louise. Perhaps one of the Rockies top attractions, during the summer months its beauty is somewhat dampened by the thousands of tourists who flock to the lake shores for a selfie or three. So, how to see this natural wonder on your own? The answer is to set an early alarm, grab a coffee to go and get there before anyone else. Not only can you have the view to yourself, the magnitude of the surrounding mountain vista is simply breath-taking.
