Banff National Park

About Banff National Park

Banff National Park is Canada's oldest national park and encompasses 6,641 square kilometres of mountainous terrain, with many glaciers and ice fields, dense coniferous forest, and alpine landscapes. Banff National Park has a subarctic climate with three ecoregions, including montane, subalpine, and alpine. The forests are dominated by Lodgepole pine at lower elevations and Engelmann spruce in higher ones below the treeline, above which is primarily rocks and ice. Mammal species such as the grizzly bear, cougar, wolverine, elk, bighorn sheep and moose are found, along with hundreds of bird species.
Lake Louise

Lake Louise is a glacial lake within Banff National Park in Alberta. Lake Louise is named after Princess Louise Caroline Alberta the fourth daughter of Queen Victoria. The turquoise colour of the water comes from rock flour carried into the lake by melt-water from the glaciers that overlook the lake. A variety of hiking trails exist around the lake. Some of these trails are open to mountain biking and horseback riding, and the surrounding mountain faces offer opportunities for rock climbing. Kayaking and canoeing are popular activities during summer.
Moraine Lake

Moraine Lake is a glacially-fed lake in Banff National Park outside the Village of Lake Louise in Alberta. It is situated in the Valley of the Ten Peaks, at an elevation of approximately 6,181 feet. The lake, being glacially fed, does not reach its crest until mid to late June. When it is full, it reflects a distinctive shade of azure blue. The unique colour is due to the refraction of light off the rock flour deposited in the lake on a continual basis by surrounding glaciers.
Peyto Lake

Peyto Lake is a glacier-fed lake in Banff National Park in the Canadian Rockies. It was named for Bill Peyto, an early trail guide and trapper in the Banff area. During the summer, significant amounts of glacial rock flour flow into the lake from a nearby glacier, and these suspended rock particles are what give the lake a unique bright, turquoise colour. Because of its bright colour, photos of the lake often appear in illustrated books, and the area around the lake is a popular sightseeing spot for tourists.

The Upper Hot Springs are one of nine different naturally occurring hot springs in the Banff area. The hot spring water flows naturally through a big crack in the rock called the Sulphur Mountain Thrust Fault. The source of the water is located at higher elevations on either Sulphur Mountain or Mount Rundle. The springs are created by water traversing through cracks in the mountain from Mount Rundle and Sulphur Mountain.
Lake Minnewanka

Lake Minnewanka is a glacial lake located in the eastern area of Banff National Park and the 2nd longest lake in the mountain parks of the Canadian Rockies. The lake is fed by the Cascade River, flowing east of Cascade Mountain, and runs south through Stewart Canyon as it empties into the western end of the lake. The area is rich in animal life and you can see elk, mule deer, mountain sheep, bears.

Cave and Basin National Historic Site

Cave and Basin National Historic Site of Canada is located in the town of Banff, Alberta, within the Canadian Rocky Mountains and is a National Historic Site of Canada. The Cave and Basin is the lowest component of nine sulphurous hot springs clustered in three groups on the northeast flank of Sulphur Mountain. The water is heated geothermally from an estimated depth of three kilometres. The Cave and Basin is the only cavern large enough to comfortably accommodate groups of people.
Bow Falls

Bow Falls is a major waterfall on the Bow River, Alberta just before the junction of it and the Spray River. They are located near the Banff Springs Hotel and golf course on the left-hand side of River Road. The falls are within walking distance of both Banff and the Banff Springs Hotel, so they are visited by many tourists despite their relatively small size.

Beehive is a mountain located in Banff National Park of Alberta and was named by J. Willoughby Astley in 1890 because the mountain resembles a beehive. The mountain is also known as the Big Beehive as there is a smaller beehive-shaped mountain nearby called the Little Beehive.
