Banff—Elk, Moose & Skiing
Go 15 minutes from the town of Banff and you're in the wilderness, home of bear and wolves and elk and moose, and countless other treasures of nature.
Don't think Banff is a hick town without luxuries, though. It's not. You'll find unique shops, restaurants and nightclubs. But Banff is no ordinary town. Banff was developed originally as a service center for the park that surrounds it. Today you'll find nature lovers and tourists and artists and writers who add to the town's character.

Banff National Park
Banff National Park provides opportunities for wildlife-watching, hiking, boating, climbing, mountain biking, skiing or being in nature amongst alpine wildflowers, and beautiful waterways that meander through dense forests that are old and inviting. The park was created in 1885 and it is the world's third-oldest national park.
Banff Upper Hot Springs
The hot springs are located in Banff National Park in Canada, near the Banff townsite. They are one of nine different naturally occurring hot springs in the Banff area and were formed by the Sulphur Mountain Thrust Fault. The hot pool is outdoors and while in the pool, visitors can look across the valley to Mount Rundle.
